** [[http://explosm.net/comics/4770/ This one]] would have been depressing on its own, but at the end it provides another depressing twist.

* In late August 2017, Kris began a series of comics (starting [[http://explosm.net/comics/4704/ here]] and ending [[http://explosm.net/comics/4724/ here]]) revolving around a man named Jim discovering that his son is the result of an affair with his wife. Understandably shocked, he runs off and plans to off himself after [[DrowningMySorrows drowning his sorrows]] and settling in a motel, but after seeing a family of ducks with a squirrel in the middle, he decides not to. The story ends with Jim divorcing his wife and getting the hard parts out of the way, and returning to his son for a heartfelt reunion. [[spoiler:Nope. The second stack of panels in the ending is a DyingDream as Jim bleeds out from self-inflicted wounds in the motel, as seen in the [[http://files.explosm.net/comics/Kris/mailman7_cyanide.png secret comic embedded in the final panel.]] At the top of that comic is another hidden comic... except, it's the first comic of Depressing Comic Week 9. [[FridgeHorror As in, the one where the kid talks to his dead father about what happened after, which is also by Kris.]]]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wbHuqYKODo Grandpa's Storytime]], It starts nice, pretty much with the perfect setup for an average C&H short. But it goes from horror and surprise to sadness and wondering what will happen to the kids after ridiculously quick.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlCfkY4ZJ6I This video]], with the SarcasticTitle of "[[BilingualBonus La Comédie]]", features a clown being forced into prostitution. The look on the clown's face at the end says it all.



** To elaborate, Larry is essentially depressed. ''[[UpToEleven Very]]'' depressed. [[spoiler:So depressed that when his co-worker tries to cheer him up, and then screams at him in frustration when it fails.]] The worst part is that this is TruthInTelevision.

** A man and a woman are crossing the street, when the man notices a car headed strsight at her. He quickly pushes her out of the way [[spoiler:and the car stops in front of him. The concerned driver gets out, and we see that the woman is lying motionless on the ground. The man cradles her and silently yells to a group of onlookers. The next scene is a pan-over of pictures and awards she had won before it's revealed that she's now wheelchair-bound and in a vegetative state, as the man glumly brushes her hair.]]

** Sad, Sad, Larry continues with [[CosmicPlaything Larry]] finally [[spoiler:attempting suicide. Of course, the series would be over very quickly if he actually succeeded, so his first attempt fails [[BungledSuicide by having his drop from a hundred-story building send him right into a conveniently-passing dump truck filled with pillows]]. Then, once regaining awareness of the situation, turns his head to see the building he works in being demolished, with no warning or reason. Cut to Larry being wished goodnight by his dad, thus revealing his status as a BasementDweller, and him sneaking into the garage to commit suicide by leaving the car running with exhaust pouring in. Cue his parents sneaking into the garage to have sex on the hood.]] Larry's expression says it all. Even ''worse'' is that even though [[spoiler:they're fully aware their suicidally depressed son is watching, [[KickTheDog they keep doing it. In FRONT of him.]] Cut to the next day, where on the TV, the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Delberry Dismemberer]] is on the loose with his chainsaw. Larry tries to hang himself in the living room, but fails once again when his weight yanks the ceiling fan out of the ceiling onto him... and then his father, eating a sandwich in the bathtub, falls through the ceiling on top of him... This leaves Larry hospitalized in a full-body cast, unable to move. Cue the Delberry Dismemberer [[NightmareFuel rampaging through the hospital]], hacking people to death. We finally see Larry show some [[HopeSpot hope]] in his eyes... The Dismemberer, however, decides to simply leave him there [[ForcedToWatch to watch the entire thing]].]]
** "It's a Sad Christmas, Larry" begins with our favorite CosmicPlaything [[spoiler:being offered a gift by his friend, which turns out to be a pair of oversized fuzzy dice... for the [[FunnyAneurysmMoment car that was totaled in a recent accident]]. Larry tries to play it off - barely - and then takes a sip from a mug he was given that reads "Daddy's Boy." Cue exposition that his dad was fatally injured in the accident and is now on his deathbed. Larry's friend tries to console him by explaining that his own dad's in the hospital too, most likely not going to make it either... only for [[ConsolationBackfire the hospital to call, confirming that his dad will be home for Christmas]]. Within the next few hours, the father arrives, and immediately yells "You're not my son!" at Larry, [[KickTheDog hitting a sore spot]]. Fast-forward to dinnertime, and Larry is all but forced to say grace and give thanks for [[BlatantLies all the good things in his life]]. After being stopped by his friend, the hospital calls once again to put Larry's father on the phone. Larry's dad is about to die, and decides to use his last words... to [[YankTheDogsChain tell his son that he's pretty much to blame for the situation]] before flatlining. His friend says to feel free to dig in once he's done crying. [[DespairEventHorizon Larry begins to zone out completely and have vivid flashbacks of the accident]], before being asked a question by his friend about whether or not he would do "something like that." Larry's answer gets him [[DownerEnding promptly thrown out of the house into the snow.]] The screen pans out to show that [[CrossesTheLineTwice he was in a wheelchair the entire time]].
