Family Circus, 6/19/05
On Father’s Day, the Family Circus once again trots out the tired old “Billy takes over for a day” gag; what with Billy’s little brother Jeffy actually writing the strip now, the actual point of this exercize in meta is becoming increasingly difficult to parse. However, this strip does have one thing going for it, in that it features the patriarch of the good Family Circus family being spurned by God himself. Who hasn’t wanted to see Bil Keane get the big thumbs down from the Almighty? One wonders if Yahweh’s rejection of the Keane clan is the result or the cause of Dolly’s flirtation with patriotic Wicca.
