What a Fakir

I got a number of questions from readers about this cartoon so this seems a perfect time to clear them up.

Question: What the hell does this mean?

Answer: Some guys in the Middle East and South Asia are famous for lying on beds of nails. I’m not sure why, maybe it takes their minds off how miserable their lives are otherwise. Meanwhile, in other parts of the world, there is a product called a “memory foam mattress,” which is made of this new kind of foam stuff that indents with your body, giving you a perfect night’s sleep. I have one of these things and I really love it. (A memory foam mattress, not a bed of nails.) So this cartoon is a combination of those two very different things with the intention of amusing people.

Question: Why are those guys each wearing a diaper on their butt and head?

Answer: They are not diapers and it is racist (or something equally bad) for you to even say that. I won’t dignify this question with an answer.

Question: Did the guy who carved Mount Rushmore out of granite eat too much of the mountain?

Answer: No, but this guy did.
