Your Unnecessary Spot Illustration of the Day

This was drawn for Smithsonian Magazine to illustrate a piece on various laws. Benford's Law states that in an argument passion increases in direct proportion to paucity of information (the less you know the louder you get); Godwin's Law is that, as an argument gets longer (specifically an argument on the internet), the likelihood of comparisons to Nazis or Hitler becomes greater; Murphy's Law we all know, some of us too well.

I love it! Had never heard of Benford's Law but it definitely makes sense.

Also, what a clever way to draw a person calling someone a Nazi without using any words. Very well done.

Murphy's and the Peter principle were all I knew. Good one.
