Tomorrow: Dolly Summons Shub-Niggurath, the Black Goat of the Forest with a Thousand Young; Hilarity Ensues

I've always loathed Bil "Don't Call Me Bill" Keane's craptacular "Family Circus" comic strip. It's trite, it's treacly, it's poorly drawn (even more so now that Jeff "Don't Call Me Jeffy" Keane has taken over the strip) and so on and so forth. How many fucking times can the whole punchline be some half-retarded kid mispronouncing "spaghetti and meatballs?" In the "Family Circus," it's twice a month.

So when I stumbled upon this parody, which masterfully combines sentimental schmaltz with Things That Should Not Be -- via Defamer, via Boing Boing -- I knew I had to share it with you, dear readers. Somehow, I never pictured Jeffy as a member of the Chorazos Cult. He always struck me as more of an Azathoth acolyte -- he's the Seething Nuclear Chaos, you know. Enjoy!

1. I comment aplenty.
2. Though it would've been tricky, I wish there could've been a dotted-line strip parodied or, less tricky, one involving Grampa in Heaven.
