Title text: If only I had asked 4chan for ideas for what I should do to prevent this!
This comic depicts a sex scene with Cueball in bed together with Megan, and a sentence being spoken by Cueball. The sentence's overt meaning suggests Megan doesn't wish to become pregnant, but Cueball has prematurely or unintentionally ejaculated inside her. The sentence contains five popular (at the time) memes:
- Yo Dawg: With the full meme having the form "Yo Dawg, I herd you like (noun X), so I put an (noun X) in your (noun x) so you can (verb y) while you (verb y)", this is the largest meme used in the sentence, and lays out the overall structure of the sentence. The greeting at the beginning can be changed to "Sup Dawg" as in this comic.
- I herd u liek Mudkips: The misspelling of words "herd" (heard) and "liek" (like) come from this meme. While this meme is usually used with Mudkip (a Pokémon), in this case the noun has been replaced by something she didn't like.
- How is babby formed?: The expression "forming babby" (with the misspelling of "baby") comes from this meme. This meme comes from a question that was originally asked on Yahoo! Answers. The full question was "how is babby formed / how girl get pragnent". This meme was also referenced in the title text of 481: Listen to Yourself and in 522: Google Trends.
- I Accidentally: This meme carries the pattern of omitting an important verb, leaving the reader wondering what had happened accidentally. In this case the omitted verb is presumably "came" or "ejaculated". This meme was referenced again in 997: Wait Wait.
- In your base: This references the Starcraft meme "im in ur base, killing ur d00ds." It also might be used for its relation to baseball metaphors for sex, which was also referenced in 540: Base System).
In plain English, the sentence roughly means:
- Hey girl, I heard that you don't want to have a baby but I accidentally came inside you.
The comic then goes to describe the pros and cons of the situation. "Ruined life" is listed as a major downside, as he may have caused a girl to become pregnant against her wishes, and may have to father a child with her. The usage of memes in response to the situation also conveys an uncaring attitude that is likely to put a damper on their relationship even if she did not get pregnant. On the other hand, it is noted that the sentence could set a new record for the density of memes (most memes packed into the fewest number of words) which can be considered a positive. This explains the title of the comic, though it will be a very superficial and meaningless record, especially when weighed against the downsides.
The reason Cueball chose to construct the sentence with so many memes is not clear. Since the comic lists "ruined life" as one of the cons of this scene, it would seem that the accident, as well as the subsequent use of memes, were not planned. It's possible that Cueball had too many memes in his head and couldn't think of anything else to say amid the nervous tension. If this were another character, say Black Hat, then it would be easier to believe that the entire night could have been staged just to give him an opportunity to use the sentence and set a record.
The title text references 4chan, a site known for its memes, trolls and other assorted Internet clutter, and sarcastically implies that any advice they might give would in any way be at all helpful. Due to its population of trolls and other unhelpful sorts, advice given by 4chan would normally be useless at best and actively detrimental at worst; however, the title text implies that Cueball regrets that he did not ask 4chan for advice, and maybe have used them for this earlier.
