Comic 1058 - Old-Timers

I was looking for b00bs on YouTube
When I got called a n00b by some rube.
Well, those parents of mine
Conceived me online
So my view is that Y0U are the n00b.

Original comic here.

Still catching up, still somehow four behind. If only we were on that eccentric time system that is coming up in three comics' time, perhaps I would fare better.

Comic 1057 - Klout

I'll stand on street corners and shout:
"If you ever catch me using Klout
(Unless it's to opt
Out, or get alerts stopped)
I implore you to please lay me out."

Comic 1056 - Felidae

OSX has a problem, and that's
That it's shortly to run out of cats.
With th' exception of lynx
Every name that's left stinks
So they'll soon end up looking like prats.

Comic 1055 - Kickstarter

Kickstarter's no longer a cash cow –
It's all got to be much more flash now.
So it'd be great
If you'd all please donate
To help set up a pitch with panache. Ciao!

If your soul and/or body is achin'
And you're findin' it hard to keep fakin'
A positive zing
About everything
Then it's high time you brought home thebacon.

The catch-up begins. More soon.

Limericks on the way!

Hello, readers!

I do apologise for the lack of limericks in the last week. I have been away on holiday, studying some of the more exotic fauna in the torrid zones of the world. Rest assured that I am now returned, and that companion runcible limericks for all of the XKCD comics posted in my absence will appear here very soon.

Until very soon,

Edward "Limerick" Lear

Comic 1053 - Ten Thousand

If someone’s a gap in their knowledge
Don’t sniff “Where did you go to college??”
Why not be a nice chap
and fill in the gap—
There's far more potential for LOL-age.

Comic 1052 - Every Major's Terrible

Philosophy's rigour is puny
But maths is so abstract it's looney.
A baboon could do business
And chem is just fizziness
So what am I doing at uni?

Original comic here.

Really, I ought to continue this to cover everything in the song in the comic. But I'm already late in posting. We'll see...

Comic 1051 - Visited

If your browser history stinks
You can run from the nudges and winks
You can say you were blinded
—You’re really high-minded—
But you can’t hide from those purple links.

Original comic here.

Comic 1050 - Forgot Algebra

Play the sax, make flapjacks, or speak Spanish:
All these talents can happily vanish.
So why make maths the most-
Chosen talent to boast
That, post-school, you've decided to banish?
