* AltText
to:
* AltTextAltText: Every single comic has a second punchline if you hover your mouse over the comic for a few seconds. This is probably one of the most well-known examples of such, in fact (even providing the trope page's image).

* ViewersAreMorons: This directly goes against the above assertion, sometimes twining the two. While many of the jokes in the strip are aimed towards those in specialized fields or hobbies, Randall has a tendency to explain these references and jokes within the comic. ** This was more prevalent in earlier comics, which can probably be attributed to the fact that Wikipedia was still new and pretty unknown when Randall started his strips, and so things that are now fairly common knowledge among anyone who has spent any time on the internet (like the [[http://www.xkcd.com/30/ Donner Party]]) were still only known by those who studied certain fields or the sort of people who get on Jeopardy.
