They couldn’t imagine that these tasteful flogging and spanking films they created
Even as a kid, the simpering perfection of the Family Circus pissed me off. Somehow, this immensely annoying cartoon has become the most widely syndicated comic in the world, and it’s published in almost 1,500 newspapers worldwide. Just thinking about that makes me mad.
