Karma Comes Around For Cyanide & Happiness Author

Well, I wasn’t expecting to see this, but I was browsing r/askreddit today and found this thread asking people about how long it’s taken for “Karma” to kick in (ie: getting asked for a job by someone who used to bully you).

I was really surprised and encouraged to read the top comment by Dave McElfatrick, author of the Cyanide & Happiness cartoon, talking about how he was violently bullied and now draws an amazing online cartoon (with todays strip being completely relevant).

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic
Cyanide & Happiness @ Explosm.net

His TL;DR:

TLDR: Bullied at school, wanted to kill myself, somehow used how it shaped me for good and now draw a hugely popular online comic for a living, thanks to kind people like you. Basically, fuck bullies.

I love it when karma comes around. Still waiting for mine though :)
