Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.

I'm tempted to add an Explanation header after the tagline proper, since the following text is clearly written with a subjective tone and is, in fact, an explanation. But on such a short page, that would look weird. - jerodast (talk) 13:18, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Heh sorry bad phrasing. The text after the actual, literal statement of the tagline on this page is in the tone of an "explanation", like you would see on a comic's page. It doesn't sound like the purely objective, wikipedia-style prose that you see on some of the other more general pages. So, I was tempted to add a header to that text calling it "Explanation", to mimic the comic pages' format. But in the end, with such a short page, that would probably hurt more than it helps. - jerodast (talk) 15:14, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
Oh! You wanted to make a section for it. Yes, I think this page is too short for that. Sorry for my confusion, I'm not a morning person. lcarsos_a (talk) 15:25, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
Ah, section, heading, same difference :) I'm too used to the ancient HTML 2.0 model haha. Yes, that is what I meant, and I agree. Really just remarking on the voice used. - jerodast (talk) 15:40, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
