There are two very different levels on which I would like to discuss this comic. We will begin with the simpler level, which is the individual comic.
Besides the fact that basically no one outside 4chan has heard of a "Bel Air" (so the joke has an even more limited appeal than usual for xkcd) I liked it, more or less. This is basically what a "Reverse Bel-Air" would look like, I suppose. Perhaps I am getting a little tired of Randall's "internet meme" comics which all take the form "Find an internet meme and make it more so." This, or this, for example. I suspect, though, that given an internet meme he hasn't mocked, I could come up with a similar "but more so" comic. Hear that, commenters? The game is on.
Oh also I don't think a reverse bel air would only work once. Depends on how often people around you sing the fresh prince theme song.
DINOSAUR COMICS INTERLUDE
If T-Rex wanted to talk about relationships at the end there,
I would have said xkcd was copying him. But he didn't. And
this comic maybe predates Bel Airing anyway.
A much better breakup comic.
Also: This seems as good a time as any to remind you about Fresh McCain of Washington.
WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED THAT INTERLUDE. NOW ON TO THE OTHER THING ABOUT THIS COMIC.
Ok here it is - I can't help but notice this is his third comic recently about breaking up. 445 and 449 being the other two (I also can't help but view 458 in this light as well, and, for symbolic reasons, 457 as well...). I hope there is nothing wrong in Randall's life that he wants to talk about.
A Forumite pointed out that there have been no less that 4 relationship comics about a girl named "Megan." They are:
159 - Boy is romantic at Megan
215 - Boy breaks up with Megan
420 - Megan gets married, Boy is sad
439 - Things are "unresolved" with Megan. At least from Boy's point of view.
That last one is perilously close, in time, to 445 and 449. Honestly, when you look at it this way, it does seem to form a sort of story...But I think in the end Randall is not the kind of person who would put up comics so close to his real life. I think he just knows someone named Megan and uses the name a lot.
If we see more sudden sad relationship ending comics, though, we might want to check in and make sure everything is OK.
