Spider-Pig and its inspiration

Yes, of course the Simpsons movie is the funniest movie I've watched this year. I would have put it second to Borat, but that's not fair since Borat was pure unscripted slapstick (looking at you, Academy Awards, get your stuff in order)

Meanwhile, people are thinking the Spider-Pig (though indeed the breakout character of the movie) is the most original idea since PB&J, while Marvel has been publishing Spider-Pig comics since the 80s:

Spider-Ham, Spider-Pig... Poor Peter Porker would probably be seen as a rip-off of Spider-Pig if Marvel were to publish another comic with him now! It's Tim Hunter versus Harry Potter all over again!
