You may not have noticed the headline in panel two, but it's one of those small details that makes me chuckle.

First, a preface: I'm a "Wired" reader through-and-through. As a magazine, it appeals to all the best parts of my core nerdiness. But when I imagine the vast spectra of Wired readers, I always chuckle when I compare the real Wired headlines to the ones I imagine Wired readers would be most interested in, such as:

"Kissing: What's It Like?"

"Girls: Why Are They So Scary to Talk to in the Cafeteria at my Programming Job?"

"Robots: When Will it be Possible to Marry Them?"

My Doctor: Oo, looks like you're due for a tetanus shot.

Me: OK.

My Doctor: Any preference for what arm I give you the shot in?

Me: Nah, I'm good. Either one is fine.


My Useless Drawing Arm, The Rest of the Day: Curse you, Dave! Curse you a thousand, ancient curses!
