XKCD Web Comic #1095: Crazy Straws (described)

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

















Drawing of two stick figures facing each other, each holding a drink. The figure on the left has a bright green crazy straw in their drink.
Crazy Straw Person: The thing to understand about the plastic crazy straw design world is that there are two main camps: The professionals – designing for established brands – and the hobbyists. The hobbyist mailing lists are full of drama, with friction between the regulars and a splinter group focused on loops…

Caption: Human subcultures are nested fractally. There’s no bottom.
Hover text: The new crowd is heavily shaped by this guy named Eric, who’s basically the Paris Hilton of the amateur plastic crazy straw design world.

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).
