Even if they could reproduce, they shouldn't - regression testing would be nightmarish.

I found the strip really funny even BEFORE noticing the pun.

Matter of fact, the strip might have been even FUNNIER before I noticed the pun. It looked definitely surreal and off-the-wall, a sort of humour I appreciate quite a lot.

Thing is, I can already predict about 90% of the whine-post at the "hurr hurr look at me I hate xkcd and I'm cool" blog; "The flow of the comic is all bad and wrong! The way the girl is sitting on panel 2 is all strange and awful! The number "167801" is too long and ruins the joke! It's a joke involving programmers, and since I'm not a programmer the joke sucks! The punchline is a pun! WHERE'S THE ORIGINALITY, MR. MUNROE????"

I wouldn't recomend this. Saying hello to people on the street by having sex with them tends to get a lot of garbage thrown at a person. :(

It sounds like it should be, but I've never seen it. E.g. at my place of work the label is "Not reproducible defect", and on Launchpad (Ubuntu Bugtracker) the options that fit best with this are "incomplete" and "invalid", possibly "won't fix".

bugs.sun.com uses "Closed, Not Reproducible", and JIRA uses "Cannot Reproduce". I still prefer "WFM" (Bugzilla et al) instead.

Reproducing bugs is important. If you can't reproduce the problem, how can you know for sure if your fix has corrected it?

Personal anecdote time: My daughter was 6 weeks early, in the NICU for 5 weeks 2 days with "Apnea of Prematurity". This is when the brain is not developed enough to remember to breathe all the time, so she stayed on monitors until she went 5 days without forgetting to breathe. There's nothing one can do for this problem except rule out other causes, and wait it out. (They did give her caffeine, of all things, to attempt to stimulate brain development).

The doctors thought we were pretty cool to not be frustrated at the non-determinsticness of "just wait it out". I figured, being in software, I would have just told us to have another baby and see if the same thing happens.

We did have another baby (6 months ago) (for other reasons), he was only 3 weeks early, and did not exhibit this behavior. The original child is now 2 years 8 months old, and the problem has not recurred, so I guess I can consider the issue closed.

What's wrong with that? Are you some kind of prude or something? What is wrong with a man and woman expressing their love for one another? Do you understand how mating works? Do you understand where babies come from? If it weren't for sex none of us would be here. It isn't a ritual of some sort either.

We should live as bonobos and use sex as a greeting hello, and a valediction bye. We shall have an orgy before we eat, before we work, before we sleep, and before we have sex. Because only through the God-given glory of orgasm can we truly experience his Infinite Love for us. Fellatio will become our prayers, and cunnilingus will become our confessions. We will as a species become one, under the great religion of Hot Nasty Boning. And yes, we may die out from the STD/Is, from the herpes, AIDS, and gonnorhea. But at least we will go out the way we were meant to. Covered in each other's funk and moaning to God.
Not cool, not funny, not a good criticism.

Other than your religious proposal, did you notice that I said reproductive sex? There's a difference between sex-for-fun and sex-to-produce-a-child.

But of course you wouldn't notice. You're a 4channer: applying the mind to something other than snark doesn't come easily to your race, does it?

HOW in #*$& do you have almost 2000 posts and not know about sje46 OR the "not cool, not funny, not a good X" joke? I've got... 4? and I know about them?

Anyways... awesome comic. I can say that even though I am not a programmer, I immediately understood what was going on.

Do you realize that at the current rate of human expansion, the human population would reach 11 BILLION by the year 2050? Most of this growth will occur in LDCs, so this will lead to billions starving, as well as increased chances of epidemics, and extinction of many species.

This comic devalues human life and contributes to this overpopulation crisis.

Unless it doesn't, in which case it won't. It will be a miracle if the earth is capable of supporting any life in 100 years time anyway. The problem will solve itself.

BTW, the OP forgot to include the title text.

I come to these threads to find out the title text. (firefox user, havent dl'd the needed extension.) and now at page 3, OP still hasn't been fixed.
it's a bug. i'll live with it.
edit: oh! so it's "can't and shouldn't." perhaps you'll be seeing even less of me now. thanks phlip.

That extension isn't necessary... Firefox users can read the whole title text sans extension since Firefox 3.0, which came out a while ago.

The way I see it, it's actually two independent jokes, both of which are worthy of a comic. :)

1. Arrogant programmer closes bug not because program wasn't broken but because they could not create or find a child to test with. You have to read a fair amount of bug reports to find this funny.
2. The pun "reproduce" as "replicate a bug"/reproduce as "make a baby".

And of course, there's the sex reference.

I don't know where you've been putting it but generally I find they're actually pretty similar.

This is the best strip I've read so far.
The intense wordplay in "could not reproduce" really made me laugh, and the indifference with which she said "could you do me without a condom? We need a young child for something" was just hillarious.
<3 this strip :D

A bit of seriousness.

As a girl, the phrase "can you do me" really bothered me. "Can we do it", on the other hand, is not at all offensive. There are implications that go with someone asking someone else to "do me".

Otherwise, I found "CNR" to be hilarious!

Actually, I didn't find this one very funny. It's like Munroe once read CNR and thought 'Hah! What if 'reproduce' was interpreted another way?' and then working his way backwards came up with the comic. It just feels a little forced and contrived, like making a whole joke out of something that isn't really that funny.

I never really considered that the process of creating a joke should be more important than the joke itself. Also, the punchline itself isn't quite as important as the way it's delivered. That's sort of the essence of humour, isn't it?

For the record, I figured out that sje46 was joking about halfway through reading the post. I didn't need to know that was the same poster responsible for the "not cool, not funny" joke or even make it to that point in the post. I know the drill, "sarcasm doesn't translate well to text" and all, but it's not true: we as a species have been doing it in text for centuries and have elevated it to a fine enough art that at least some people can be trusted to do it well. If you really got through that whole post and thought it was meant to be serious, I think maybe you're just unable to parse English, period.

Panel 2 is fantastic. It reminds me of a competition from high school we referred to as "emotionless sex" - two people stand close together making sexual noises and comments, and whoever smiles/laughs first loses. There's just something funny about the notion of people having sex without the slightest emotion on their faces. Just imagine "pair programming" (pun!) in which the programmers, maybe your boring coworkers, are fucking like it's their job...

Just a wild guess here but possibly "could not reproduce". But for all I know it could be something like "comic's not real".

Don't know if that "devalues human life" or not... but that horrible pun had me cringe painfully for a while.

Anyway, pity there doesn't even seem to be an interesting bug around as an easteregg to the comic and to compensate for the pain...
