Racism requires an element of "human" as the target for it to qualify. Since, as you stated, Canadians aren't "people", you're fine.

Fun fact: this comment is currently in both the xkcd "panel shuffle" (making xkcd slightly worse) thread and the Twokinds "slightly worse" (panel shuffle) thread.

I can't get onto my "drawing device" right now, but just had an idea for one, so I'll describe it:

Something to do with comic 528, with Google-, or "minus.google.com" presenting a 404 error is still better than Google+

Okay so I just suddenly had inspiration to draw this. Uses the art from various xkcd comics, but the concept isn't based on anything xkcd.

In the version I recalled it's Montgomery in the last line, and Goebbels was 5'5" so my version makes naturaler sense.

Pretty sure it's just slander (or libel since we're printing it!) of dead acceptable targets - no real basis in reality, just funny. And Goebbels rhymes with "no balls".

Eh, given its history, I'm not sure that's really a fair characterization. They were plenty alive when it started circulating. Were still acceptable targets though.

And for the reverse...

Code: Select all

\begin{tikzpicture}
   \begin{axis}[title={Trustworthiness of Information by File Extension},
         xbar,
         width=11cm, height=11cm, enlarge y limits=0.1,
         symbolic y coords={.gif,.jpeg,.jpg,.ppt,.png,.doc,.xls/.xlsx,.svg,.txt,.csv,.pdf,.tex},
         xtick={0},
         ytick=data,
      ]
      \addplot coordinates {(18,.tex) (16,.pdf) (15,.csv) (12,.txt) (11.7,.svg) (9,.xls/.xlsx) (4,.doc) (3,.png) (2.7,.ppt) (0.5,.jpg) (-1.5,.jpeg) (-6.5,.gif)};
   \end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
With some more effort it could probably be made more fancy, and more accurately match the comic, but I don't really know LaTeX, and was working mostly from samples, so... you get what you get.
