I have recently and quite accidentally become acquainted with an amazing on-line / web comic, XKCD. Few folks who don’t themselves maintain a web comic can come close to realization of how much work is involved, how much one’s creativity is strained, how many milkshakes it takes to power great art. Ummm, well, yes, occasionally there really is great art in web comics. Yes, that’s hard to imagine in a comic where all the characters are stick figures. But these folks pull it off and do so with some of the deepest humor the modern world can offer. Or is that “odifer”? But most poignant of the humor on the site is the pop-up “comments” when you mouse over the comic panel, which, sadly, doesn’t work when I embed the comic here…
So, you need to go to XKCD your own damn self and check it out.
I would truly love to see some future White House Press Secretary do this
Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)
