You’ve probably seen Lisa Frank countless iconic Trapper Keepers featuring a psychedelic ice cream rainbow of cute animals. If you were in elementary school at any point after 1981, these hugely popular images are probably seared into your psyche. Lisa Frank’s eponymous company has been around since 1979.

And perhaps you’ve also heard about nihilism, “the rejection of all religious and moral principles, often in the belief that life is meaningless.” It’s the subject of lots of internet humor, like the wildly popular @nihilist_arbys Twitter account, which has over 125,000 followers.

Combine those two and you get Nihilisa Frank, a Tumblr dedicated to mashing those two ideas into one ridiculous series of images. The account was only set up last month, but already features words of misery from such sadsacks as Guy Debord and August Strindberg.

The site’s seventeen images skew heavily towards unicorns, but we’re hoping that one day the site’s as populated as the similar Feminist Lisa Frank Tumblr.

Here’s a few of our favorites.
