The Saturday Comics: Marmaduke (So Good It HAD To Be Reposted)

I love this post. Now you might be thinking that as a writer I’d love everything I write, and I do (egotist that I am), even the bad ones. But this is different. I LOVE this particular post. And I have been saving it for a special occasion. What can be more special than Allan Keyes wedding? He’s getting married tomorrow, so in honor of my brother’s wedding, here is my gift to him, my favorite Saturday Comics post.

Hey, it’s cheaper than a toaster.

Marmaduke needs no introduction. No, scratch that, Marmaduke doesn’t deserve one. Marmaduke ranks high in the pantheon of the Great Unfunny Comic Strips. Top of that list? The Family Circus. But while Family Circus can at least claim to be a look at the human condition through the eyes of children, Marmaduke is simply an unfunny strip about a gangly dog.

Let’s take a look at some Marmaduke “comics” and see if we can find a shred of humor in them.

Ha! HA HA HA! Because dogs eat garbage! HA HA HA!

Here’s that wacky mother again! She’s running, get it? Because dogs bark when they are hungry! HA HA HA HA HA!

Now the kids are bringing the funny! They hung a bone around Marmaduke’s neck and called it bling! Yeah! Those white kids are so ghetto! Oh yeah!

Oh, that’s cute and funny! Marmaduke sees a woman carrying little dog and he wants to be carried too BUT HE’S TOO BIG! HAHAHAHAHA!

OK, now THAT’S funny! Marmaduke is screwing the guy on the sidewalk while the perverted little kid looks on- see the nasty grin on his face? He knows the score!

See? That’s all it takes for Marmaduke to be funny: hardcore bestiality and corruption of a minor. Now if only there were more panels like this. Then maybe Marmaduke would be pulled from the paper.

Saturday Comics: The Family Circus (2012)

I checked in on The Family Circus early in January. Know what? It wasn’t funny. It was NEVER funny. Want proof? Here is a current panel:

What’s the joke? I don’t get it! Are they going for heartwarming? Slice of life? I don’t even see where the humor is supposed to belong, unless you count the grin on the baby. He totally looks like he just filled his diaper, but I’m not sure that’s what they’re going for.

And for the record, this is the last time The Family circus was funny:
