1 Ishmael: Hey, no problem.
2 {Ishmael quickly erects a fence post}
3 Ishmael: First post!
4 Algernon: Okay, now I know why you were so keen to help...

You're either laughing or saying, "What? I don't get it."

I'm not going to bother explaining it for those in the latter category, because it won't be funny and will simply confirm that I and many of the readers of this strip waste too much time on the Internet.

If you want a reference for private research, there is, inevitably, a Wikipedia article for you. If it hasn't been deleted yet for lack of notability (there's a tentative non-notable tag on there now as I type this, four weeks ago). That's how lame the subject of this comic is, really.

2018-02-21 Rerun commentary: And now, this year's top ten posts, courtesy of Bird and Moon - science and nature cartoons by Rosemary Mosco. Who has a book collection coming out soon, which will no doubt be awesome.

Oh, and the Wikipedia page is now simply a redirect to various things titled "First Post" or variants thereof, with a one-line comment about it also being an Internet meme.
