Life Imitates Art, which imitates Life Part Two

When something happens in real life that first happened in a web comic, it’s not really a case of “Life Imitating Art“, because usually web comics draw their humor from imitating life. However, two recent stories have reminded me of web comics from over a year ago.

You Can’t be Poor; You Has a Cellphone

From Jesse Taylor at Pandagon

Oh, my God – some guy at a homeless shelter took a picture of Michelle Obama on his cell phone. Now, keep in mind that nobody knows who this guy is (meaning that he could have worked there, or been volunteering, or just been some dude that heard Michelle Obama was there, or he could have also been homeless/poor), which hasn’t stopped conservatives from declaring him The Worst Drunken Negro In The World.

I was reminded of Lucky Ducky from Tom the Dancing Bug. Click the image to see the punchline. You might also want to check out the archive awesomely assembled by Aaron Swartz.
