I don't get it.

But it reminds me of this logic joke:
* Nothing is better than eternal happiness.
* However, a sandwich is better than nothing.
* Therefore, a sandwich is better than eternal happiness.

@TobyBartels:
It is simply another attempt to fill the blank.

What happened to all those authors complaining their comics weren't approved (back when the two sites launched)?

#4 Sorceror Fri, 15 Jan 2010 04:23:00
I disagree. Nothing is certainly better than Something.

Perhaps it depends on the relative qualities of Something and Nothing.

We really don't need a comic everyday. Better ones, but more occasionally, is perfectly fine by me.

#8 Sorceror Fri, 15 Jan 2010 07:29:45
Hence: Nothing is better than Something (for low values of Something).

its a hitchiker's guide reference

Nothing is better than Something ==> Something is the best!

Nothing is better than Nothing.
Something is as good as Something Else.

You don't get Something for Nothing/
You can't have freedom for free.

Should I post a Zen joke on here?
I don't think it's good enough.

(Oh, I forgot the description.)
It basically involves a potion of enlightenment and a joke taken from the Angband comic.

#9: Serious? What refernece specifically? Must be the books, because I know them the least well out of all versions (given that there's so little to know about the movie).
#14: So it's a reference to a reference to a reference?

Being nothing is better than being a something in a roomful of monsters. But the monsters are trying to convince Dudley of the opposite, so they can kill him. Neat joke, but I don't think I can vote anonymously.
