Parental Fantasy No. 1: Six Ways to Eliminate Barney. So begins one of Michael Fry's hilarious installments of Committed, the strip that epitomizes the trials of parenting on the run. From microwave dependence to quality time on the couch, from abbreviated fairy tales to Sunday drives on the information superhighway, Committed celebrates the experiences of harried parents everywhere.Send in the Stunt More lampoons everything working parents face, from having daughters who want to grow up to be Barbie to kid logic: Stop brushing our teeth, they rot, fall out...and bingo! We're rich! Thanks, Tooth Fairy! Parents suffer from job envy and attempt to track their kids' progress in school while trying to keep up with the neighbors next door. Wry and irreverent, Committed blends wild cynicism and warm humor into a strip that speaks to families across the nation.Committed first appeared in the alternative newspaper the Houston Press, and began national syndication in 1994 by United Feature Syndicate. Its edgy and offbeat take on the fiascoes of modern family life has been hailed as cutting-edge humor ever since. Last year's What I Want to Be When THEY Grow Up was a hit with parents and non-parents alike, and this year's Send in the Stunt More promises to be every bit as enthusiastically received.
