Why I Love XKCD.COM

Of course, if you have to ask…

XKCD.com is one of the best webcomics around.  There are no ongoing characters.  In fact, it’s mostly stick figures. There are no catch phrases, no reoccurring jokes.  But day in and day out this is the site I look most forward to reading.  The humor is sometimes snarky, sometimes subtle, but always brilliant.  Even the alt text jokes (you know those, right?  Let your mouse hover over the comic, and get a free bonus joke!) are outstanding.   It does, though, come with a warning.

“Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).”

How could you not fall in love with that?

With all the buzz last week at the HR Technology Conference around social media, I knew I had to share Wednesday’s comic. It’s below, but go to the site for the full version.  And stay for the rest of the great work there.

Randall Munroe, you’re aces.
