Laugh Out Loud

Hello Muddah! Laugh (or Cry?) at Boomerang Kids With Walt Handelsman

You love 'em. Can't they move out, already?

Either the video service is temporarily unavailable or the requested video could not be retrieved. We apologize for the inconvenience.

"It's one thing to get a letter from your kid at camp, telling you he wants to come home," says two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and animator Walt Handelsman. "It's another to get a letter from a grown child saying they're coming back to live with you!"

Watch all Walt's toons. Vote for your favorite (look left, and down for the Laugh Out Loud poll!)

As so-called boomerang kids become increasingly common in a tough economy, Handelsman's take on the old Allan Sherman song "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah!" is especially timely, and maybe a little poignant.

"What I especially like is the way the members of this family love each other dearly," he says. "They're just getting in each other's way. There's no sourness about it. It's just a funny living arrangement."

You may also Laugh Out Loud at Mem'ries: The Way Things Are (Where Did I Put My Keys) and Spinning Wheel: What Goes Down Must Come Up! (An Ode to (Too Much) Plastic Surgery)
