The 'Capitalism' Che comic strip questions the iconic face.

Che fought against capitalism only to have his face plastered all over t-shirts and shot glasses -- an ironic joke that this cartoon outlines so well. Is this a sign of an Internet community that is more politically aware? The 'Capitalism' Che comic strip is a good laugh at an old and obvious joke.

Implications - Parodies have taken on a different form with artists poking fun at revolutionaries. This new form of humor has taken iconic figures and dulled them down to a level that people can relate to in many ways. Artworks and designer brands can take this concept and create friendlier products for consumers looking for a good laugh.
