Amaze your friends

the original nobody knows you're a dog cartoon by Peter Steiner from the New Yorker magazine

I get my research third-hand:
FunFact regarding the erroneous attribution of the great cartoon above: as I was doing the research required to create this post - what? you thought I just spewed this shit out? not likely - I came across several erroneous references as to its author.

One was that it was from Gary Larson and "The Far Side," another that it was by Scott Adams of "Dilbert." Wrong and wrong. The cartoon, by Peter Steiner, appeared on page 61 of the July 5, 1993 New Yorker. Amaze your friends with your treasure trove of trivia: remember, you don't have to say where you get your material.

Samuel Johnson's observation is true now more than ever: "There are two types of knowledge in the world; that which we have, and that which we know where to find."

A good supply of both is most useful.

FunFact: It is now believed that Johnson had Asperger's Syndrome. As I said, amaze your friends.

It also became an Off-Broadway Play.

(Fourth-hand props, of course, to Google.)
