Comic 952: The Trouble With Punchlines

stud finder

[Comic title: Stud Finder; alt text: According to every stud finder I've tried to use, my walls contain a rapidly shifting network of hundreds and hundreds of studs.]

Randy has this problem with punchlines. Usually he writes what we have started calling post-punchline dialog, wherein his characters comment on the punchline after it's happened, really stealing the thunder from the moment by letting it drag on too long. Perhaps in response to this, we get this comic.

So, rather than ending the comic one sentence before the punchline, Randy actually prevents Black Hat Guy from actually delivering the punchline--we are left to assume he was about to offer a Stud Finder Finder (I have been unable to find any cuddlefish who disagree on this premise, unfortunately). But he cuts himself off before he actually delivers the joke.

And then--AND THEN!--he still adds the post-punchline dialog. "Your joke is bad and I want you to shut up," he says to himself, which, I mean. That's what we've been saying to you for years, Randy. It's okay to stop.

  6. The jokes in xkcd are usually so meta why isn't this one very meta?

  7. So nobody else wants to talk about My Little Pony with me? What happened to Timofei?

    ReplyDelete
  8. i like this comic because he knows how to hold a book and i fink its a metaphor for the id and when he says to 'shut up' it really means ego death.

    what do you fink???

    ReplyDelete
  9. i don't think black hat guy ACTUALLY cut himself off

    I think it's ACTUALLY pretty obvious that stud finder guy ACTUALLY interrupted him actually

  15. Black hat guy reads his books holding them diagonally, it seems. Perheps he's holding it that way to be funny. Also, prettiest sofa snowflake. But most important of Randy's expired artistic license: try imagining Black Hat Guy with those proportions standing straight. His legs are fucking huge.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Strictly speaking, that's the right leg:body proportion. To confirm, pull your legs close to you; you'll see that your knees reach your shoulders.

  19. Guys, I have a question. I already asked on /b/ but they were no help, and /adv/ was actually worse (they mean well but they're so fucking stupid). I'm hoping I can get a more thoughtful answer here.

    Let me preface the situation with this: I'm straight. The female form is beautiful and I can only ever imagine myself in a relationship with a woman. I don't find myself attracted to guys at all, and honestly find most other men a bit repulsive. But I sometimes have sex with my male roommate.

    It isn't about who he is, or what he is. It's about the fact that he's available. He's a horny little fag with a lot of experience giving head. And so if I need to get off, I take advantage of that. He'll blow me while I clothes my eyes and imagine that girl who plays Erin on the Office. Sometimes I'll fuck his ass (never the other way around) doggy style. Again it's not because he's male, it's just that his asshole is tight and warm and my cock likes to be in warm, tight places.

    The arrangement suits me and I don't want to give it up. The thing is, the other day I realized that my family has become aware of the situation. A few of my close friends are aware of my "unconventional hetero" status and I guess word got around. Anyway my family is super religious, but I thought it would be cool if I just explained the circumstances. They don't believe me though. They just aren't open to the idea that a straight guy might want to screw a dude every now and again, and my dad is insisting this makes me gay and is pissed about it. Frankly he should be familiar with the concept as he was in both the Navy and prison, which have no shortage of men who screw each other out of sheer convenience. It's a thin difference. Maybe I'm just reminding him of what he used to do and he is uncomfortable or something.

    So, how can I explain to my religious (Catholic) family that I'm not gay? Or should I just say I saw a psychologist and was "cured"? My parents are both morons and might swallow a "homosexuality is just a curable mental disorder" type arguments.

    Thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  20. ...and now it's even worse

    ReplyDelete
  21. How about giving your roommate a reacharound once in a while, you selfish bastard.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @ U Kitten

    I did, once. I figured I'd just pretend it was my own dick and it would be no big deal. By then he'd sucked me off about a dozen times he said I owed him and I couldn't argue.

    But unless you've ever been in my situation, you can't understand how weird it feels. I explained that to him and told him I would understand if he no longer wanted to "help me out". But he says he like giving head and he's a bottom anyway so for him there isn't a downside. I asked him if he was sure and he said yeah, so here we are.

  23. tl;dr version for scott

    Anon is a heterosexual male having regular sex with another man. His family found out and are under the impression that he is gay. How does he make them understand that he isn't?

