The Free-Floating Dysfunctional Family CircusTM Archive v1.1.2

Heartwarming cartoons drawn by Bil Keane, gone horribly awry.

Please note that this feature has nothing to do with the actual Family Circus comic, and is not authorized by Bil Keane, his owners, or maintainers. If you're looking for the real Family Circus, proceed to King Features and read as little of this as possible before you do yourself irreparable harm.

I act alone and of my own free will, without encouragement, support, or approval from Spinn or anyone else.

As I obtained this archive from another person, the changes below in regular type are ones done by previous keepers of the archive; the italic ones are changes I've made:

If you're a King Features lawyer, don't bother with telling me to take this down because:

  1. This DFC archive is a work of parody, and falls under fair use and parody 1st Amendment protection
  2. There are dozens of copies of this on the net, many less responsible than this one
  3. reasonable steps are taken to ensure this material is not confused with the real Family Circus. To wit: individual caption pages are tagged with a NOINDEX meta tag, to keep accidental visitors from bypassing this disclaimer, thus preventing confusion about who has written the captions – and do you really think someone's going to think that Bil or Jeff Keane is responsible for this?
  4. This archive is intended for private use. That is, I have it on my site so that wherever I am, I can see it. I do not intend for the masses to find it. If they do, well, see nos. 1,2, & 3 above.
  5. I'm not responsible if someone else doesn't follow the above guidelines and uses this material in a manner that infringes copyright. Talk to them, not me.

I just didn't want these pages to die. I laugh at most, cringe at some, and occasionally find one that makes me a bit sick. But here they are, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
