Any clue about panel 4? Alpha (talk) 22:25, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

It's a WoW/LoR reference. 99.14.216.36 16:09, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
It begins like common notice "Ever notice how men go to the restroom alone, while women go ..." and you would expect it continued with "in pairs" / "in groups", perhaps "in hordes"... and then you get description of "hordes of Orcs" (tongue-in-cheek explanation) --JakubNarebski (talk) 16:34, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

I think it's much more likely that, in the title text, "observational comic" refers to a stand-up comedian who uses observational humor, like Jerry Seinfeld. Comedians are often called comics, and a stand-up comic often travels to different cities in the course of his or her job. More so if the comic in question is successful. I also note that the text refers to "their jokes" rather than "its jokes." -- Greenbandit (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I think M.C. Quine is not about Quine paradox, but Quine (computing) --JakubNarebski (talk) 22:45, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

What does the 'M.C.' bit mean? 141.101.98.222 11:43, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

It's short for Master of Ceremonies, the official host of a staged event or similar performance. 141.101.98.207 12:40, 29 July 2015 (UTC)twilight

I removed the Video Games category tag. It was probably used in relation to the fourth panel (WOW or similar), however hordes of orcs are featured in books, movies, TV and other formats, not just video games. I believe the link is too tenuous, if anyone wants to re-add it, please explain the reasoning. --Pudder (talk) 13:39, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

The last paragraph of the Panel 3 section seems to refer to something that is no longer there.--162.158.134.40 13:27, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

It's referring to the text in that panel of the comic (though it erroneously refers to it as two sentences, where it's actually a single sentence that it's referring to the first and second halves of.141.101.76.16 14:21, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
