Is the "aa" in the hovertext intentional? 172.68.132.233 17:12, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

I don't think so Duraludon (talk) 17:34, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

Should we rename Ponytail to Katie? IIRC she has been named such in several comicx 172.68.54.112 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

No we should not! Can you list all these other comics? I cannot remember any? Also it could be Blondie or Megan he names. Megan is our name here on explain xkcd not Randall's. --Kynde (talk) 14:33, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

What I've been able to find online suggests that the Tailhook scandal of 1991 did not involve the removal of a wall between hotel rooms with a chainsaw - that happened at a previous Tailhook convention rather than the 1991 convention marred by the sexual assault scandal. I think it's improper to say this was associated with the Tailhook scandal of 1991. Ianrbibtitlht (talk) 14:15, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

Names like "Ponytail," "Megan," ,"Cueball" "White/Black Hat Guy" etc. date back long before explainxkcd. They were generated in the XKCD forum pages -- I'm not sure how many existed prior to the OneTrueThread. Cellocgw (talk) 16:45, 25 November 2019 (UTC)

Did anyone else mentally follow "Did I do a good job?" with "Do I get to come home?" Mathmannix (talk) 18:18, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
