The Nietzsche Family Circus

If only it were this funny.

If you're anything like me (and you should hope to god that you're not), you absolutely hate the Family Circus. As in, you feel for the Family Circus the same kind of white-hot hatred that is normally reserved for people who abuse cute puppies. The fire of a thousand blue suns couldn't come close to the hatred that I have for Bil Keane's atrocious offal.

That being said, this is funny. I mean really funny. It's the Nietzsche Family Circus, in which random Family Circus panels are combined with random Nietzsche quotes. The results are often reminiscent of what philosophers and biologists refer to as "emergent properties." if you don't believe me. By themselves, neither the Family Circus or Nietzsche is funny. However, when you combine them, hilarity ensues. Who could have predicted that outcome? No one, that's who. Hence, we see an emergent property.

Here's my favorite Nietzsche Family Circus so far:

Die at the right time!

That's some funny shit.
