This Nick Galifianakis cartoon was originally published on April 20, 2012 for the feature Carolyn Hax: Tell Me About It in The Washington Post and other syndicated newspapers. The illustration shows a man telling a bartender that lying to himself and completely denying the possibility that his spouse is cheating him is preferable to actually knowing.
