How has this not gotten wank yet?

I mean, I saw this comic in the paper a couple of weeks ago. Not that I enjoy family circus. I doubt if anyone alive still ENJOYS family circus. Yet I read it every time I read the paper, just to see how bad it's going to be! Dill and Farris have even started what they call, "the next panel" where every Sunday they complete the Family Circus by drawing in the missing panel. It is usually very... wrong. To put it mildly.

Anyway, the Family Circus is probably the worst comic I've ever seen. It's out of touch, boring, stupid, I can not think of enough ways to describe how terrible this strip is. Though when I read it a few weeks ago, I got to use another word to describe my hatred. Racist. Check this out:





SERIOUSLY??? They seriously got away with publishing this and with NO BACKLASH???? How does that happen in todays society? Are they really getting away with so casually stereotyping Chinese culture with FORTUNE COOKIES???
I kept reading the papers, the gossip blogs... waiting for the backlash. And nothing. No reprimand, no apology, nothing.

Maybe that just goes to show that I'm the only person who still reads that craptastic comic.

  1. I am sure you are right - you were the only one to read the comic that week. I sure as hell didn't read that, 'cause I would have thought the same thing!

  2. dang, also, your book was mentioned on this week's Lime n' Violet podcast. Congrats!
