Worst: Is Family Circus giving Mother Goose and Grimm some competition for worst comic in the paper? This is day six in a row as either worst or runner-up for worst. Bad puns almost always will land you on the worst side of the ledger, especially if they're awkwardly set-up.
Runners-up: Blondie, Curtis, Mother Goose and Grimm (still perfect!), Red and Rover, Speed Bump
Conversely, is Pooch Cafe the best strip in the paper? I would have guessed Get Fuzzy. Get Fuzzy is one of those strips that could get hot and win five bests in a week. Still, Pooch Cafe is a surprise front-runner so far.
Runners-up: Watch Your Head, On the Fastrack, Lio, Frazz,
