I recently noticed that several webcomics I regularly read have made jokes referring to rather odd psychological constructs:
- ThingPart, with the Recursive Hallucination
- xkcd, with the Matrix effect
- Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, with the Experimental Triangle
A co-worker saw these posted on my door and mentioned that they had read some similar themes in printed comics. Which got me thinking: what if purveyors of daily comics attempted to coordinate their subject matter, in order to direct political and social commentary? Maybe we are all rats in their maze!
Well, maybe not.
