Alt text: 'That was definitely not in my top 3 wishes.' 'Who said anything about YOUR wishes?'


Alt text changed due to text parsing effects.

You have to be more careful with oil lamps. Usually I keep a stopper in the end so the oil doesn't spill out like that. That could be dangerous and start a fire.

Apologies, the alt text should read integer(3).to_words, but some auto text change crap is changing it to display integer(4).to_words

Much like s/O.M.G/. parses to "Oh me yarm"

(quoting this post makes it look liked I typed wilkers, BUT I DIDN'T)

Stop making my brain melt, Randall ;_; <-- Not MEWTWO, s/RAN.DALL/. IT IS NOT APRIL FOOLS DAY TIL FRIDAY <-- FRYDAY

This was the first comic that made me laugh out loud in a long time.

I am in agreement because that was.... gross.... really gross....

I did not like this 0ne at all.... I'm really not all for this kind of humor.

Maybe Fr1day will be funny and less gross.

I, too, am going to pretend this comic never happened, because I personally like XKCD. Just not this comic.

My text is getting edited, and I do not like this. I don't like this saying things I don't want to say.

The wordfilters are part of mod madness, which is unrelated to April Fools Day. Last year it happened in February.

I totally agree. I'd have expected this from SMBC, not XKCD.
Still, I can't say it wasn't funny *snigger*

Totally immature, yes. But I am relieved to see a comic where the point isn't being belaboured, as has been happening a lot recently.

Oh. My. God. I laughed so hard I fucking peed a little.

The fourth panel makes it that much more priceless, to hell with the naysayers! That was TOTALLY unexpected.

You were half right.

We don't get audio with the comic, though, so you could be entirely correct...

Probably not, it's just what we've compiled so far. It doesn't help that the list is going to keep expanding until mod madness ends.

It needs an orgasmic moan.

Not saying it would add to the comedy, it just needs one.

Just seems to be a sort of gross way to get either an awkward laugh or target the people that think "it's a sexual joke so it must be funny" but just ends up being sort of gross.

To Randall's credit though, he did manage to avoid weakening the visual 'punchline' with post-punchline dialogue.

That was pretty funny actually. Unfortunately, it's also ruined very genie of the lamp story or picture I will ever see or hear, respectively.

Most of the comics that aren't trying to be really nerdy or referencing something semi-obscure have been rather C&H like for awhile now.
