Isn't this Science Girl, and not necessarily "Alice"? Although they could be one and the same, in this comic and all comics? JohnHawkinson (talk) 16:45, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

  • I agree that this is Science Girl, but she could be playing the role of Alice, or alternatively she could be merely visiting the Looking Glass world as Alice also did. -- 17:13, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

I've heard that the nursery rhyme never makes explicit that Humpty is an egg. 18:36, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

It’s my understanding that the original nursery rhyme was a riddle where the question was “What is Humpty Dumpty?” and the answer is “an Egg.” Rylon (talk) 21:51, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
If that is the case, then the riddle is nearly as bad as "Words that end in -gry." OriginalName (talk) 04:08, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

I took this to mean politicians stating false things then equivocating by saying the words they used mean something different from what the traditional meaning the listeners assumed they meant were. Maybe I just watch too much late night TV tho. Djbrasier (talk) 19:44, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

The comic's subject matter is applicable to many things, but that doesn't mean it's about those things. 04:33, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

I think this might be the first time I've seen Randall draw a facial expression in one of his comics. Surely this can't be the only one, right? -- 18:03, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

I wasn't able to finish, I got up to 1516. Here's a list of comics which include expressions by humans. 1, 9, 11, 12, 15, 16, 18, 23, 24, 38, 39, 46, 53, 57, 67, 68, 78, 93, 109, 110, 119, 130, 133, 135, 142, 143, 160, 380, 463, 824, 902. Also 778 if a detailed skull is a facial expression, 1004 if that's Joker's face and not make up, 1256, 1393, if the ghostly afterlife is just a phase of being human and if ghosts have faces. I also have comics that include animals, didn't think that was in the spirit of the question but most of the animals in xkcd have faces.
