xkcd's warped sense of humor is usually good for a laugh here and there. This one didn't really get me, but I thought it was interesting that they referenced Agricola. Does that mean they are gamers at xkcd?

Considering they are equating playing Agricola to sex, I'd say they are pretty avid gamers. By the way, someone did this exact same joke when the Wii first came out. I can't find the strip, but it is out there.

More players always arrive right after you start the game.

Anyone know if the xkcd creator Randall Munroe is a BGGeek?

The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up. - GKC

What makes it even funnier is this comic about "scheduling" and timing has been posted 4 times on BGG in 2 different forums (2 are now in Gaming Related Comics, the other 2 are still here in General Gaming) over the last 11 hours.

As Sicher said, more players arrive as soon as you start

I've been afraid to check: has the first picture recreating this scene hit GeekMod yet?
