    Well, he has the Hapsburg chin. Any royals die of hemophilia lately?

    Maybe a general comment on white supremacists (”Too Soon” after the march?), or racists in general who go on about pure blood.

    It’s a joke about genetic inbreeding of royalty, of which the prominent known cases are hundreds of years old (putting jokes about the current Windsor family aside). So the “Too Soon?” is tongue-in-cheek, as the joke is actually about something quite old. Analogous to asking “Too Soon?” after a joke about the Black Plague.

    Comedy = Tragedy + Time
    So, a joke about something tragic that happened recently may offend people who still find it tragic.
    Sometimes comedians riff on this by making the joke anyway (for the benefit of people who have already moved past it). It’s common to follow such a joke with a “too soon?”, particularly if the joke is something that has just happened.

    (insert hurricane joke)

    OK, well, then, you can also get a joke out of something that is really old, by asking “too soon?” because things that are unexpected can be funny, too. “Q: Hot enough for ya, Florida? A: It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.”

    Note that the “untainted by outsiders” implies inbreeding. The alternative to marrying an outsider is marrying a cousin (if not someone even more closely related!).

    What WW said - ‘Too soon’ is a joke, because the joke is anything but timely.

    That noble chin, those flowing locks, the high cheekbones … those eyes, which appear to be trying to escape the face?

    Is there some thing where being wall-eyed is an indication of inbreeding? Because that’s all I have.

    The SMBC creator is red headed and tends to use red headed characters as either personal stand ins or generalized representatives of an unrecognized minority group.

    Or here, a marker of genetic isolation from the surrounding community. Perhaps with other consequences of inbreeding.

    The later Hapsburgs tended toward wide-spaced eyed.

    @4 James Pollock.

    Hurricane jokes are fair game once the AC kicks back in.

    Otto Von Habsburg, last of the line, died relatively recently.

    Charles II, last Habsburg king of Spain, was so disastrously inbred that, genetically speaking, he would have been less so had his parents been siblings. He was like a Bene Gesserit breeding program gone horribly wrong. His inability to procreate led directly to the War of the Spanish Succession.

    @~~Silk (13): A decade ago, and hardly the last of the line. The current head of the house is Karl, who’s had a sketchy career running charities and being a politician for Austria’s far right party. And his son is a Formula 3 racing driver. And there’s plenty more where they came from. Still pretty inbred, too, since they have strict rules about who they’re allowed to marry.

    Last Habsburg ruler. After that, the House of Bourbon has held the throne (when there was a monarch).

    Only nobility can afford a razor. He guessed “too soon.” He should have pretended to be fooled.

    The cartoon may also have a Hapsburg Lip.

    According to Monty Python, the way to spot a king amongst commoners is to identify the one who hasn’t got shit all over him.

    With all the talk of Hapsburg chin/lip/walleyes, let’s not forget Minor Annoyance@2, who I think nailed the ‘Too Soon?’

    Ted from Ft. Laud - but air conditioning works for heat as well as humidity.

    All of this noble’s features: wall-eyes, aquiline nose, Habsburg lip, etc - are associated with real nobles known to be inbred. In fact, he might be based on Charles II. The artist could have made a funnier visual gag by drawing a generically ugly face, but he’s always been a stickler for historical accuracy.

    But, Jen?, does that include the red hair? (Okay, Auburn.)
