I'd put something here, but I'm tired of typing. -boB (talk) 19:25, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

This feels very different from how Randall usually portrays his characters (being too afraid to speak at all at parties or so stressed about introducing themselves right that they miss the other person's name). I wonder if this is the effect of the alcohol or just a different person altogether. --Maple42 (talk) 19:28, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Could also be that character over-correcting, a la xkcd 1796. 20:45, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Possibly just my flawed interpretation, but it seems like this is possibly a depiction of Randall having arguments online. It doesn't seem like his normal irl-party-characterization (this actually reads a little Beret-Guy-esque; also reminds me a bit of Politifact). Cueball has gotten into a few online debates and left the platform, only to return very soon. The title text is referring to Cueball coming up with "good opinions" and then making his own post for them out of nowhere. What do you guys think? 21:50, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

I get absolutely no sense that Cueball is intoxicated at all. I'm not sure where that would come from, other than being at a party; of course, not every party has alcohol and not everybody drinks when they do. Ianrbibtitlht (talk) 22:04, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Removed from the explanation. Seems more like the other Social interactions comics, rather than Cueball being drunk. Herobrine (talk) 06:25, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

At least from my personal experience, it’s hard to get me talking, a la the rest of xkcd, and when I do, this comic happens. “That Guy from the Netherlands” (talk) 12:31, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

This is definitely how I interpreted this. Cueball seems much more likely to be experiencing social anxiety than drunkenness. -- FroggerUnderrated (talk) 16:40, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

I would write something, but I'm afraid that it would be wrong and I'd be judged. 13:03, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
