Hovertext: “The days of the week are Monday, Arctic, Wellesley, Green, Electra, Synergize, and the Seventh Seal.”

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.

Morris Keesan: hovertext: “What sins could possibly darken the heart of a STEAMBOAT? I asked The Shadow, but he says he only covers men.” I get the Shadow reference (”Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow does.”), but nothing else here. Who the hell is Miss Susie, and what happened to her steamboat?

Twenty-three people sent me this one Thursday and Friday. Twenty-three people. I think the previous record for any single comic was ten.
Metatext: “I asked a few friends whether they’d had this happen, then looked up the popularity of their initials/names over time. Based on those numbers, it looks like there must be at least 750,000 people in the US alone who think ‘Sure, that’s probably my email address’ on a regular basis.”
Some people went back to a related March 25 post and commented there; so instead of making this a new post, I just brought up and re-named the older one.

Guess how I know.
I swear, I could own this guy’s identity in six months if I made half an effort to.

Morris Keesan submitted this as an LOL, but it’s a CIDU to me:
Have I mentioned lately what an absolute pain in the ass XKCD is to upload as a CIDU?

The metatext, or whatever they call it, is “If you see two numbers but they’re both the same and you have to squint to read them, you have synesthesia, colorblindness, diplopia, and myopia.”

The meta-text actually works as a joke on its own: “All time machine systems nominal … T-minus ten … eleven …”

Going through my mess of a hard drive, I came across a ton of LOLs I might or might not have posted here; so I’m going to just post all of them and then delete them from my computer and start fresh. I figure even if only a third of them are really “new,” that’s still going make a pretty good collection.

- Morris Keesan: hovertext: The prosecution calls Gottfried Leibniz.
(In case this is a CYDU: Zeno’s paradox says that you can never get from point A to point B, because first you have to go halfway, and then you have to go half of the remaining distance, etc. Leibniz was one of the inventors of calculus, which effectively answers and explains away Zeno’s paradox.)