  25. I thought he was going to offer him a stud.

  26. how did your family find out
    is your boyfriend a gossiping stereotype

    ReplyDelete
  27. @ R
    He isn't my boyfriend, he's a roommate with benefits. I don't know. I asked who told them (like a moron, kind of confirmed it) and they said "everyone knows" which I think basically means they heard it from one of their friends. One of my buddies' mom is friends with my mom so maybe that's it.

    more importantly: why do you give a fuck what your friends and family think of your sex life

    man up and stop asking strangers on the internet for help with your whiny emo bullshit

    if you care what society is going to say then stop doing what you are doing but if you enjoy it too much to stop then stop giving a shit

    you cant have your cake and eat it too you pathetic little fuck

    at least now we know who randalls "wife" is

  29. Why does he have a screw-driver? Does Randy actually put screws into his walls using just a screw-driver? What a man.

    ReplyDelete
  30. hey guys I'm 15 f and just started masturbating fairly recently. Sometimes after I'm done I get really painful cramps. Is this normal?

    ReplyDelete
  31. @ UndercoverCuddlefish

    I don't care about society it is jump important for my family to understand that I am not a homosexual.

    I don't get it who is Randall's wife? Because if you mean me, you're wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  32. An easy way to ensure people don't think you're a homosexual is not to have sex with men.

    I don't want people to think I am a pedophile, therefore I do not have sex with children.

    Unfortunately it's to late for you, so start practicing talking with a lisp.

  36. Just give your father a go with your friend and he'll start to understand. Later you can tell him how you think having sex with his son wouldn't count as incest as long as neither of you are gay.

  37. "Hi guys; I'm an abject failure and no girl will let me touch her, so I have this arrangement where I engage in regular sexual activity with my male roommate. The problem is that now my family thinks I'm gay! Please advise."

  44. @12:25 You sound mad. People with a sense of assurance have no urge to say such things.

    ReplyDelete
  45. @12:49: You're right; nobody ever responds to the internet badasses that slam them with a few well-placed truth-bombs unless they're simply brimming with anger.

    Or, you know, they're simply entertained at what passes for "trolling" these days, and goading tools like you is even easier than starting a debate on a religious forum.

    Get off the ropes, have your coach towel you off, and try responding with something original for once in your life, champ. You're hitting nothing but air right now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This guy's pretty mad. Is he lying to himself as well or just to me? Don't know. Doesn't matter. If he says anything else it will be my ultimate victory.

    ReplyDelete
  47. The forumites don't seem to be enjoying 953. Also, how long before the alt-text mysteriously fixes itself?

    PS I apologize if this gets double or triple posted - this comment box is the spawn of the devil.

    ReplyDelete
  48. "Oh no... oh no! /b/'s Official 2011 Edition of the Internet Troll Handbook doesn't tell me how to respond when 'u mad' doesn't work! I've already repeated it twice, to no avail! Looks like I have no other option! The Last Resort, from page 201, §17.2.3:

    'Refuse to actually respond to what the other person is saying; doing this effectively requires far too much intelligence and wit, and we both know you don't have any of that. Simply copy and paste the following ultimatum: If you respond at all it means I trolled you!'"

    Yeah, you've sure got me pegged, guy. I guess I'm so blinded with rage that I just have to hand this one over to you. Actually, this is exactly what I was talking about earlier; "trolls" these days think any form of attention means they win.

    What you've done here is tantamount to provoking some kid at school, having your ass beaten, your face shoved in the dirt, and your ribcage kicked and shattered. From your new makeshift throne, half-buried in the playground's sandbox, you look up at the kid that just pounded you, through a muddy film of tears and blood, and manage to spit out those final words, "I trolled you," before fading into unconsciousness.

    But hey, enjoy your "victory". Maybe some day when you turn 14 and magically gain the quality of introspection, you can come back and challenge me for my crown again.

  52. If your penis gets hard enough to have sex with a man when it knows it's going to have sex with a man.

    You're gay.

    Just embrace it man.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Look, we've already established this.

    Nobody can troll this site because this site has long since ceased to have any purpose beyond getting angry people together -- there is not topic to distract us from because xkcd commentary rarely takes more than 4-5 posts to sort out before we resort to whatever the fuck else seems entertaining/relevant.

    So if you come here and make people angry, you're not a troll -- WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY.

    And if you come here and fail to make people angry, then you're clearly just Rob posting under a sock puppet account. Go find a mirror and look in it. Go. Now.

  57. Anon 346 is such a gendre fascist! You can be a man having sex with men and identify yourself as straight. Just as you can have the physical attributes of a man and identify yourself as a woman.

  63. So, guys, who'd the Americans here vote for in the '08 election? Fagbama or McFail?

    I bet a lot of you are too hipster to vote for one of the two major parties.

    ReplyDelete
  64. McFail. I wouldn't have voted for either of them, but my Mom convinced me it was my civic duty or something like that, so I chose what I viewed as the lesser of two evils.

    ReplyDelete
  65. 953 is probably the OLDEST computer joke IN THE WORLD!

