So art really does imitate life. Or life imitates art. Or something.
This comes upon the news that Adult Swim is launching a cartoon series called Mike Tyson Mysteries, in which, yes, Mike Tyson will solve mysteries with the help of his magical face tattoo (Really!) and a talking pigeon (Really times two!).
This is not to say Iron Mike's entire life has been something of a cartoon (although the chewing-on-Evander-Holyfield's-ear incident might apply), not to mention a tragedy, soap opera and horror story in equal proportion. It's just acknowledging that there's a certain circularity to him winding up as a cartoon character.
Oh, yes: No word on whether his old friends, the doofuses who stole his white tiger in "Hangover," will make a guest appearance. Speaking of cartoon characters.
