Damn, I wanted to make a 'Thats what she said' joke, but you guys took all the best ones. Thanks a lot :(

P.S. I liked the comic. Just the way he holds the pose throughout the last three panels cracks me up.

Maybe it's because it's after midnight (+9.5 UTC, you know).
Maybe it's because I'm rather drunk.

Maybe it's because it's XKCD (blast you, Randall)...


Whatever the cause, as I read through this thread, my brain tagged "That's what SHE said..." onto EVERY. SINGLE. SENTENCE.

... sometimes, it was funny...

Get out of my head, Randall (except in bed)--that's what SHE said!

(I should make this my sig...)

Short of adding a rickroll, did I miss any other forum in-jokes? :D

Doubly funny because of The Eldest's post last week where he used "that's what she said" as a natural part of the conversation.

I'm expecting The Eldest to say "get out of my head, Randall" at any moment.

This reminds me of my ornithology work on the farm ... how many sleepless nights I spent, stroking all those throbbing cocks for money ....

Wait, no it doesn't. Sorry, my mind wandered.

That's what SHE said!

Some people like corny "that's what she said's" that make you groan and infantile humor. It's almost like the humor equivalent of watching a B horror movie.

That being said, your overly serious and condescending post (I don't approve of this thread, sniff!) was the funniest thing in this thread so far, albeit not intentionally.

@ strikinglysara: Hi


Hi! Haha, yeah. I've read the comic for a really long time and have checked out the forums, but never made an account. And nobody had posted the thread by the time I had finished making an account tonight, so I posted the comic! Pretty exciting, I must admit. :)


Enough time passed between the posting of the comic and the posting of the thread for someone to create an account? Inconceivable!

Sometimes I curse my ability to remember each comic >.<

I, too, have this curse. There is a forum I go to and the people play a game of trying to post whatever xkcd comic is relevant to the posts before me as I consistently come up with one for just about anything. They won The Game again today while I was at school. But I made up for it by finding another one to use for something else in that topic.


I just lost twenty dollars and my self respect.

It was enjoyable, I suppose. I'm not a big fan of the repetition, this technique has been used a little too often for it to be really considered as one of the best. All-in-all, disappointing. To be fair, I did chuckle a little bit. The position of the fingers was probably the best part.

I just thought it was really funny. It did take me a little while to remember which comic the comment was on...

I was tempted to say something here like "but I remember all your posts, TheEldest!" but didn't want to creep you out.

Even though it's true. 8)

I've always wondered who this 'she' was.

What if someone's actual name was she? I could see many ways in which her life could be ruined because of it.
