Filler Art
Maybe I should let up on Megatokyo a little?
Title text: Maybe I should let up on Megatokyo a little?


The picture explains itself. There was no time to create a new comic because he was going to the doctor to get his thighs rotated. He drew the basic stick figure as a 'new' character.

What IS thigh rotation? Is this a thing or just another joke on thighs? 18:23, 9 December 2012 (UTC)NariOX

It's just a joke. You can't get your thighs rotated (a parody of getting the tires of your car rotated), at least not in the United States. Smperron (talk)
Given the general topic, and xkcd's penchant for math, "phi" is sometimes used to describe rotation, I believe. I think it is around the vertical axis, at least in some 3D modeling software. It is a stretch, but thigh and phi sound similar. Tryc (talk) 14:22, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I can't tell what's incomplete about the explanation. Someone explain? 20:49, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
