Hmmmm… the astronomer in today’s xkcd comic looks familiar, even as a stick figure.

At least he didn’t draw me as a zombie. But I’m no Feynman.

And hey, together with SMBC I think this makes me king of the four-letter comics. I mean, um. Well.

[N.B. And yes, it really is me, I got word from The Man himself. Funny how a minimalist drawing with some context invokes recognition; I’ve been getting notes from people all morning.]
