The Family Circus
Bil Keane's The Family Circus has graced the comic pages of the newspaper for as long as I can remember. Because the format is usually a circle with a single line "joke" and it's always there in the top left corner, I usually read it. If nothing else, The Family Circus requires the least effort to actually read.
I have never found a single Family Circus comic strip to be even the slightest bit humourous. It's just not funny. Not even a little cute or enjoyable. They're awful.
I often wonder who is reading The Family Circus and busting a gut. Who has a better day because of what PJ or Billy said or did? These people must be out there because this comic strip has survived for decades.
