One type of joking is to deliberately mispronouncing common words. In this strip he makes it his hobby.
- Wobsite = Website
- Blag = Blog
- Airpart = Airport
- Cueball: Yeah, did you see what he said on his wobsite?
- Man 2: ...his what?
- Cueball: Wobsite.
- Man 2: ... I think you mean "website."
- Cueball: Why don't you write about it in your blag?

The "airpart" could be referencing a Saint Louis accent, rather than intentional mispronunciation. 126.96.36.199 19:48, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that Emad is supposed to refer to Ahmed, and is some sort of joke about Muslim terrorists.GallantChaos (talk) 18:08, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, and it's written Emad because he's deliberately mispronouncing it. 188.8.131.52 02:23, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
No, Emad is the online name of one of Randall's friends, look it up at http://wiki.xkcd.com/irc/Emad_%28Explanation%29

"Don't you mean 'kidneys"

Isn't the whole joke on 'blag' that 'blog' and 'blag' are homonyms according to the wonderful English orthography *unless* one is aware that it is originally portmanteau of words 'web' and 'log' and by convention it is pronounced with 'o', but think for a minute: if one would never have seen nor heard that word ever before, would they not pronounce it something like... blag? 18.104.22.168 23:42, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
No. Examples to disprove: flog, clog, nog, bog, tog, cog, fog, etc. No reason why they would not pronounce blog in the same manner.22.214.171.124 15:27, 3 June 2015 (UTC)
For what it's worth, an Emad is mentioned here 126.96.36.199 01:39, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
