    Pinterest is all about sharing interesting ideas. This is a cheap joke about that which would have landed better if there had been any kind of tie-in to pins of some kind in the panel with the diagram.

    I dislike topical humor based on nerdy details of social networks that I have neither knowledge of nor interest in learning about. Today’s XKCD did one, too.

    I really don’t get the throwaway panels. I’ve picked up enough about Pinterest (and Tinder pace Kilby @4) to get the main comic, but the punchline to the throwaways is total mystery.

    I dislike it when people insist on being so conspicuously ignorant of modern technology and media that they assume every reference to such is completely impenetrable to them.

    You don’t have to know any details about Pintrest to get this joke beyond that it’s some thing on the Internet where people post things for other people. It requires no knowledge of technical implementation or jargon or anything else.

    Powers @7

    I agree.

    But I also dislike it when comics and jokes think a mere reference to something trendy existing is obviously laugh out loud hilarious. So far as I can tell here, the joke is “Oh, my God! The cartoonist of B.C. mentioned Pintrest! Pintrest is a thing! I know what that thing is! That’s hilarious!”

    @ Powers (7) - It’s not ignorance, I know (basically) what those sites are used for. What I dislike more about it is a setup that has built-in obsolesence with a rather short half-life. Early B.C. strips were crudely drawn, but the humor had a gentle, timeless quality, and are still worth reading even decades later. This strip won’t be worth anything in ten or twenty years.

    Powers #7: If you don’t know (much) about Pintrest, you also don’t know what you don’t know. When I saw this comic, I assumed there was more to the reference to Pintrest than “people post stuff there.” (Because, as fleabane indicates, if that’s the only purpose of the reference to Pintrest, it’s not much of a joke.)

    Incidentally, is Pintrest a site where people post general ideas or technological designs? I had been under the impression that it was mostly for posting arts and crafts.

    Kilby #9: Jokes are often topical, or specific to current technology or culture. Why single out ones based on social networks for your ire?

    Jeff #12 - But then by one theory, B.C. is not in a pre-historic world, but a post-apocalyptic one. So knowledge of airplanes is gone (or at least the technology doesn’t exist to build one), but somehow Pinterest survived the apocalypse.

    “So cavemen are able to use pinterest”

    You’re assuming that “pinterest” means the same thing to you as it does to them.

    Pinterest Fails are a pretty common meme, where you see the really cute or clever design from Pinterest, and then the disastrous result of a normal person trying to replicate it. It’s done with food pretty often.
    I think the joke here is that you are supposed to think the caveman is inventing flight, but he really got it from Pinterest and it’s just another Pinterest fail.
    Maybe the cave wall is the Caveman’s version of Pinterest?

    ww #10 People post arts/craft/skill stuff on pintrest. And there’s a bit of a perception that there’s a bit of bragging condescension that people post difficult stuff with a casual dismissal “oh, well, of course anyone who *tried* could hand-knit their own coffee-grinders…”. So the joke here is “ha-ha, there was a post on pintrest, that made a flying suit look easier, and now it’s funny ’cause B.C. got hurt and is probably suffering permanent brain damage but … Pintrest is a thing! And I know what it is!” and that is the *ENTIRETY* of the joke.

    @Patrick (6): Spiders already catch flies, but that doesn’t make them think of learning to fly. However, if ants had wings, spiders would catch them like flies, and then discover that ants taste really good, and then decide to catch all ants, regardless of if they had wings, and so now the ants, who don’t have to worry about spiders, would.

    Never mind that ants do have wings, and tear them off after they’re done mating…

    All Pinterest is, along with other similar “Pin” sites is to share images mostly found on other sites. Often the post includes a courtesy link back to the source. Several of my own images have leaked onto Pinterest this way.

    Google or Bing image searches often return results from Pinterest or other “Pin” sites, so Pinterest IMHO is kind of hard to not be aware of these days.

    Pinterest is primarily used for arts and crafts, but also by people collecting images of home decor, or really anything people want to collect images of.
