Well, to be honest, the original castle kinda-sorta-somewhat resembles the Krak des Chevaliers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krak_des_Chevaliers
), if you ask me (then again having seen it I'm clearly somewhat partial towards it).
Also, I have a growing suspicion that Randall teamed up with Notch, simply wrote an xkcd-renderer for minecraft, and he's just building castles while the comic auto-generates. If at any point a creeper were to waltz into the frame, just remember - I called it...
