Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.
This comic shows Megan riding a dinosaur. It is arguably her first appearance in XKCD.
- [Megan is standing on top of a dinosaur (Brontosaurus?) and holding reins to the dinosaur's head.]
- Megan: Before you talk to me, I should warn you: I am kind of strange

I think you mean an Apatosaurus. See xkcd 636 for the difference.
The comic is funny because she is telling you she is strange but it should have been very ovious that she is strange because while most people travel by car or walking she rides a dinosaur which is not very common. Unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11.
- She could be telling the dinosaur that she's strange. OTOH, since she seems to be riding it, she probably isn't introducing herself to it. gijobarts (talk) 00:56, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

As of 2015 it is now generally accepted that Brontosaurus was a valid genus in its own right, separate and distinct from Apatosaurus. Given that Brontosaurus has long been more popular than Apatosaurus, perhaps the explanation should be updated to stated that Megan(?) is riding a Brontosaurus. 18.104.22.168 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
