In 1976, Cathy Guisewite introduced her Cathy character to the masses—a strip that eventually made its way to 700 newspapers, and plenty of cubicle walls. Yesterday Guisewite announced that Cathy will be ending her newsprint journey in October—meaning she'll no longer be obsessing about weight, chocolate, or her controlling mother. Guisewite told the Chicago Tribune, "I like to think that 'Cathy' is the voice for women who can't say, 'I feel stupid about something silly, but it still really ruined my day.'"

News of the comic strip's demise has spurred a "WaysCathyShouldEnd" hashtag on Twitter—we're partial to this one by Julie Klausner: "Hoarding experts arrive too late to find Cathy flattened under a heap of diet aids, cats and dating books." Perhaps Andy Samberg can reprise his role as the character on SNL this fall and make that ending a reality!
