Anyway Jay has now been relegated to the dank prison below the castle of my Comedy Empire so now it is just you and me.
Today's comic is so close to being something easy to deal with. It's so close to just being another pun (a half-decent one, I'll admit) and developer nerd type thing. But right around the second panel, it just turns into some terrible monster and so I have to deal with that too.
"Hey, can you do me without a condom?" What the fuck randall. This is not how human people speak. Not even close. And the proper response is not "OK" but "Holy lord, what did you just say?" I guess they are supposed to be hilariously casual about the matter but still, "do me" ? And then just tacking on the "without a condom" detail? That makes me feel dirty, way more than xkcd usually does.
And even ignoring that there are issues: I'd hope that a funny funny man like Randall could have thought of a funnier (and faster) way to acquire a young child than "doing me without a condom." Sometimes I feel like Randy just forces himself to add sex to his comics just to show that he can, that he isn't tame like Garfield or Blondie.
That said, I made the mistake of reading the newer one - 584 - before I wrote this, and that is so horrible it makes this look a lot better by comparison. I should have waited.
