Peanuts = The Smiths?

So I love Charles Schulz's Peanuts strip. I am actually in the midst of reading through all the collected strips that are currently coming out in two year volumes. And I also happen to love the 1980's Manchester, England-born band "The Smiths." But I NEVER made the connection between Morrissey's lyrics and the strips dark and existential themes.

Brava to the Oakland-based graphic designer Lauren LoPrete who began the Tumblr account named “This Charming Charlie” where she inserts Smiths lyrics into Peanuts panels. And they are seamless, my friends. Do you like Peanuts or The Smiths? What's your favorite newspaper strip?
