Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.
An unidentified narrator (Randall possibly) explains how he hoped a kid with a balloon in a restaurant would get caught in a ceiling fan and fly up towards it. This looks like it could cause serious injury to the child, hence the title text of how you're a bad person if this is what you sit in restaurants and imagine.

- I watched the scene in the restaurant for a full fifteen minutes hoping this would happen:
- [A kid is holding balloon; Balloon gets caught in ceiling fan; Kid holds on and is pulled up.]
From the wording of the comic, I think this is a reference to a film or a TV show. 126.96.36.199 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

If there's a restaurant scene in that movie, that might be my guess.184.108.40.206 00:40, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
The title text could be a reference to the pilot episode of Firefly where Mal says, "I am a bad man" after tormented Simon for fun. --220.127.116.11 07:25, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
The balloon never goes inside in the movie The Red Balloon
