For those of you wondering if I’ve seen today’s Family Circus, the answer is yes. In it, creator Jeff Keane mocks Pearls Before Swine.
If you haven’t yet seen the strip, I present it below. Please take a close look at the book in Daddy Keane’s hands.
If you can’t read it, the book’s title is “Pig and Rat Get Lost.” And it bores the Keane kids so much, they leave the room.
I am now thinking about filing a lawsuit against the Keane family for their appropriation of my characters’ names. But having been a lawyer, I know the hardship involved in a protracted legal fight. So instead of continuing this blog entry, I need a few moments to think. While I do, here are some random Pearls strips to entertain you.
