Of course! It was completely most obvious he was being a big ole' jerk.

What is this #010101 people keep taking about? The black pixel values are now #151515.
#010101 is not distinguishable from #000000.

No, they're not. Your browser may do some gamma correction, but the PNG definitely contains #010101 as the value of the black pixels.

Where do you see #151515? Some browser rendering it like that? Firefox renders it as #000000, I had to download the PNG to see the #010101 color value.
I predict that the One True Comic will continue until the end of Time!

Ok just checked in Chrome, Firefox and IE 10:

Chrome: #151515

And you are right. When I download the PNG and view in MS Paint it is #010101

The browsers are rendering differently. In Chrome it's obviously really noticeable.

What can all this mean,

that Time couldn't end so soon
Wait, its been a month??

Seriously though,
I'm really intrigued by this
What will Time bring next?

So Chrome has "spoiled" a surprise that we would have otherwise found had been going on for days when we finally noticed it.

Yeah, well, lucky for me that Papillons don't wear hats. They wouldn't mind some bacon, though.


Wait. What??? How do you mine for bacon? Is there really such a place???

That would be cooler than all the gold mine in the world put together!

Two. I'd change it to

Dove on a wire
between two tall towers strung
utters a high "Coo...."

to make Haiku's1 work

Wire, so I've heard, can
be a one syllable word,

That explains it then since I use Chrome. I didn't even have the book of Aubron up post-coma today. I just sat down at my computer and xkcd.com/1190 was there as it always is and I immediately noticed the difference without comparing. That's when I had to Aubronwood it to double-check.

Nope.

We have a new shade of gray...

My eyes glaze over

anything resembling poetry.

I have to force myself

OK, I am through.
I will stop with the haiku...
Oh shit! I think I'm stuck!


ETA: Nope. Not stuck. Whew...


No, no, no.
Do not stop
on my account.

I will just
have to retrain my brain
to disregard random

line breaks.
