    I kind of want to see what a "Rutabaga sasquatch" looks like.

    This is one of my favorites in a good long time.

    Also, can I add just how many levels of meta this is? "I've even tested this theory in the strip" and "This is Jerry, not Tycho."

    I've been reading PA for fifteen years now and I had to make an account to say that this is one of the best comics in a long while. I love it.

    I wonder if the 4th wall breaking, super meta Deadpool opening this weekend had any influence on the creation of this strip?

    Way to rhyme, which is a total word-nerd thing to do with words.

    I like the way fact this feels more like the older PA art style since in theory the middle panel is a flash back. Also if you like meta strips: https://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2012/04/02/perhaps-too-real

    He's right, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a fantastic game.

    And co-op.

    Ugh, one of those GOTY contenders, waiting for the enhanced edition.

    Look, date math is hard. That's why we built computers to do it for us.

    but a human had to build the computer to do this math.

    what if computers have been calculating dates wrong the entire time

    As a programmer, yes, pretty much.

    Working with dates and times is such a pain in the ass.

    Particularly when you have deal with time zones\leap days\ fucking daylight savings time.

    So we should just switch everything to Unix time?

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.
