Transcript

[Ponytails and Cueball sits in office chairs on either side of a desk. Ponytail looks at a piece of paper she is holding in her hand, more papers lie on the table. Cueball sits with his hands in his lap, thinking in a thought bubble before he replies to her remark.]
Ponytail: The sellers offer to drop their price by $10,000 and cover the driveway repairs.
Cueball [thinking]: These are all staggeringly large amounts of money that I have no idea how to even think about, let alone compare.
Cueball [speaking]: Tempting. We'll need a few hours to consider it.
[Caption below the panels:]
Me in any financial negotiation.

You can read a brief introduction about this wiki at explain xkcd. Feel free to sign up for an account and contribute to the wiki! We need explanations for comics, characters, themes, memes and everything in between. If it is referenced in an xkcd web comic, it should be here.

  • List of all comics contains a complete table of all xkcd comics so far and the corresponding explanations. The red links (like this) are missing explanations. Feel free to help out by creating them! Here's how.
