Title text: My pal Emad does this all the time. 'Hey man, which way to the airpart?'
This is the sixth comic in the My Hobby series. His "hobby" in this one is deliberately mispronouncing words while talking. Hobbies in the My Hobby series are generally annoying or weird, but with an element of cleverness. Here, Cueball persists in mispronouncing his words despite the second character's attempt to correct him. Interestingly, when Randall started the xkcd blog in October 2006, 6 weeks after the publication of this comic, he named it "Blag". He has used that name in several other comics, such as 181: Interblag and 239: Blagofaire. Today, if someone visits https://blag.xkcd.com they get redirected to blog.xkcd.com, but the slogat at the top still says "xkcd - The blag of the webcomic".
In the title text, Randall explains that he got the idea for this comic from one of his friends, although it could just be his friend's accent.
