Do you make enough money?

From Slate:
Barfy may have barfed for the last time. The creator of one of the longest-running Web parodies said he may pull the plug on his Dysfunctional Family Circus site ... King Features Syndicate, which could not be reached for comment, said on its Web site that Family Circus fans consider Daddy, Mommy, Billy, Dolly, Jeffy, and PJ to be a "truly believable cartoon family." Galcik, and the thousands who visit his page each day, find that hard to comprehend. "It just lends itself to parody, it's just the saccharine wholesomeness of it," said Galcik, a 29-year-old Chicago Web developer. Since June 1995, Galcik has invited visitors to submit their own captions for Family Circus cartoon drawings. The site attracts between 50,000 and 70,000 page views a day. ... Another devotee of the site, who identified himself as Namgubed the Merry Elf, paid tribute to singer-songwriter Don McLean to mark the site's demise. "Bil Keane, Inc. had spoken, the DFC was broken. And the Web site I admire the most, could not accept a funny post, intended for a Bil Keane roast, the day the humor died."
