Jersey Circus: Where Bil Keane Meets Snooky

Family Circus, a comic drawn by local comic Bil Keane, has been hijacked by fans of  Nietzsche and Dysfunction, but it really hit the comedic fan when Jersey Circus decided to combine Keane's drawings with lines from the stupid, unbelievable, yet kind of wonderful television show, Jersey Shore.

In 1999, Keane sent the author of Dysfunctional Family Circus a cease-and-desist letter and the Dysfunction was discontinued.

No word on a possible end for Nietzsche Family Circus or Jersey Circus, but we're sure Keane's thrilled.
