Too good not to happen.

I love this epic reference to the ferret in comic 20. Methinks the ferret should feature more often, certainly compared to those creepy red spiders. However, the main reason I made this thread was to complain that the great OhNoRobot considers it to be a "Squirrel with airplane wings and tail". I couldn't see any way to rectify this, and also couldn't find a previous thread about this comic. Anyone with Power able to fix it?

This is one of those great moments in xkcd that I reference in real life (Yes, I am a nerd, and I'm proud of it). The ferret and the barrel kid need to show up more often.

I don't know if it was just me, but I immediately thought of this comic when I saw the comic about Spirit.

I didn't realise until this comic that the kid in the barrel was the writer's own self. I couldn't help but smile when the ferret saved him from drowning... my rats do that for me all the time. :)
The "none of the places I floated had mommies" one sill breaks my heart :'(

An easy favorite. This kind of thing should happen more often.

See this.

Wow, didn't expect the flying ferret from a seemingly irrelevant comic would show up and saved him.
