  1. With the amount of discussion this comic has generated, I'm genuinely curious what people think my actual views on this subject are. Because I feel like a lot of people are picking apart both Emily's and Aegelford's arguments as if they are trying to correct my understanding of the relations between humans and monkeys/eagles and chickens.

  2. “I don’t know what kind of messed-up mutant chickens you have on your world, but here they’re just dumb, delicious birds.”

  3. “Wow, you’re right, I have no idea how to solve this either! I can validate your technological expertise – this problem is beyond even our capabilities!”

  4. Every time I watch a show or a movie with animal characters, everyone’s always making puns about whatever species they are. "Let's go kick some shell!" say the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, even though turtles also have asses. “Let’s go everypony!” say the My Little Ponies even though ponies also have bodies.

  5. This is a comic about monkey's inmonkeyity to monkey.

  6. “Simmons, I’m cutting your salary again! I’ll be needing the extra funds to defend myself against these Poors!”

  7. He's not gesturing at anything, by the way - his subscription to "Advanced Arms Mobility+" expired and now he's stuck in a T-pose until he reactivates his account.

  8. “Wow, you’re right, I have no idea how to solve this either! I can validate your technological expertise – this problem is beyond even our capabilities!”

  9. "Why won't my curated social media bubble show me anything outside my curated social media bubble?!"

  10. "What they won't tell you, is that clouds are just water, but in the air. And you already know how to swim in water. So what is stopping you from reaching those same heights?"

  11. “So the good news is, we’re not conquered by hyper-intelligent AI…”

  12. At the risk of offending 90% of the people I see on this website, I feel like most of the time I hear this sentiment, it's from someone who never really pays attention to the news in the first place.

  13. “So the good news is, we’re not conquered by hyper-intelligent AI…”

  14. “And I thought I was happy, you know, because I would never need to find another flower to drink from. But then I thought, what if there was another flower out there that could make me happier, but I would never find out because I’m not searching anymore? And what if it did make me happier, but the nectar could not last forever? Would the greater joy it brought me outweigh the pain of its loss? Or would the comfort of the forever flower have brought me greater happiness overall?”

  15. Back in my day, everyone agreed it was 2013. Nowadays, everyone's on about it being 2023.

  16. It irks me when people cite Washington's warning against political parties as some sort of prescient knowledge of modern political discourse when he was actually just talking directly to his own contemporaries. He wasn't predicting the future he was saying, "Hey guys, can you stop trying to argue with me and just do what I say?"

  17. I was worried for a moment that xkcd beat me to the punch here, but I actually came out with this one first. This comic was released

  18. Past Me will never learn his lesson if Present Me is always cleaning up his messes.

  19. “This is why you’ll never win against us! No matter how skilled, how smart, or how powerful you become, you will never understand the value of friendship!”

  20. I really find it tiring when people say things like “no one knows how to be introspective anymore” and then ascribe the root of the problem to whatever the newest form of entertainment/technology is. And no matter how many times you quote Aprocryphal Socrates (“the children now love luxury, have bad manners, etc.”) people keep insisting lack of introspection is a modern thing.

  21. There’s a popular saying, “A good compromise leaves both sides unhappy.” But like, that’s the case with bad compromises too, right? This saying isn’t actually saying anything – if one side’s happy and the other one isn’t, it’s not a compromise! The saying is just, “compromise leaves both sides unhappy,” and that’s barely one step away from just defining the word, “compromise.”
