“Cartoonist found dead in home. Details are sketchy”

A popular pun about cartoonists (from a hypothetical newspaper headline) is:

“Cartoonist found dead in home. Details are sketchy.”

The joke was on the website Pun of the Day and posted on Twitter on May 19, 2009. The pun has also been printed on GIFs.
