Cathy CK is a blog run by artist Eric Simmons that combines Cathy comic strips with quotes from comedian Louis CK. Cathy debuted in 1976 and followed the life of a single woman named Cathy. (The cartoonist who created the strip is named Cathy Guisewite.) CK is best known for his comedy and his show, 'Louie.' On the surface it may sound like the two don't go together well, but Cathy CK is surprisingly hilarious.

The comic follows Cathy through the humorous, if mundane, journey through her life. However, when paired with CK's quotes, each trip to the grocery store becomes outrageous and hilarious. Even if you aren't a fan of the comic strip or comedian, you'll likely find a reason to laugh when checking out Cathy CK.
