explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.
The Black Hat Man seems to have met a person who happens to be wearing not one, but two black hats. Considering Black Hat's attitude (and dangerous behavior), it's likely that Black Hat believes he has found someone to be twice as dangerous as he is, shown by the two hats. With this in mind, Black Hat makes a quick exit.
Title text is just: ...
- [Black Hat is Walking.]
- [Black Hat stops in front of another man with two Black Hats.]
add a comment!
- [After two panels, The Original Black Hat steps backward, shuddering slightly.]
I have a dissenting opinion, I think it's an electrostatics joke, with black hat (who is negative), meets a person of the same charge and more mass, so he is repelled by an electromagnetic field (likes repel)

- I am sure this is a mystic power pushing Black Hat back at the last frame. There must be a film or video game with a powerful man wearing two hats or something similar. I have no idea. --Dgbrt (talk) 19:40, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
I believe it is significant that the black hat has its own black hat. Nobody mentioned this. It's not merely that the gentleman is wearing two hats. This effectively squares the humor level. 220.127.116.11
