Manatee Comics is available at

Manatee is an automatically generated webcomic system that attempts to complete a common English expression in a funny or thought provoking manner. To this end, the system mines the internet for sentences, tallying words that occur next to one another. This statistical information then guides the construction of a humorous or insightful phrase that is set agaist the back-drop of a related photograph.
