Comic 966: X Knows - Controlled Demolition!

Yeah, yeah, worst backronym ever. Too bad.

Title: Jet Fuel; alt-text: The 'controlled demoliton [sic]' theory was concocted by the government to distract us. '9/11 was an inside job' was an inside job!

Well, this being a "My Hobby" comic, it means that Randall avoids his usual pitfalls of long, convoluted setups and post-punchline dialogue. This being xkcd, it still sucks.

This isn't much of a comic, which means that this won't be much of a review, either. 9/11 jokes are just old now (it happened TEN YEARS AGO), and this one isn't especially funny. It's an okay (if utterly pointless) idea, but that's the best I can say about it.

Sorry I don't have anything else in this review, but I've been starting at the blog editor off an on since I got into work today, and this is the best you're going to get. Maybe next time.


  1. With so little material to work with I took the easy way out when making this edit:

    seriously my confirmation text is "insink"

  2. This strip is basically a (much wordier) alternative to yelling "it was filmed in a sound stage on Mars" to anyone who says the moonlandings were faked.

  3. The problem with this comic is that it stereotypes conspiracy theorists into people who believe all conspiracy theories. That said, it was still a good joke.
