I HAVE been known to interrupt myself, interrupt myself like that, I have. Indeed.

I’m pretty sure that the first time I was actively aware of xkcd was from this now classic, and somewhat profane – you WERE warned – explanation of the First Amendment.


Finally, separated by a common language uses it as well.
