I actually don't remember the exact date this originally popped up on S*P as filler, but I know it was January of 2004. The Rhyme With Witch
site was still not active, and this comic acted as a place holder for the S*P strip that was late.
Beyond that, I really actually hate both "The Family Circus" and "Mallard Fillmore." Actually, I hate pretty much all political comics. But if I had if there was a fight tot he death, I'd root
for Billy and he ran dashed lines around the duck. -R.
