Done in one!

This seems like the perfect moment to remind people of the Dysfunctional Family Circus.
Also that Bil Keane is an asshole with a team of lawyers.

RIP, Bil.

What's weird is I liked it when I was a little kid, and then a friend of mine said, "Why? There's nothing funny about it."
Then I thought about what he said, and he was right; I think I just liked all the little details in the larger illustrations. I just found it interesting or something I guess, because it really wasn't funny at all!

The statue will be in the corner of the park, waiting to suck.

The statue will never ever age, civilizations will rise and fall, but the Bill Keane statue will never ever ever age, it will remain static and never changing

If you ever need to demonstrate the whitest thing ever in the history of humanity, point them to the Family Circus.

I always liked BK's drawing style.  I think he had something of an architecture background, and his illustrations were very accurate perspectively and fun to look at.  And the earliest cartoons were actually somewhat bawdy, like the kids coming in from the football game blurting out to mom about Daddy's Little Bottles.

Actually, Bil was the one who called off the syndicate lawyers and acted like an adult.

"What's a newspaper?". Family Circus can't be called a comic because it's not funny and no matter how much Marmaduke approves.

I for one am waiting for a statue to the greatest newspaper comic artist ever. , ,CATHY GUISEWITE!!

For the record, McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park is a great place to take the kids on a nice day.  Lots to do.

Bill Griffith was a fan:

Met Bill Griffith once at an art gallery. Dared him to eat a Twinkie slathered in Tabasco sauce. He did it.

Curiosity got the better of me. This is what people usually call a wake up call. What the hell am I doing? What the fark is wrong with me that I'd go looking for that?

Came here for those exact panels. Leaving satisfied and somewhat creeped out.

As a twelve year veteran foundryman in the bronze sculpture industry, I can unequivocally state: "That chunk of metal sucks hyena taint."

And not one comment about the statue looking like something out of a Lovecraftian novel with children growing out of his back as he tries desperately to get away.
