The explanation for this comic may wish to reference this NYT article on Earbud Cartilage Deficiency Syndrome (E.C.D.S.) [1]. I suffer from ECDS myself and hope this comic will bring much needed recognition to the condition. --

I added the description. Feel free to edit it. --JayRulesXKCD what's up? 12:45, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Re. "Megan responds by making fun of Cueball and the stuff that goes on in his head" - I'm not sure it's clear that that's what she's referring to. It could be read as she doesn't know what's going on in normal people's ears. In fact, my first reading of it was that it was a deliberate double meaning - she's making it sound to Cueball as if she's agreeing that there must be something weird about the ears, but privately she's referring to the weird thoughts in his head. 13:08, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
