    So far I have seen five cartoons (four of them on the same day) that make fun of the plagiarism issue, but all of the others used Lincoln’s “Four score and seven years ago…”. In comparison to that , there is a certain brilliance in quoting Porky Pig.
    See also: Jeff Stahler, Jim Morin, Stuart Carlson, and Jeff Danziger.

    Checking the dates reveals that all three cartoons were published on the same day (July 20th). Lead times are much shorter for editorial cartoons, but not that short. In addition, the settings and implications of each of the three cartoons are completely different. Given the canonical nature of the Lincoln quote, it’s much more likely that this is just a coincidence.

    It’s rather amusing that on the same day, two artists selected exactly the same line to make a point about plagiarism, see Jeff Stahler (July 20th).

    See also Nick Anderson (July 17th), but ignore the bigoted, polemic flame war in the comments.

    Ignore the polemic flame war, Anderson is right on target; see also Dan Wasserman (July 18th).

    Just how many shades can he make? … this line of thinking is going straight to “L” (in a handbasket).

    Especially if he were suffering from nicotine withdrawal.
