I used to think "Fred Bassett" was the world's worst strip. But I was wrong.

Others think the worst strip was Kathy Bates in About Schmidt. I'm sticking with MF.
the nation's worst comic strip
I still say The Family Circus is worse, as is For Better or For Worse (technically, though, that's Canadian and doesn't qualify).
FC is certainly worthy of the title. I despise it and just on a non-political, comics as art level it is indeed the worst. But MF has the added distinction of a right wing agenda.
One of my dreams is to someday see the FC strip where the father has a heart attack mowing the lawn and tells Billy to call 911 only to see Billy follow one of those dotted line paths all over the neighborhood while dad dies clutching his chest and cursing his son. Some day I may get around to a post venting my spleen on the horror that is the Family Circus.
Jambo, was it you who told me about that Dysfunctional Family Circus site? They had filthy captions for FC cartoons. That was so cathartic.

Yep, that was me. I don't remember the url but it can't be too hard to find. It was crude, horribly offensive, darn funny, and well deserved.
BTW, I don't have a problem with For Better or Worse. Sure it's trite, and rarely funny but jsut somehow seems "nice." Like something my parents would put on the frig.
I don't think any of us is supposed to like all the comics.<< Home
