I knew Russians were good at programming but this proves they are not only good but fast and hardworking as well! Hats off to the developer of these mashups.

InfiniteComic – random comic generator based on tweets

Quickie

twitter-apps-twitter-flickr-mashup-infinite-comics

InfiniteComic Says

The Infinite Monkey Comics random comic generator was semi-inspired by A Softer World, a web comic where two people take the time to put photos together with seemingly relevant text. Infinite Monkey Comics takes a similar approach, however with less deliberation (and even fewer humans), and presents you with a random image from Flickr superimposed with some random text off of Twitter based on keywords of your choosing. Think of it like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, however instead of reproducing Shakespeare those monkeys are creating original comics.
