So many wonderful xkcd stereotypes in this comic. There's a woman (running for president!) who outsmarts a silly man (seriously, can anyone find an example of the other way around? Not counting Mr. and Mrs. Hat; they are always prankin' each other). There's taking computers/the internet and seeing how they are act when you jam them on real life. There's just plain dumb mistakes in the art (ach, that extra long vertical line in panel two looks so fucking bad. )
And most of all, it has shitty, shitty dialog.
How freaking lame is that dialog in the last panel. "I thought one reply was all I needed!" That's not how people talk. That's how a tree talks in a third grade production of "Our Healthy Forests" when the tree is like "I am a tree! It is bad to cut me down." Do you see what I mean? Someone who actually thought you only needed one reply wouldn't say so; he would say "lol TROLLED! bitch" or something like that. Or "FIRST!" or "HITLER believed in political parties dumass" or "if you don't like it, just stop reading it" or something smart like that.
The stupidity of the dialog (from now on i am calling it "I am a tree!" syndrome) reminded me a lot of the youtube audio preview comic. Just...bad, god.
Anyway, I think Jay has some things he'd like to say about this comic so i'ma gonna get out of his way and let him post them.
the xkcd search function sucks as hard as the comic. Perhaps if randall knew about computers he could fix it. perhaps.
i am serious: who can find a comic where a man is smarter / better / nicer / more clever / etc than a woman? I am not sure one exists but will not be reading 661 comics to prove it.
