I’m a big ole fan of comics on the interwebs and one of my faves is XKCD.
I’m sure all y’all have stumbled across an XKCD comic at one time or another, but for anyone who is completely uninitiated here’s the rundown straight from the horse’s mouth:
“I’m just this guy, you know? I’m a CNU graduate with a degree in physics. Before starting xkcd, I worked on robots at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Virginia. As of June 2007 I live in Massachusetts. In my spare time I climb things, open strange doors, and go to goth clubs dressed as a frat guy so I can stand around and look terribly uncomfortable. At frat parties I do the same thing, but the other way around.”
Basically he’s a super nerd who writes comics about super nerdy things that are also all-kinds of hilarious.
All-kinds, I say!!
Sure, sure….XKCD has the occasional post that references “contradictory axioms,” “squared time resistance,” and/or “Lord of the Rings” and I generally have no idea what’s going on, but the rest of the time it’s bad-to-the-ass.
In fact, here’s one from a few days ago that made me laugh so hard that I’m pretty sure I tinkled in my pants, but just a lil bit. You know, just like a few milliliters or something, nothing that wouldn’t be deemed social acceptable.
Here it be:
Try to tell me that doesn’t sound like an awesome way to spend an afternoon?!
I figure this same logic could be applied to all sorts of “uniform” that can be purchased with ease.
With that thought in mind, if anyone would like to buy me a policeman’s uniform so that I can go ahead and live my dream as a real life version of John McClane in Die Hard, that’d be swell.
Like, you know, really freakin’ swell…
