Are you feeling better…

…when you read about other feeling miserable?

I’m not. But lots of people seems to do that when they read this kind of gossip press.

I did a Swedish version of this drawing couple of years ago and now I’ve done an English version.

I think this kind of papers look the same all over the world. I call them cruel fairy tales/comics for grown ups. The only difference is that they use real people as characters instead of drawn ones. I like grown downs stories better. They have superheros and good powers always wins in the end 🙂

Are we such cannibals that we want to eat unhappy people and feel good about it afterwards?

I hope not, but really, why is it amusing to read about celebrities in misery? I never got that, but then I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer 🙂

I never grew up and I’m still in fairytale land where people that eat unhappy people loose when the story ends.

  1. Everytime I think I’ve seen it all,the world sneers and throws me another curve. One would be living a pretty pathetic life to enjoy this,no? I will stick with the stories where virtues win out in the end.

  2. That’s what I wonder, it’s called the ‘Tall Poppy Syndrome’ cutting down anyone who stands out for any reason – we do not often hear them praised or read Good News in the News Papers

  3. The problem with posts by unhappy people is that to show appreciation without writing a comment is that you must click like when you don’t like their difficulties – just the fact that they can write

  4. I have solved the celebrity problem. I don’t pay any attention to them. Don’t even know who they are except on the newspapers at the grocery store checkout. I don’t care about what goes on in their lives.
