I like this a lot.
In a similar vein, The Nietzsche Family Circus
Somewhere a parent is explaining to a child what “Peanuts” was. Then comes the explanation of ‘newspapers’.
Then comes the wild guess as to why a dead guy’s strip still gets printed in the comics section.
/yeah, it’s a cranky comment
//would rather see new art & comedy, but that’s what the ‘net is for- even peanutweeter works here
Brilliant, yes, truly “random”, I doubt it: most of the panels seem too perfectly fitted to the tweet.
Right you are ill lich! From the site:
@Peanutweeter matches kinda random Twitter posts with somewhat less than random PeanutsÂ® comic strips by Charles Schulz.

Oh, man, the 70’s. What were our parents thinking?
My parents could easily have a strikingly similar photo of me squirreled away somewhere.
Those Iconix folks have no sense of humor. I’ve dealt with them, to nobody’s benefit. Oh well.
In a similar vein, there is (was?) Qwantz Twitter
Takes a tweet from the Public Timeline and splices it together with a random second panel from Dinosaur Comicsâ€¦
Sadly, the site’s returning an Internal Server Error at time of posting.
This is brilliant!
Wow! So quick to share!
Very cute :-)
