I found the first two panels basically worthless, the third to be mildly clever, and the last to be far too smug. I usually like meta-humor (see: the meta box on the left panel of this blog). But has xkcd ever done it before? I feel like in many ways it takes itself a little too seriously to do, say, something like this. Not a problem on its own so much, but out of character. Can anyone find anything else like it in the archives?
lots of points to the forumite who wrote "get out of my head! i was just reading a webcomic!"
that is all.
