Jeffy gets existential in 'Family Circus'/'True Detective' mashup

For two months this winter many of us were swept up in HBO's True Detective and the serpentine search by detectives Rust Cohle and Marty Hart not only for a serial killer but also for the meaning of life and the nature of good and evil. And while not everyone was satisfied with the ending, most of us remain enthralled with the writing of Nic Pizzolatto and the existential nihilism of Matthew McConaughey's character.

And now we can experience both again, in a decidedly different form, with Time Is A Flat Circus, which combines dialogue from the crime drama with panels from the long-running comic The Family Circus. It's as terrific as you imagine.

If history is any kind of teacher, it won't be long before King Features Syndicate -- the Yellow King Features Syndicate?!? -- puts a stop to the blog, so enjoy it while you can.

Now someone needs to take stills from True Detective and pair them with quotes from The Family Circus ...
