Life imitates Art (comic absurdity)

Up until now, my favorite example of life imitating art was the increasing # of blades in multiple-blade razors, which was parodied in a Saturday Night Live commercial in the first ever episode of the show, in 1975 (at the time, there were only 2 blades in multiple-blade razors, and they proposed the then-absurd premise of a THIRD blade!)

But now … well, just check out this 1993 Onion “fake news” headline!

Unrelated, I’m sad to hear that Studs Terkel died today – not surprising, since he was 90 or so, but he is another great one who is now gone – fortunately, he leaves an amazing legacy in his writing and recorded interviews.
