I think the joke is he used the memes either doing the stuff on purpose so he could say that, or saying ti without it being true, and his girfriend broke up with him because of it, and/or he had a kid.

And sje, I'm in a.......more complicated we'll say...position, I sympathize.

Get out of my username, Randall!
(yes, mine IS a BTTF reference)

Speaking of memes, if this had been TDWTF they would have done it on a wooden table, and her name would be Paula Bean. Or Irish Girl.

Actually, now that I think of it... does Xzibit actually use the formula "we put an X in your X so you can Y while you Y"? Because I can't see any way that would work in the actual show.

As I understand it, he often uses something like "I heard you like food, so we put a fridge in your car so you can eat while you drive." The take-off being "car in your car so you can drive while you can drive."
"Don't you see?!"

"Get out of my bed, Randall, I'm trying to sleep!"

Your results may vary.

I'll laugh at myself, thanks.

It's rather hard to explain, but I feel that this isn't necessary. Meme crossovers are by no means a new occurrence, and someone using a public stage to flaunt their rendition of it won't sit well with a lot of people.

It's kind of like that company that made a fortune selling lolcats t-shirts. Raising yourself up on the back of 4chan is easy to do.

Speaking of finely grained, I love that he managed to actually mix two memes over top of each other (Yo dawg and mudkips).


I don't know, I wouldn't say that just "sup" qualifies as a meme. Now if it was "the Ronpaul" instead I'd count that (despite it being pretty old at this point).

Is there some kind of equation or measurement of meme density i.e. meme desity = memes total /sentences. Would that become memes sentence^-1? :D (not the other ms^-1) Does that make the comic 5 (maybe 6, i am not quite sure)ms^-1?

i think most people that dont like it dont like it because of the "acciedental babby causes ruiniation of life" thing. You know, you could also imply that she left him for being so meme-dense (or maybe he crushed her with his sudden increase in density, hmm?)

If it makes those people feel better, I'm the only child out of 4 in my family that was planned. And I do believe I'm the only one who didn't get a college fund, (thats what i get for being the youngest i guess).

If you guys expect Randall to water down his jokes for fear of offending people, you are wishing doom upon xkcd. Quick! Desensitize yourself to offensive things! go to http://www.smbc-comics.com .... or 4chan!

Actually, no, I dislike it for the whole memes part. I never found the appeal in them. Most of them aren't funny to begin with, ESPECIALLY all the horrid misspellings, and then get applied to completely inappropriate situations. Worst of all, plenty of people think that replying with only a vaguely fitting catchphrase is a worthwhile contribution ot a discussion. For every reasonably funny use of an internet meme there are twenty bad ones. Clumping bad phrases together won't make a good joke, so this is easily my least favorit strip.

Haha, that comic was genius. Though I can't begin to imagine how readers of xkcd can be upset by (rather crafty) reference to memes... boggles the mind. Yes, memes can be unfunny, but are they in this case? Furthermore, am I the only one who's seen a pattern in sje's pseudo-outraged posts being... possibly jokes? *shrug*
