Ross, remember when we defaced that Family Circus book with our own captions? This is even funnier:

Awesome.  I wonder what ever happened to that book.  I'm positive that it was pure comedy genius, unparalleled in our time.  

Family Circus has got to be one of the worst cartoons ever put to page.  Though it's a tough call: you've got Marmaduke, BC, Garfield... even Dennis the Menace was pretty fucking bad (though might have been good once upon a time, I dunno).

You know, I have that book somewhere around here still... and, indeed, it is genius. 

I've always found it creepy how shapely Mommy looks in all those Family Circus comics. She wears some damn tight clothes. Must be Bil Keane's Christian repression manifesting itself in sexy drawings of his strip's matriarch... 

You know, Garfield is a goddamn work of genius compared to shit like Hi and Lois, Blondie and, yes, BC, which is still going despite Johnny Hart's being wormfood these days. I could write a dissertation about the state of the modern comic strip. For some reason, I'm quite emotionally invested in them.

This is kinda funny, too...
