It All Came True Anyway

I made it all up, and it all came true anyway.
That's the funny part.
- From Hell
by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell

I like this simply because it goes with the theme of telling fictitious stories that somehow bleed into our reality and become true. I suppose that would be an odd sensation, making up a bunch of stuff and watching it subsequently happen. But that occurs a lot these days, actually. Advertising, public relations, and media twist and tilt things to present them a certain way until enough people believe it. What's the old adage? If you tell a lie long enough and often enough it eventually becomes true. Something like that.
