The 5th Row, 3rd paper, "Wait Wait ... don't speak its name" may refer to the Lovecraftian Eldetr God Hastur, also known as "He Who is Not to be Named." Eldritch was a favorite Lovecraft word used extensively in the Cthulhu Mythos. 74.120.13.132 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Row three, column three should be "Wait wait, dont taze me, bro" 173.245.63.146 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Is there a real kneed for this: (sic) in stories about Granny Weatherwax? I used Google News BEFORE it was clickbait (talk) 06:42, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

I guess it is impossible to find "may refer to" for all 20 headlines? because this comic pretends to be "fixed" thus not all have an explanation. -- 108.162.254.18 08:25, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

"Don't Dissect Me" reminds me of a Stephen King short story, Autopsy Room Four, from the collection Everything's Eventual. Boct1584 (talk) 14:47, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Can we have a table for this? 108.162.245.40 22:44, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

I think that the first one implies that he is the hostage, not the gunman. Anyone else think so? 172.68.174.64 16:48, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
