Stupid punchline. In the original myth the feathers were attached with wax and thus melted when he flew too close to the sun.

Yes and no. The Greeks hated hubris (exaggerated pride or self-confidence). I think that today the comic speaks to non-acceptance that a person may have made a mistake - or the overly optimistic, as in "No you are wrong - mortgage-backed securities are safe and nothing can go wrong."

What it doesn't show is that these wings were the prototype. He has six other boys locked up to be used for guinea pigs.
