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”

Cidu Bill on Jan 31st 2014

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

Steamboat Silly

Cidu Bill on Jan 10th 2014

questions_for_god.png

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?

XKCDIBB

Cidu Bill on Oct 20th 2013

Twenty-three people sent me this one Thursday and Friday. Twenty-three people. I think the previous record for any single comic was ten.

reverse_identity_theft.png

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.

Idiot Bill Bickel’s Daughter Has a Dentist Appointment Tomorrow

Guess how I know.

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

Because the Internet’s a distraction when you’re trying to read?

X+1

Cidu Bill on Jun 10th 2013

Morris Keesan submitted this as an LOL, but it’s a CIDU to me:

nomenclature.png
The cartoon title is “Nomenclature” and the metatext is “[shouted, from the field] ‘Aunt Beast hit a pop fly to second! Dive for it, Mrs Whatsit!’”

Have I mentioned lately what an absolute pain in the ass XKCD is to upload as a CIDU?

X

Cidu Bill on Jun 10th 2013

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.”

On Time

Cidu Bill on Apr 25th 2013

time_machines.png

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

By Jove!

Cidu Bill on Apr 23rd 2013

The meta-text, which I doubt explains anything, is “to get more knowledge”

Subways

Cidu Bill on Apr 12th 2013

subways.png

And the metatext is “About one in three North American subway stops are in NYC.”

So?

Formula

Cidu Bill on Mar 12th 2013

And the metatext doesn’t seem to be much help:
Assume r’ refers to the radius of Earth Prime, and r” means radius in inches

LOL Housecleaning

Cidu Bill on Dec 31st 2012

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.

Paradoxes That Made Us Laugh Out Loud

Cidu Bill on Dec 28th 2012

zeno.png

  • 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.)
