, this is the problem with xkcd lately. I saw this mentioned under some Family Guy thread, and guess what? It also applies to xkcd, only it usually even forgets the wit to go with it. Glad I have a name for this symptom now.
'Avoidance.' Simple, generic concept. Okay so far. Bad execution. Here it is donebetter◊
. The result speaks for itself.
I won't even talk about how empty and spacious 616 was.
Ah. Randy said he wasn't going to do that, but oh well. What do we got? A joke that makes no sense without keeping up in the news. Afterall, we have no idea why that policeman would be there talking(what is going in the first panel i dont even) with that stickfigure. (There's no race either, apparently, which makes this look even lamer unless you count facial hair?)
@Ana: You know how I feel about opinions. Please check again in case you forgot. And I know what you meant. Yes, logic is just so helpless in the face of rudeness and sarcasm.
@Law: Incredibly convenient, isn't it? Is it so hard to accept Randall stole a joke? Can he do no wrong?
@Oscredwin: The parts of the link I was interested in advocating were the sections about "Opinions". You get what you see with the rest. With enough Fan Wank

@Sabbo: Perhaps you need better recognition skills? Would you accept BileFascination
@Jethro: There can be no "offence" (offense?). This is a thread for discussion of xkcd. If it's official position is "positive and postive only", (why is criticism labeled negative anyways) there can be no room for talk or growth or whatever it is people get from discussion. Assuming people who have contrary opinions to be trolls (or idiots; just putting that out there for other people) is a very bad habit that I'd drop.
Do any of you have (or rather, claim to have) an IQ of 224 ... ? On a side note, I don't think I can really be puntual.
