Child Abuse is not Funny Edition (Mar. 16)

Another example of poor family dynamics. I, for one, do not find spousal or child abuse funny. The throw away panels did not run in the Post, so I chose this on the basis of the child abuse.

Runners-up: Blondie, Family Circus, Garfield (very easily could have been Worst. Jon is on hold the entire strip. It's just incredibly lazy and boring.), Hagar the Horrible, Red and Rover

I want some sentient sunglasses.

Runners-up: Agnes, Baby Blues, Baldo, Candorville, Cul de Sac, Doonesbury, Frazz, Pearls Before Swine, Single and Looking

Oh, give me a break. This For Better Or For Worse strip is not about spousal or child abuse. It's about the universal concept of people getting frustrated with each other and taking out their frustrations on the next person down on the totem pole. Lizzie, the baby, has nobody younger than her (obviously April hadn't been born yet), so she takes her frustration out on her doll. Nobody is being abused. It's just normal family dynamics.
