Someone Unearthed A Comic Strip From 1921 That's Similar To A Modern Meme

Apr 17, 2018

On Saturday a Twitter user unearthed an illustration from a July 1921 issue of “Judge,” a satirical magazine from the time. “Judge” was published weekly in the US from 1881 to 1947. The drawing is credited to the “Wisconsin Octopus,” which was first published at the University of Wisconsin. The flashlight joke is remarkably similar to a current meme that juxtaposes what you think you look like with what you actually look like.
