The Nietzsche Family Circus

What’s more insightful and hilarious than a stack of Sunday papers with all the Family Circus cartoons cut out, sans captions? That same stack paired with a pile of Friedrich Nietzsche quotes, sans context. The Nietzsche Family Circus has it all: Guile and wit, philosophy of mind, charmless drawings paired with penetrating reflections on the will to power. So very hard to pick just one.

  1. I thought if you saved the picture it would include the quote. Alas, the text is… text.

    So, I’ve been compulsively refreshing the page trying to recover that first match-up: a picture of Billy with a model rocket ship (that looks like a cruise missile) in hand with the words, “Swallow your poison, for you need it badly.”

    I have the URL string for the quote now… but no photo.

  2. I know! Once you start, it gets totally compulsive. You gotta hand it to the guy – not only did he come up with a great confluence of art, philosophy and technology, he also came up with a great way to generate a ton of page views per visitor in order to hawk those banner ads.
