Is there really anybody that enjoys the family circus?
Today’s comic stars Scott from Nerf This. This was based on a conversation we had AGES ago.
I have a major announcement about the near future of I am ARG. I’ve written a blog post here that explains it all.
My parents. My parents think Family Circus is funny. It makes me want to blow my brains out.
Nice chicken suit, by the way. 😀
Is that supposed to be Bill Watterson chasing and tackling you? xD
It’s scott from Nerf this.
I dunno, I always thought those endless wanders were kind of cute…
the endless wanders are cute. They are the only ones I enjoyed.
I only liked the endless wanders other wise I was reading the boondocks
I always liked the ones with Billy running around where there was the dashed line trail behind him. Or, rather, I liked them when I was 4. My mom still loves it.
I did too.
Really? Of all the comics you could diss, you’re going after the comic of a guy who died six months ago? That’s a bit cold even for IAA.
For the record, I enjoyed The Family Circus. I’m not saying I rushed out and bought the books, or anything, but I would read it quite happily when it happened to get in front of me.
Really enjoy this comic also.
it was six months ago and at that point he wasn’t even drawing the comic anymore. Thank you for enjoying my comic.
I envision panel four including ‘furry love’, but that’s just me.
I intentionally left it open like that.
Never heard of Family Circus before today, but they do seem to be a bit plain. But yeah, for the PC, conservative zealots out there, I would say that they deserve that comic. Me, I think I’ll stay around here.
This is pretty much what I was going to say. I really can’t enjoy Family Circus because it doesn’t make me laugh, never makes me wonder… I’m not sure what the writer was actually trying to do… show kids being dumb and unlearned?
Family Circus, like Denis the Menace, is one of those “If you have to think about it a lot, you’ll miss the joke” comics.
Personally I too really didnt care for them, other than the ones where the boy goes looking for his mom or dad. The foot pattern is cute because of the how long it takes him to get somewhere.
Yeah those wander ones were cute. I have a couple of arg comics written in that “wander style”
There is a reason for the chicken suit. It might take me all day, but I will figure it out.
He could just have added it for extra epicness.
both for the randomness and the fact that scott likes chickens.
Oh holy crap that makes this comic so much funnier. It’s been such a long time since I’ve read Nerf This I forgot about the chickens.
Effectively conveying the sarcasm in the last panel via the facial expression WHILE IN A CHICKEN SUIT? Genius.
Agreed: Family Circus = sometimes cute-ish, rarely funny-ish.
thanks and yeah rarely funny is putting it nicely.
christianity meets stepford wives meets children of the damned. yep that sums up F.C. for me.
A fine observation!
an apt description.
An appropriate summary.
Lol, what is the purpose behind the chicken suit???
scott loves him some chickens
I think ARG is trying to be Scott’s new Hussy
Hussy is the name of Scott’s chicken…
ARG, be thankful he’s not choking you while you’re in the chicken suit. Then it’d be a true dick joke.
90% of the strips in the daily papers are absolute crap really.
foxtrot still makes my day.
Aw yea foxtrot is one of my favorites.
Uh, besides yours of course mister Arg sir
bizarro was always a good one
Now I won’t get this grin off my face the whole day. Thank you, Arg 🙂
Hey, I LIKE Family Circus AND THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT BWAHAHA
Back when I was a young lad, and still read the fishwrap, I always got a chuckle out of Family Circus. It was a cheap laugh, a laugh you could easily find at any street corner or a back alley, but a laugh nonetheless.
I never got into Family Circus. Never really appealed to me like others did.
On a side note, I did like Calvin and Hobbes though, along with Pant’s are Overrated’s Hobbes and Bacon, and I wish there had been more of both.
lokking kinda COCK-y there ARG!
Did the real conversation also take part in a chicken suit with Scott tickling you? It’s important that I know.
