XKCD Web Comic #1059: Bel-Air (described)

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


Panel One: Drawing of a stick figure sitting in a comfy chair and watching television.

Television: Well, my posh Bel-Air life took a turn for the worse.

Panel Two: Same as Panel One.

Television: It’s a story best related in a doggerel verse.

Panel Three: Same as Panel One.

Television: So kick back, relax, and lemme put on some Adele for ya,

Panel Four: Same as Panel One, except the stick figure is using the remote.

Television: While I tell you why I’m running for Mayor of Phila–click (the figure has turned off the television).

Hover text: Aaron Sorkin has been tapped to write the TV movie about the aging prince’s eventual election to Pat Toomey’s Senate seat, currently titled either “FRESHman Senator”or “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”


Warning: This comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).
