I hate The Family Circus

Back in '98, all the lame comic strips pulled a fast one on April Fool's Day and took turns drawing each other's comics. It was lame, but Dilbert's Scott Adams drew The Family Circus. I remember at the time thinking it was particularly funny, because only one week earlier the big "news" story had been that Mommy from the Family Circus was getting a new haircut for the first time in like 30 years, in order to keep up with the new trends. I think the news stations picked it up as kind of a metaphor for the changing times, or the loss of innocence, or the power of nostalgia, or god knows what. Anyway, something reminded me of that comic, and I found it online, so here it is:

And you can see the other comic switcheroos here, but like I said, they were all pretty lame.

I did. You can always count on the creator of The Family Circus to make you want to puke on warm fuzzies and bland humor.

I can see why you possibly though this one was funny. The other ones are so bad that they make this one seem semi-funny (even though we can see that its not).

I honestly think that only the mentally deficient and nuns like Family Circus.
