XKCD Web Comic #996: Making Things Difficult (described)

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

Some context for the cancer comics:









Panel One:

Caption above panel

Breast Cancer Surgery Follow-Up

Drawing of a stick figure with a ponytail, wearing a white labcoat and a headband reflector, holding a clipboard and talking to another stick figure. The second figure has dark hair, wears an examination gown and is seated on an exam table.

Doctor Figure: You’re looking great! Remove your top so I can check how the incision is healing.

Patient: Nuh-uh

Panel Two: Same scene.

Doctor Figure: *Sigh*- Do we have to do this every time?

Patient: You know the rules.

Panel Three: Close up on Doctor Figure, who now has clipboard under one arm while digging in labcoat pockets.

Doctor Figure: This is so ridiculous…

Panel Four: Similar scene as before, but now the Doctor Figure is holding out a string of pink beads, while the Patient is opening the top of the exam gown.

Doctor Figure: Here.

Patient: Woooo!

Hover text: Favorite mastectomy breast prosthesis idea: a fake boob containing a spare rechargable battery, accessed via a nipple USB port. Complete with a ring of LED charge indicators in the areola!
