Indeed.

I don't have to work today. It feels nice, but there is so much other stuff I need to do, it's almost as if I don't have the day off.

If I'm not mistaken it's not any concern of the boss unless it happened to be an employee of his also on their way to work.

That makes me wonder, is there someone out there who is unnaturally sweetening things? And if so by what method?

By naturally sweetened, they speak of a process in which a sugar cane field is naturally flooded with the beverage (and by "naturally flooded", I mean accidental leakage from a holding tank higher up the hill; and by "accidental leakage", I mean purposefully poured; and by "purposefully poured", I mean the process isn't all that natural; and by "isn't all that natural", I mean they lied to you).

I thought it meant they were using sugar isntead of sweet n low or splenda
Which of course means that something is "Naturally Sweetened" or "Low in Fat", with no real middle ground...

That's what I think too, but like pseudoidiot kind of said, that implies that it can be unnaturally sweetened with sugar. And that's just weird.

Has this comic always been there? It came up as I was pressing "Random" today and I'd swear I've never seen it. Possibly it's just because I wasn't watching Firefly when I started reading xkcd and didn't notice it.

Bleh, I just woke up at 7:00 in the evening. What ... the hell ... was that about.

And I want Morgan Freeman to narrate my *life*. That would be awesome. Oh, and he should totally make it ironic and describe everything I do in dramatic, documentary style. Except, people would think I was insane for breaking out into laughter at the voice only I can hear.

Britslang is my guess, given Elminster's location and that Hellblazer comics teach me that "bird" is a slang word for "Woman" - like in Chicks.

Hence, elminster would normally be interested in a bunch of women outside his window having group sex. Knowing the species ruins the joke.

Kinda like I just did by explaining it.
