Re: 1471: "Gut Fauna"

I think this is the first time I've seen a character wearing clothes. Guess it also proves that XKCD characters are naked. :) Labcoats are worn over street clothes. Labcoats have appeared here and here and other xkcd cartoons. If your doctor is naked under the labcoat, I suggest a different doctor ...

BTW, Santa, according to wave-particle duality, is simultaneously taking all paths down all chimneys.
