The Little Geezer

Cidu Bill on Jan 31st 2014

Andréa sent this for the Geezer files. Was this strip well-known enough to justify this was a homage?

Actually, he lost me at ”This is an XKCD with a @#$% metatext that might explain the joke or might ruin the joke or might be totally irrelevent”

But if anybody wants to go to their site and come back and explain this, feel free.

Inkronicity

Speaking of which… can anybody tell me the logic behind printer companies (I’m gesturing rudely at HP here, but this applies to all of them) discontinuing ink cartridges for printers more 3 or 4 years old? The rationale seems to be that the average person doesn’t keep a printer for longer than that, but the companies should do everything they can to encourage you to hold on to your printer: they make their money selling you ink, and make virtually nothing on the printers themselves.

And of course this just promotes… what’s the opposite of “customer loyalty”?

So it’s a lose-lose all the way down the line.

For that matter, why does HP (for example) need to make ink cartridges in dozens of shapes and sizes, when they all perform the exact same function anyway? Again, it seems to me that absolutely nobody benefits from this.

You must be at least 59 to get this cartoon??

Cidu Bill on Jan 28th 2014

I haven’t a clue. Neither do the two people who sent it to me, each of whom is also past 35. Danziger was looking for the Geezer tag, but earned a CIDU instead.

This would make perfect sense to me (though it would be a fairly weak joke) if the waiter weren’t a dog. But he is.

I’m not sure exactly what they’re getting at here, other than a reference to Einstein’s explanation of relativity, but I have a feeling that the afterpanel, the scientist saying “or satisfaction,” deflates rather than enhances the joke.
