Bread product ≠ rabbit - Subject says it all. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Yes, as to the trivia, I find it ridiculous that they might *not* be rabbits, per the diagram and reference to a small one, etc. I would correct this insanity had I more time.

Other Bun comics include 1682 and 1871 - maybe we should start a category? --AnotherAnonymous (talk) 14:58, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

We can just link to the other "bun" comics for now—we can create a category when more pop up. RamenChef (talk) 18:21, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Sure sure, everyone thinks they're harmless, until one picks up a switchblade and an attitude. DevAudio (talk) 15:32, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Is it true that Bun trends are increasing?

The long-awaited game Overgrowth was officially released on Steam today. It has been most succinctly described as a "Bunny Brawler". Coincidence? I think not!

Is the {beep} a reference to the bun alert (which beret guy has installed)? 23:35, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

I guess that {beep} is definitely a reference to the bun alert, and that the "recent acceleration in numbers" is only an observed trend due to more users reporting buns over the app, not an actual increase in numbers. 00:05, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Good morning, Governor. Our tracking systems show a rapid increase in the number of buns featured on xkcd.

There's been a long-term upward trend, but it has accelerated recently.

So if you want to see comics about buns, there are lots of them there!


There's a new one right now!

It's been an honor to comment.

Speaking as an Aussie, an increase in rabbits can cause a major environmental disaster. Be careful of a bun-megadon! Remember that they're not a good thing in environments they didn't evolve in. I think over here in Oz, we actually do get rabbit increase reports. 12:35, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Current incomplete explanation is "Created by Randall Munroe". Seriously? Is this accurate or is somebody goofing around? If true I'd say that makes the explanation automatically complete, LOL! Except I wouldn't want to be the one to remove this special occurance. From the looks of the comments, looks like in previous versions of the explanation someone AGAIN confused this terminology with a bread roll. If only there were previous comics which referred to rabbits as "buns"... :) Or if there was a rabbit IN the comic. Or if someone, like this governor for example, made the connection between rabbits and the term "buns". LOL! NiceGuy1 (talk) 03:35, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Maybe Randall finally found out about the site and somehow contributed... who knows? --JayRulesXKCD what's up? 12:34, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
