    Family Circus

    Has this comic ever in it's history been funny, or am I just insane?

    If so could someone please post a scan or something of a funny one. Everyday at work I read this out of the hopes that it might actually be funny today, but in the last 2 years I have never read a single funny Family Circus.

    Never has there been a funny family Circus. They all are along the lines of God is Good or I love Grandma and just full of suck. The worst comic in history, followed closely by Ziggy and Cathy.

    I think it's the Adult Contemporary of the cartoon world. A nice safe cutesy haven for squishy christian parents. Needs more Metalocalypse.

    It's only funny when people add offensive and/or violent subtitles. Otherwise it's a freakish slice of right-wing Christian middle-America that makes me very glad to live on the West Coast of Canada.

    Its one of those things that inexplicably survives even though there is no reason for it to. Even garfield is funnier.

    For Better or for Worse is 10x worse than Family Circus.

    I find Ziggy sometimes funny.

    Um... what?

    This is absolute truth. I close at my work and I usually read the comics as I do the crossword and not once in 6 months have I even come close to a chuckle at this garbage comic.

    I don't know if it's changed or I've just gotten older, but I haven't read a good family circus in forever. That said when I was growing up I had a book of them and I loved it.

    For some reason, the only version of the Cathy comics I see are in Spanish. Shit is really confusing to me now, since nothing seems white-american more than Cathy - but in normal-ass publications where everything else is in English, like The Onion here in Madison, Cathy is in Spanish.

    (yes i realize it was never funny, but the spanish thing...i just don't understand)

    I agree that family circus is a terrible comic, but does anyone else hate Peanuts as well?

    Family Circus, Hi & Lois, Beetle Bailey, Heathcliff, Garfield, Pluggers.

    Not a laugh to be found between the lot of them. Seriously, people need to go to jail for making those.

    I liked Garfield when I was 6, but idk that I ever laughed at it.

    Lasagna, naps, dog abuse...I think Jim Davis is living out his lifetime fantasies through his pretend kittykat

    For as much as I miss Calvin and Hobbes, I am glad that he had the integrity to stop while it was awesome instead of totally whoring it out for anything and everything- crappy cartoon, theme park rides, sugar cereal, condensed soup, live action & CGI movie, adult diapers, Barbie doll, car race video game, so on and so forth.

    It is nice to see one fond childhood memory not ruined.

    Yeah that's pretty true. I get tired of seeing all those "Calvin urinating on [insert something I don't like here]" car stickers, though.