    I have a variant that I enjoy : "There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand ternary, those who don't, and those who think this is a joke about binary."

    Seriously though, this one is stupid, and would be mildly funny if told to me without PPD and when I'm drunk, but here on a webcomic that someone spends time making, I expected better.

    ReplyDelete
  66. TL;DV

    Would have picked McFail, though.

  67. UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE IS A FORM OF GUBBERMINT COOONTRROOOOOOOOLLLL

    ReplyDelete
  68. Comic 953 (as with every other n-ary "joke") fails in the context of verbal dialogue (which Randall has unfortunately chosen as his vehicle).

    "On a scale of one to ten, how likely is it that this question is using binary?"
    "One, assuming that signifies a probability of zero, since you've just said 'ten,' and that's a less 'round' number in binary notation than 'four.'"

    "On a scale of one to one-zero, how likely is it that this question is using binary?"
    "You've ruined any hope of obscuring the punchline at this point."

    Alternately:
    "On a scale of one to ten, how likely is it that this question is using binary?"
    "Without any data upon which I could base a hypothesis, I can only guess at random. I choose 'four.'"
    "What's a four?"
    "In binary, it would be represented as one-zero-zero. Prepend leading zeroes as you will."

    ReplyDelete
  69. not american but I would have picked obama just to troll the libertarians

    ReplyDelete
  79. This one really annoyed me. Not only does he have the post punchline dialogue going, he cuts off the actual punchline making you think for a few seconds about what the punchline was. "Was he really going to say 'stud finder finder'?" I thought to myself. After 10 seconds, I decided that yes, that was the joke.

    Sorta defeats the purpose of a punchline.

    At least the alt text doesn't tell us that he holds his book that way to make you cringe.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hey, for 953, do you think it's actually Randy being stealthily arrogant?

    "Look at the cuddlefish," Robdall mused to himself. "Those fools think it is a mere binary joke!"

    He stops to consider for a moment just how brilliant he is. Such a joke alone would be hilarious, but this comic- no, this work of ART- takes it even further: the masses who are less intelligent than him would only see the clever delivery, and nothing more.

    "The depth of it is lost on those cuddlefish, for they are not as smart as I and would never understand the complex (yet elegant) solution to the problem posed in the joke." He laughed.

    "If one says 1, then the answer is always correct. If the ever-alluring Megan, the dame of his dreams, the most lust-worthy and desirable girl, with teats overflowing with bountiful milk-"

    He shook his head to expel the indecent thoughts he was having for his beloved. He attempted to resume marveling at his own ingenuity:

    "If- if it is the decimal system that is being used..." He sighed as his mind clouded once more with images of her perfect nipples. "Then 1 denotes not at all likely. A-and if it... if it is the *binary* sys... SYStem," he sputtered.

    Unable to contain himself any longer, he thrust his right hand into his pants and pretended it was Megan's: "It... it means..." His eyes rolled into his ahead.

    "One means it is very likely, a-and thus true!" Robdall ejaculated the words swiftly, nearly as fast as it did for him to climax.

    He glanced at his right hand and nearly wiped the ingenuity off. With a haunting grin, Robdall stood up and went to nurture the Megan surrogate with his nutrition.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Rob, can I request that as the review for 953?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Why would you hang a picture with a screw? A nail is usually more appropriate.

    You don't need to hang the picture on a stud unless it is rather heavy.

    Why does mister-hates-liberal-arts have a framed picture anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  83. @3:29 PM

    The thing is, it isn't. 1 is the lowest number for both systems, meaning 'least likely'.

    ReplyDelete
  84. If that is your biggest problem with my review, then you have some serious fucking issues.

  103. I don't know why you feel the need to sackpuppet me, but it's really immature. I do not have a web comic. I am not talented enough to make one. But that doesn't make me angry at people who are.

  105. @ David M

    I read recently about your condition and you have my condolences. It takes a lot of strength to admit that you're too untalented to draw stick figures along with unfunny comment every couple of days, but you came out and did it. Stay strong brother, we'll find something you can do eventually.

  106. Shut up! I'm actually very talented. I work at an animal shelter and I've helped lots of people unlike you guys, who hate on funny web comics.

  107. I am a successful raptor trainer unlike the rest of you guys (who are we kidding, none of you are female), and I have an unangry direction with my life! You should all join the cause of raptor training, because they are not going to train themselves.

  109. Hahaha at least the thread got a buit funny at the end, thanks Davids.

    @8:38 You're so right: only XKCD fans can do volunteer work or help lots of people. Obviously, people who hate XKCD are incapable of that!

    OBVIOUSLY
