Heaven knows we’re miserable now. This Charming Charlie, a Tumblr blog that puts the Smiths’ lyrics into Charles Schulz’ Peanuts comic strips cleverly enough to deserve its title, has announced it is receiving takedown requests from the Morrissey-led band’s licensing company, Universal Music Publishing Group. Those blockheads!
The A.V. Club points to a post titled — of course — “I Know It’s Over,” in which the blog’s visual mashup auteur writes that six posts have been removed already, with more to come. “If you like the page, please save copies of the comics to your own computer,” the blogger writes. Now we almost don’t even want to read Morrissey’s off-again, on-again memoir.
Stop us if you think you’ve heard this one before: This Charming Charlie is (probably soon to be) dead; long live Odd Peanuts Wolf Gang Kill Them All.
