XKCD Web Comic #1018: Good Cop, Dadaist Cop (described)

A web comic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.

 

Panel One: Two stick figures, both wearing police caps and one with a ponytail, are looking through a two-way mirror at a suspect in an interrogation room. The suspect is seated in a chair under a hanging light and is wearing handcuffs.

Police officer 1: All right, let’s try good cop, dadaist cop.

Panel Two: The police officer without a ponytail is sitting in a chair, talking to the suspect.

Police Officer 1: Look, you’re a good guy. We can work this out. Hey, lemme get us some coffee.

Panel Three: The two police officers pass each other, the first going out and the second going in. She carries a rolled up paper in her hand.

Panel Four: The police officer thrusts the unrolled paper at the startled subject.

Police Officer 2: See this? It’s Mark Zuckerberg’s mortgage – So why is it written in church latin?

Panel Five: The officer grabs the still seated suspect’s face and shakes it.

Police Officer 2: Why are my bones so small?

Suspect: What’s wrong with you?!

Police Officer 2: What’s wrong with art?
