Lovely. I knew I'd seen that quote about death and time before, it's in a William Burroughs spoken-word piece, "Ah Pook is Here" -- it's slightly differently worded, Burroughs' version is, "Death needs time for what it kills to grow in."

The Sunday school one is pretty awesome.

Oh and he does them every day with that day's new Family Circus! Beat that.

I'd link to the Dysfunctional Family Circus archive, but it was taken down on the request of Bil Kean so don't bother Googling for it.

It appears there's been at least 4 'alternative caption' Family Circus sites, none of which are/were connected to each other.
There's also Garfield without Garfield, and I think there was a Peanuts/Neitzsche crossover as well.

Came to say the same thing. The 1994 animated version of Ah Pook is Here (now on Vimeo) left quite an impression on me back in the day.

I must read Nietzche now. I somehow wasn't forced to in school, but the snippets are good enough to let me know that I've missed out on something important.

Dysfunctional Family Circus was the best re-texted Family Circus.

About a hundred of my comments made the grade, if you include the ones by "Hideo Spanner." I'm very proud of that.

Oh, come now, you should know it's impossible to remove anything from the internet.
Honestly, though, it doesn't hold up that well. I think in those days the sheer novelty of the internet made things funnier. Remember when Joe Cartoon was the funniest thing in the universe? That frog-in-a-blender Flash animation? Remember when that passed-around proto-South Park short was enough to score Trey Parker and Matt Stone their own TV show, no questions asked? Ahhh, those days...

Wait… wait! Time, a landing field!
Death needs Time like a junkie needs junk.
And what does Death need Time for?
The answer is so simple.
Death needs Time for what it kills to grow in, for Ah Pook’s sake.
Death needs Time for what it kills to grow in, for Ah Pook’s sweet sake,
You stupid vulgar greedy ugly American death-sucker!
-- William Burroughs: Ah Pook, the Destroyer

It's sad when you draw a "comic," yet have no sense of humor.

I think you need to check the batteries on your sarcasm detector.

Peanuts can be made spooky with considerable ease. Just lop off the last panel.
On the subject of Time and recontextualization, it'll be a while before something tops Don't Hug Me I'm Scared #2.
