To call xkcd a “webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language” is a bit of an understatement. Incredibly popular amongst the geekier internet crowd (myself included!), xkcd is equal parts Garfield and Stephen Hawking with a bit of The New Yorker and some stick figures thrown in. Do yourself a favor and cruise through the archives. And maybe buy a shirt.

So what does this all have to do with a popular advertising campaign for shaving cream?

Today’s xkcd concerns itself with a bit of rhyming on Twitter. And the twitterverse has responded. In a huge way.
