Ever notice you’re the hero in every story you tell?


This Nick Galifianakis cartoon was originally published on February 10, 2013 for the Carolyn Hax advice column in The Washington Post and other syndicated newspapers. The illustration shows a man calling out his super-hero buddy on the fact that, though he may help others, he’s also the one that points that out, as every story he tells ends with his saving the day, taking credit and other indications of self-absorption and needing attention.
