Today is Mother's Day.

I think Bil Keane's Family Circus installment for today said it best.
While the ladies within our family are honored for a scant 24 hours, they do everything conceivable to help their loved ones the remaining 364 days a year.
But Mothers do come in just about every variety imaginable.
There is the know-it-all, as portrayed in Mel Lazarus' Momma comic strip, or Helga, the apparently ever suffering wife of Hagar the Horrible.
There are the new Mothers, as portrayed within Baby Blues and the recently restarted For Better or For Worse. The kind, caring, and maybe at times overprotective type as in Cathy.
And there is even the former Mothers who are now grandmothers, as portrayed in Rose Is Rose and other comic strips.
But no matter what type they are, children still love their Mothers.


And in case you haven't guessed it by now, the person behind our resident comedienne Ms. Waxy Dragon (one amongst many Internet avatars) asked for the day off to be with their Mother, but did leave us a Mothers' Day themed joke.

What is the "official" dance of Mothers' Day?
The Mom-bo.

See you next weekend for more Sunday Funnies.
