Title text: This was my friend David's idea


Family Circus is a comic characterized by single-pane round comics with a caption below the comic. Jeff is a character in the Family Circus and the dotted line wanderings are a frequent theme of Family Circus comics. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental illness that compels the sufferer to perform repetitive actions. Common symptoms include, but are not restricted to, excessive hand washing and repeated opening and closing of a door.

The comic depicts the character Jeffy as having Obsessive-compulsive disorder, and traces his movements over a period of time. The dotted line that depicts his movements returns frequently to the kitchen sink, presumably to wash his hands.


[Picture shows a pathway winding through trees to a sink inside a house, out to some swings and back to the sink, out to a ball and back to the sink...]
Caption: Jeffy's ongoing struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder
