Another Reason to Adore xkcd

So xkcd is my favourite online comic of all time ever, I love it even more than Penny Arcade. Okay well I love the two in different ways, like one is pumpkin pie and one is raspberry pie and I love both so much but in different ways. Anyway, the creator of xkcd has made this wonderful database of limericks.

Here are some examples of the creative brilliance and staggeringly wonderful minds of the collective out there in the big, wide world. These are pulled directly from the site:

#259 + (396) – [X]
There once was a [person] from [place]
Whose [body part] was [special case].
When [event] would occur,
It would cause [him or her]
To violate [law of time/space].

#286 + (340) – [X]
There once was a buggy AI
Who decided her subject should die.
When the plot was uncovered,
The subjected discovered
That sadly the cake was a lie.

For so much wit and fun, check it out! As my one of my fav Farscape lines says it’s like “electromagnetic candy” for nerds!

    It is so true. Everyone who knows me knows that if I encounter a verison of myself from another reality or the future the first damn thing I’m doing is making out with myself.

    Totally yeah.
