Billy Hits The Ether

There are several web sites that I read every day, but the Comics Curmudgeon is one of my favorites. Put together by Josh Fruhlinger, the site uses the daily comics page as a springboard to freely mock the solipsism and often-insane plot twists of legacy comic strips ranging from Mary Worth to the Family Circus.

The humor generally favors insiders, as a familiarity with characters and recent plots is usually necessary to get the jokes, but there are some great standalone gags as well. The most recent is a particularly Aryan Family Circus whose punchline includes a talking snowman that could have been pulled from a Hunter S. Thompson acid trip.

Of course, as FLYMF readers know, there have been whispers that all isn’t right in the Keane household for some time now.
