Graphic designer Lauren LoPrete has created This Charming Charlie, a mashup of classic Peanuts comic strips with lyrics penned by Morrissey. The results are nothing short of brilliant!

Lauren explained to WYSK “I’ve always been a fan of The Smiths and Peanuts – an old gig poster for a 1986 Smiths show in Chicago inspired the blog, it features Charlie Brown laying on the ground saying “why why why?”. I figured I would see how many lyrics I could connect to the comics, and it’s worked out quite well.”

Um, yeah!

    Who knew that the dark ironies of these two art forms would overlap so well? I want to see Depeche Mode take on Dr. Seuss (both so quirky and hopeful)!
