“Classic” Lesson: Lesson #5 - Fame
This was one of the first STW comics I ever made, and it’s still one of my favorites - not because of the punch-line, but because it was the first original idea I first had for the comic (as opposed to adapting it from something else I had come up with).
I also love this one because it angers so many people who misread it as me saying that ‘there is more skill in profession X than profession Y’. That’s not what it says, but people never read it that way. It’s the skill required to reach a certain level of fame. So the long, long arguments about it in the comments of wherever it gets posted are delightful to read. Mainly because it initiates interesting debates, and because it proves some people need to learn how to read a graph.
And yes, the x- and y- axes are switched, but that had to be done for the sake of building up to the punchline.
