The truth is funnier than fiction...

Here's my New Yorker cartoon about a fictitious Alan Peterson:

Here's the email and photo I received from the real Alan Peterson:

Alan, thanks for getting in touch- If I'd known you were real I would have made the couple happier to see you!


  1. Who would have thought . . . ! I wonder if Alan Peterson, M.D., knows a couple that looks exactly like the approaching pair? I would think that his home town paper, or even New Yorker, would love to have this exchange between fantasy and reality.
