Snapchat
For obvious reasons, the prize is awarded at a different time of year from the others, while it's still fresh in the committee's memory.
Title text: For obvious reasons, the prize is awarded at a different time of year from the others, while it's still fresh in the committee's memory.

Explanation

Ambox notice.png This explanation may be incomplete or incorrect: Maybe theres more to it. Title text explanation missing.

The Pulitzer Prize is awarded for spectacular writing (there are many categories; see here). Snapchat is a photo-sending app that allows the receiving user to only view the photo (known as a "snap") for a few seconds before it is deleted.

Cueball reads about the prize but then when Megan states the she heard the picture was really good Cueball becomes disappointed becuase he has missed out on the chance to see the prize winning photo due to the temporary nature of Snapchat.

Transcript

[Cueball and Megan standing together. He holds a smartphone in his left hand and looks at it.]
Cueball: Oh, the Pulitzer Prize for Snapchat was just awarded.
Megan: Yeah.
Megan: I hear the photo was really good.
Cueball: Aw, maaaan...

You can read a brief introduction about this wiki at explain xkcd. Feel free to sign up for an account and contribute to the wiki! We need explanations for comics, characters, themes, memes and everything in between. If it is referenced in an xkcd web comic, it should be here.

  • List of all comics contains a complete table of all xkcd comics so far and the corresponding explanations. The red links (like this) are missing explanations. Feel free to help out by creating them!

Rules

Don't be a jerk. There are a lot of comics that don't have set in stone explanations, feel free to put multiple interpretations in the wiki page for each comic.

If you want to talk about a specific comic, use its discussion page.

Please only submit material directly related to—and helping everyone better understand—xkcd... and of course only submit material that can legally be posted (and freely edited.) Off-topic or other inappropriate content is subject to removal or modification at admin discretion, and users posting such are at risk of being blocked.

If you need assistance from an admin, feel free to leave a message on their personal discussion page. The list of admins is here.
