Talk:2099: Missal of Silos
We need a citation to prove that residents of Cheyenne, Wyoming would rather not be targeted with nuclear weapons? 188.8.131.52 19:06, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
- As no residents have already requested otherwise, let's go ahead and nuke them now. SDSpivey (talk) 19:49, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
- Seriously, though, a sufficiently patriotic American living in Cheyenne, WY may potentially prefer that the relatively unimportant city of his or her residence be nuked instead of the more militarily important Cheyenne Mountain Complex. 184.108.40.206 20:37, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
- I did not laugh at the comic today. However, I startled people around me laughing at the placement of this  in the description. Kudo's to whomever placed it. DanB (talk) 21:32, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Wouldn't it make more sense to create a seperate page to collect all the "xkcd-Wikipedia effect" cases? I'm kinda surprised there isn't one already. Model Rail isn't even the only time that happened. One other example being https://xkcd.com/1485/. 220.127.116.11 11:23, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
The format of this comic is highly similar to the recent comic 2042: Rolle's Theorem, with a title and From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia header, and the first few paragraphs in the article.
The fact that the reference of this comic to fuzzy string matching matches 1031: s/keyboard/leopard/'s reference to regex (comic 1031 also has a Wikipedia page format)
Can we have kind of a 'Meme format' explanation and Randall's fascination with this format?
