February 25, 1953: The Peanut Butter Sandwich That Broke the Camel's Back

Read this strip at

I love this one.

How is Peanuts unlike other comic strips?  Look here.  It's not that Charlie Brown ripped the sandwich apart.  It's Lucy's expression of dismay, and her horrified observation, "He tore it to pieces with his bare hands...."


  1. Suddenly I feel like I'm reading Robert E. Howard.

  2. Go, Charlie Brown! This is a new one for me, and I'm not sure what had me laughing harder, the strip itself or John's comment. Next webcomic project: Howanuts - Peanuts strips rewritten in Howardian prose.

    "Crom! So you think to stain my peanut butter with the jelly from your filthy knife? You'll pay for that, dog!"

  3. Oh god someone so has to do this. If you do it redbaron78, you can count on a link from me!
