Yet another twitter bot. I did this as a web project a long time ago, and turned it into a twitter bot to see how difficult it would be to write one of those. (Answer: about 15 lines of shell for the comic assembly and 10 lines of python to post to twitter.) It generates and posts a new randomly-assembled comic strip every eight hours.

I do like how every once in a while it spits out something that actually makes me laugh out loud, which is more than I can say for the source material.

Did this get C&Ded out of existence?

No; the original comic author's ongoing assholery made me decreasingly fond of the project, and I shut it off so I wouldn't feel like I was in any way endorsing his work or existence. The web version of it is still up -- search for "driblet" and the cartoonist's name to find it.
