Re: 1190: "Time"

There has been talk of GLR's minions watching the OTT, for mustard and such. Does anyone have evidence from outside that he actually uses minions other than his own sweet self? I always assumed xkcd was a very personal project, not a team (other than a web team, perhaps). Anybody know anything? Not...

That's like writing "don't think about cake". Now I cannot think about anything other than cake. But if I were able to think about non-cake it probably would be tasty maple-bacon something.

Since what's being said is shown in these strange characters, then it's from the perspective of the speaker, not Cuegan. I'd like to see this from Cuegan's perspective, i.e., written in English characters to show what is sounds like.
