XKCD Web Comic #1008: Suckville (described)

A webcomic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.


Panel One: A stick figure with dark hair is kneeling, laying out cards on the floor.

Person One: Hah!-Welcome to Suckville-Population: You.

Panel Two: A stick figure sits on the floor facing the first figure, cards laid out on the floor and some in hand.

Person Two: Why are you using 2000 census data?- That’s an old figure.

Panel Three: The two figures are sitting on the floor with the cards between them. The dark haired figure is twisted around to type on a laptop on the floor.

Person One: I couldn’t find Suckville in the 2010 census.

Person Two: Huh? It’s right there in SF-1 Table P1.

Person One: Oh. So it is..

Panel Four: The two figures have turned back to their card game.

Person One: Well, then.  Welcome to Suckville-Population: 83.

Person Two: Much better.
