There was a dude. He was fucked up for some reason. He fell down all the time. One day he fell into a girl and they fell in love in several seconds. Later, she found out that Sir Falls-a-Lot had impregnated her. She found this out when her baby fell away from her, because having fucked up gravity is not only genetic, it's a dominant trait, apparently. The baby falls into the sunset, screaming, and as the end titles come on screen, we wonder - are those final screams the baby as she falls to a life of torture and pain, or from the mother, on losing her child so soon after birth?
Moral of the story: Randall Munroe thinks it only takes like 2 seconds to impregnate someone.
Update: It just occurred to me that Randall missed a great opportunity for a way better pun than "falling for him." In the 21st panel, when the girl says "He knocked me over and tumbled into the distance" what she should have said was "He knocked me over....and up." HA HA HA!
