HAPPY APRIL FOOLS' !


From LarkNews.com :

ONTARIO, Calif. — Jack Chick, author of Christian tracts, made a surprise purchase of some of the world's best-loved comic strips and is spreading the gospel in typical Chick fashion through the Sunday funnies. Garfield, Ziggy, Blondie and a dozen other strips now belong to the Chick Publishing empire and are filled with hooded apparitions, angels and other menacing fare. Chick's strategy apparently is to combine classic Chick elements with strips' longstanding formulas. Darla Clark, a newspaper reader from Baton Rouge, says she was surprised to read Sunday's "Blondie" strip in which Dagwood stands before the Throne of God giving account for his laziness and gluttony. It's the first in a series called "Dagwood, This Was Your Life!"
This is the best humor site I've stumbled upon lately. I found it this morning in Ben Smith's blog for The Politico in a post about Barack Obama healing the lame.

Of course, if you don't want to go to Hell, you might prefer the real deal.
