Recursive self-reference

In popular culture

Alert reader Mike Rosoft has drawn my attention to the above revision. In his words, "following the advice of xkcd, people started creating an article 'In popular culture.' With an 'in popular culture' section, of course." This is, of course, in reference to 446: Wood.

The article was so popular with xkcd fans that it eventually had to become fully protected (courtesy of Mike himself). It now redirects to "Popular culture," which is also a target of xkcd-related vandalism.

Mike is a member of the Counter-Vandalism Unit, which only sounds like the Counter-Terrorism Unit.


  1. The irony is that Randall was making fun of the "in popular culture" sections for being banal and useless.

    Seems like the vandalisers didn't get the joke.

  2. Fucking xkcd scum
