Yeah, it's real. I saw it in the local paper last week.

Sad, but that's probably the most topical Family Circus in years. :roll:

Right up there with the time Sluggo knocked up Nancy, who then had to have an abortion.

Did we ever find out what happened to Odie's owner? I heard he died of AIDS.

Cathy got married.
Chuck thinks that I look to good to be a computer geek. I think that I know too much about interface design, css, xhtml, php, asp, perl, and ia (too name a few things) to not be one.

Are you talking about Lyman, Jon's roommate from the early 1980s? I think he moved out and moved on once he found out that Jon only had a thing for Liz. Once he departed, the strip was never the same.

I have no idea if you're right about Lyman, but he did have a great porn moustache.

Lyman, that's it. Couldn't remember the name. One of the great mysteries of the comic pages. As you say, though, great porn moustache.

I could never forgive him for abandoning Odie like that, just to go indulge his own perverted desires in a bathhouse somewhere.

Though the grapevine sez he was hung like a frickin' *horse*.

Garfield, for its first few years, was a deeply weird comic strip. The ambiguous relationship between Jon and Lyman was just one of its precious delights.
