They once said films were responsible for increased violence and depravity. They once said video games were influencing young people to commit crimes. But now we can say with absolute certainty: Randall can make his fans eat shit if he wants to.

Also, for the record: Randall misused "protip" AGAIN.


while I don't think there's really a proper way to use "protip" since it's supposed to be a joke, I do agree that this comic is just "lol so randum xD"

White Trash Repairs? So; It has come to this.

Wonderful! Strange and dangerous. It has come to this.

Do not try this at home. But; They did.

White Trash Repairs looks like it might be yucks and giggles. Thanks.

I think I've actually done that, but if I did, it may just be a result of my social awkwardness.

Yes, because nobody ever used that phrase before Randall, ever.

This phrase is particularly useful in Tautology Club.

Also, the one the strip is about.

I don't think I've ever heard of Tautology Club.

"So it has come to this" is said by Richard Stallman in 225. (one of my favorites)
And while going through the archives again, 806. The girl has a poster of 'some bearded dude with swords'. lol

I was running out of things to watch on Netflix when I came across this documentary "The Yes Men Fix the World" in which Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno pose as corporate YES men.
Invited to conferences through fake websites, these two speak in the name of the corporations they are assumed to represent.
Hilarity ensues. When their 'con' is exposed, they don't run away - they hang around and give their reasons for the con.
When faced with one particularly pointed accusation, Andy Bichlbaum paused, shook his head, and said "So it has come to this, has it?".
I laughed so hard, I nearly rolled off of the couch. I saw this XKCD comic only two days earlier.

edit to add IMDB entry for the documentary: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1352852/

Was just clicking on random comics and arrived at this one: http://xkcd.com/225/
I was amused.

Found this on Netflix - just shy of 15 minutes in and I seem to be in store for another hour or so of awesome.
