The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it.

Nietzsche Family Circus : Family Circus cartoons randomly combined with quotes from Nietzsche. Remixing Family Circus is nothing new, but I find this one fascinating.

Its main flaw, unfortunately, is having no easy way to share your favorites.

They need to mix in some of the photoshopped graphics with the legit images.

There's some nice serendipity in action.

Sounded fun... oh well.

I've always thought that if you stare long enough at Family Circus, well, you know...

When ye gaze at the dotted lines and follow Billy around the neighborhood, the dotted lines gaze back.

Great concept - I especially liked the one about all the interesting people missing from heaven; I guess I'd better start getting dull but its probably too late.

Too many favorites to count, really, but here's one of the best I got.

This one has something of the tragic about it.

Insipid Family Circle + uber-depressant Nietzsche = highly amusing.

Who'da thunk?

Nietzsche is not uber-depressant! The "gay science" is not interior decorating, you know.

My favorite, so far: Authoritarianism at its finest.

Amusingly grim.
Great fatherly advice.
Sublime.

Also, does anyone else think of Stewie from family guy saying these things?

The vertical version of Tom Tomorrow? The characters tend to look out, toward the reader, right? *eyebrow*

Oops, I was wrong about that. How did I miss it?

I only wish there was a larger selection of both cartoons and quotes. Several of my favorite combinations have already been found and posted here.

I wonder if anyone has done this with Ayn Rand. I'm imagining Cathy given an angular, art deco makeover, Garfield declaring himself "cat as he should be"

Ryvar, RichardP: truly sublime! what a great idea.
