XKCD Web Comic #1013: Wake Up Sheeple (described)

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

Panel One: Drawing of a stick figure yelling through a megaphone.

Person One: Your government has turned against you! Corporations control your every thought.  -  Open your eyes!

Panel Two: Close up of stick figure speaking even more emphatically through megaphone.

Person One: Wake up, sheeple! Wake up, sheeple!  -  Wake up, sheeple!

Panel Three: The stick figure has lowered the megaphone and is listening to an ominous rumble.

Panel Four: A half-sheep/half-man creature rises through the crackling earth, with a resounding ”B-A-A-A-A,” holding aloft a gnarled staff.

Panel Five: Close up on the creature’s inhuman eye.

Creature: Ten thousand years we slumbered…Now we riiiiiiiise! Baaaaaa!

Panel Six: A distraught appearing stick figure with dark hair speaks to the first stick figure.

Off panel: He awoke the sheeple!

Distraught stick figure: Ohgodohgodohgod. Why did you do that?!

Person One: What? But I didn’t–

Off panel: Heaven forgive us!

Off panel: All is lost!

Hover text:  You will be led to judgement like lambs to the slaughter–a simile whose existence, I might add, will not do your species any favors.
