In this colorful MUTTS strip, Mooch is standing on his porch as Earl stands in the snow and says, "Happy New Year, Mooch!" With dramatic hand motions, Mooch replies: "A new year is not enough. We need to ring in new eyes! New ears! New hands! New feet! A new mind! A new backbone! A new soul." Earl responds, "Wow, this is going to be some year." "Ha! What else is new?" asks Mooch as he walks off.
