"What's Water?"

The old story goes something like this:

Two young fish are swimming along when they are passed by an older fish. He says, “Good morning, boys. How’s the water?” And one of the younger fishes asks the other, “What’s water?”

The story is most commonly known for David Foster Wallace’s use of it in his 2005 commencement address at Kenyon College. Cartoonist Will Kiley Santino is clearly alluding to it in this comic.

I’ve discovered Santino only today and spent far too long choosing exactly which of his comics to feature here at Laughasaurus. Do yourself a favor and browse his entire collection on Instagram—including the ingeniously racy ones.
