The latest xkcd treats spammers on forums from an ecosystem perspective, in which the problem is the solution. It includes an "F" word, in case that's a problem.

Be sure to hover over the image, and read the alt text as well.

I'm curious how anyone could mistake me for anything other than a nerd...I guess it's tough to see a person's true self online.

What if I halfway understand the math jokes? (I can follow but wouldn't be able to use that math for my own purposes)

|pig| |chicken| sin Θ

maybe not the same caliber as xkcd stuff, but I get a kick out of that joke flopping exactly every time I've ever told it.

Q: what do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountain climber?

A: you can't cross a vector with a scalar.
