On the Power of Visual Narrative

Life Its Own Self sometimes does better than any old comical strip.

[Later edit: Dammit, the punch line is Photoshopped, thanks Devil's Rancher. Ugh, I just hate getting gulled like that.]

Someone had to go and ruin what was a perfectly good sequence of real photographs by photoshopping the final one. The last big, green truck didn't go in the water-- compare the very last shot in that series carefully to the fifth one down-- people in the exact same poses.

Other than that, I think they're genuine.

Yeah, but sometimes ya gotta play fast and loose with the narrative to make a good story.

Wait...that sounds too much like Republican policy.

It was funny as soon as the big truck showed up.

That happened to me once.
