Hi, I had a question about explain xkcd. On incomplete tags for the explanation, they most often say This explanation may be incomplete or incorrect: created by ______ please mention here... On this comic, it says created by Dr Fauci in private. Or the MRNA one, thermal exhaust port. Who creates these names? Do people just make them up, or is there something else going on?

Yep, you can add whatever ____ you want in there 02:30, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

Yes, and Yes No, no, of course there's nothing diabolical going on behind the scenes.
(Check the progressive changes in the edit history for each comic page. It gets created/populated by the resident Bot, including the default Incomplete bit, and then (it has become customary) someone has a good idea for a topical rewording that they think is rather clever. And sometimes further people think they can be even cleverer, while editing or as sole purpose for an edit.)
...aaaand, of course I get edit-conflicted, but I thought this reply was clever enough to add anyway, so why not..? 02:38, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! I looked at the edit thingy and I saw it just says A BOT. RingTailedLemur (talk) 03:23, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
My all time favorite is the one I added on 2150: XKeyboarCD: “Created by a LEOPARD USING AN XKEYBOARCD” 03:50, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
