Folklore in Popular Culture

For the last umpteen years I have had my storytelling students do an assignment on finding and discussing folklore in popular culture. Due to budget cuts, I will not be teaching the storytelling course at the university this year so decided to share some of the findings on this blog. In the comics this morning, I found three examples: one from the world of folktale, the second a proverb, and the third from mythology.
