The Sunday funnies today were a little extra-weird today, sometimes bordering on creepy.
Barney Google and Snuffy Smith – 01/25/2009
Poor Jughaid. All he wants is cake and ice cream. If it means he’ll end up toothless, short, and bald, with a giant nose, he’s totally fine with it. At least he has something to aspire to.
Beetle Bailey – 01/25/2009
Here, we see Sarge, wading aimlessly through a creek, seemingly oblivious to the fact that he’s getting wet. He’s staring off into space, wide-eyed. Maybe Beetle’s antics finally caused him to snap.
The Family Circus – 01/25/2009
Sick of their parents’ constant yelling and arguing, the Keane kids decided to build a replacement family from snow. Jeffy’s cuddling up next to his snow creature, futilely craving any type of human contact.

I noticed Ted starting down the path to crazy-town a few months ago, but it looks like maybe the whole family could be headed there before too long.

Continuing my campaign to expose everyone to new comic strips, I’d like to introduce you to “My Cage“, a cynical and humorous strip about a late twenty-something, Norm, who works in an office, and realizes life isn’t at all how he had expected it would be. He aspires to be an writer, but feels trapped at his job (hence the strip’s name).
The strip primarily focuses on Norm, his girlfriend, and his coworkers, though we occasionally get a glimpse of Norm’s family.
This particular strip has some of Norm’s co-workers in it, but check out the My Cage Archive to see plenty of other strips. The strip started on May 6, 2007.
My Cage – 01.21.2009
I’ve been meaning to mention My Cage on this blog, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Yesterday’s strip is a great example of the general humor of the strip, and I think it illustrates perfectly how many people feel. Non-conformity isn’t always particularly easy, even if it is often the best option.

So it’s finally come to this.Â After years of coaching losing softball teams and his dead end career as a Strategic Sourcing Manager, Ted Forth is going the way of Grandpa Jim.
