Jenny’s Fumetti

The Internet was all in an amused tizzy yesterday over the antics of one Jenny, who apparently quit her job at a brokerage by sending a batch of 33 photos around to everyone in the office wherein she outed her boss as a sexist, Farmville addict.

Well, apparently “Jenny” is a hoax. She’s actually an actress named Elyse Porterfield, and was hired by the theCHIVE.com to be the face of this hoax. For what purpose, no one is sure, though the comment on the site, “You’ll see in the coming days she’s as smart as she is sexy” seems to indicate she is more than a temp at theCHIVE.

Why are we mentioning this on this blog at all? Well, if you ask Scott McCloud,

I say the the Dry-Erase Girl photo quitting is comics. Who’s with me?: http://bit.ly/ajUFKe #alsoreallyfunnyless than a minute ago via web


And yes, we sometimes call photocomics like Dry Erase Girl “fumetti” (popular in Italy) but still a form of comics, IMO.less than a minute ago via web

So it goes. You can also see some more examples on his blog.
