Concerning the Muezzin calling for "submission" instead of prayer - has anyone noticed yet that the arabic word for "submission" is "Islam"? Seems more deliberate than accidental to me.

How is this unpublished? Although only through an app, this comic has still been issued for distribution to the public, therefore, by definition, published. Forrest (talk)14:41, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the great explanation (also by but not just by Forrest). I found the link to it from the explanation for 940, and though we really lacked this page. As I did not know all the info I just called it unpublished. And then I actually hoped that someone would explain this comic, and you all did, and it is a great work. Especially finding out why it is here etc. Thanks :-) And great that it was saved because some of them are really funny --Kynde (talk) 21:06, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

I just wanted to add that the forum post about this comic notes that this comic was accidentally posted by the site admins for xkcd, then later replaced with the current version of the comic, i.e. 940: Oversight. The direct image URL for this comic now points to this image. Thus, the comic was not published through the unofficial xkcd app or anything like that; the more likely scenario is that the app downloaded the comic when it became available and cached it, so when the comic was replaced with 940: Oversight, the app did not update it. 03:58, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Isn't the joke in the first comic that one of the players is holding a tennis racquet and the other a baseball bat? 141.101.66.227 08:07, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
