Latest comic

Go to this comic explanation

50 ccs
There's been a raccoon accident at an accordion bacchanalia! Double doses!
Title text: There's been a raccoon accident at an accordion bacchanalia! Double doses!

Explanation

Ambox notice.png This explanation may be incomplete or incorrect: This needs further explanation. Even though the sentences are just made up using words with CC they should be explained.

In medicine, "cc" usually means "cubic centimeter", although it should be written cm³ according to the SI system. A cubic centimeter is equal to 1 ml (milliliter), so "50 CCs" usually means 50 ml of a certain medicine. In this case however, the doctor needs to write "hiccup vaccine" 25 times, with both words containing the letter combination "cc", so she needs to write those combination 50 times. There's no vaccine against hiccups.

The title text text refers to a fictional event with four words containing "cc" (raccoon, accident, accordion, bacchanalia), which means she needs to write "cc" 100 times. Referring to the 50 CCs from above, this would be a double dosage.

Transcript
