Either way, it makes pseudoidiot look stupid. Can we all just celebrate that?

Also: if you're going to edit Secretary: Part 1, please be original. There have already been three versions where someone just replaced the last panel with some internet/pop culture meme. It's been done, okay? Change some other part of the frickin' comic!

Hey, I'll even do one for ya. Took me ten minutes in MS Paint:

Just a pointer on spoilering your attached images:

- When you attach an image, click the "Add the file" button. This will cause a new button to appear below the main textbox for the post.
- Select the image you just uploaded and click the "place inline" button. It will put the image wherever the cursor is in the post editing box
- Select the text including the [attachment] tags, and click the "spoiler" button above the text editing box (or manually add spoiler tags to your post).

This way the thread won't accordion-grow as the images load after the page opens, and the "view next unread post" feature works much better.

It's not better than the original. If Randall would have posted that today you wouldn't have laughed. It's not XKCD style.
