Family Circus: Frank Sinatra? Elvis? The Beatles? Grandma, don't you have any of these things by Justin Bieber?

This cartoon is hilarious because Billy does not understand that media platforms have changed since the time when Grandma was young.


  1. And also because whatever Keane is currently drawing this monstrosity condescendingly holds the music of past eras in higher regard than that of our own. He does this by employing what is essentially a strawman, holding the three great titans of the 1950s and 1960s against a very recent arrival whose fame will likely be ephemeral. His fame will likely be so ephemeral, in fact, that this comic won't make much sense in five years.

  2. Oh god, Billy is plotting with Justin Bieber to take over the world.

    No one is safe.
