Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.

In comic 541 (TED Talk), Randall uses a Cueball character to refer to himself. How should this be included in the Wiki? Cited: AWiseGuy (talk) 21:50, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Hrm... I would suppose it would be something along the lines of this "In comic 541, Randall uses Cueball to refer to himeself." (with all of the links and stuff). Which is pretty exactly much what you wrote. That's how I think it should be done.
But where to place it? Seeing as we have very little content as is, just put it at the bottom in the "main" part, and over time it'll fall into place as more content is added, probably.
That's my two [insert monetary value here]s.

Randall needs a proper introduction here. This article should be much more serious — based on the English Wiki.--Dgbrt (talk) 21:25, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

I think Randall would find no higher compliment than to have a wiki article about him full of "citation needed" tags :D --Alcatraz ii (talk) 02:05, 11 October 2014 (UTC)


I'm not suggesting we're at that point right now, but what is the goal for this article to be deemed "complete?" as a bio of living person is rarely going to ever be "complete".

This is the xkcd wiki, so I would argue that if there was going to be a thorough and complete Randall article anywhere, it would be here... so at very least it probably ought to be more thorough than his general wikipedia page... TheHYPO (talk) 15:24, 7 July 2014 (UTC)


Just wondering where Randall's picture went... -- 15:33, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Quaker reference?[edit]

There is no reference for Munroe being a Quaker except a footnote in a joke comic. Additionally, engineering is an, um, /unusual/ career for a parent who is a Quaker. This is likely an attempt from Munroe to generate a case of citogenesis (,, as a small-scale Wikipedia prank. Djbrasier (talk) 17:05, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

It's true, and you got quoted in Slate! 16:04, 24 July 2022 (UTC)

Our Savior[edit]

At some point, someone changed the caption for the picture to say "Our Savior". Whoever you are, congratulations. You got a chuckle out of me. 15:56, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

Wondering if we should add What if? 2 as upcoming[edit]

The title says it all.-- 10:35, 7 September 2022 (UTC)

Absolutely! How about in place of that nag trying to get us to expand 1608: Hoverboard? 03:58, 9 September 2022 (UTC)
