The joke is that the man has tricked other people into being attacked by insects. It doesn't really make sense, in that as far as I know, no amount of computer programming can make actual insects fly out of your computer, but what do I know? i'm probably one of them goddamn liberal artists. Anyway, since this comic is not in any way possible, I guess it's just supposed to be completely wacky and also make fans of debian pee themselves in joy.
Also, any random-insect enthusiasts will pee themselves in joy, just like they did with this comic!
Of course, enthusiasts of computers-spewing-things are probably disappointed if they compare this to Abstruse Goose #81.
this comic brings a totally new meaning to "debugging," no? Ha!
I see the search bar is back up on xkcd.com, but it's using Google, not OhNoRobot. I wonder what happened? OhNoRobot wasn't working well for him (though it works for everyone else...). New search seems to be better than the old one, so that's nice.
Do you remember that everything is going to change with my big announcement at comic 800? it is. I guess I'll have to connect my announcement to the comic, somehow. That might be tricky.
