Art imitates life imitates TV

GalleyCat had an item that the band Fall Out Boy is licensing a comic book of themselves. This struck me as a hilarious example of circularity—the name of the band comes from Fallout Boy, the sidekick of RadioActive Man, a comic book hero in The Simpsons.

So, real people name their band after a fictional character on a fictional TV show, and then when they get famous, they create a fictional comic book version of themselves. Layers within layers! Where does make-believe start and reality end?
