My roommate doesn't always read it, because it doesn't tend to get her (well, she does have an MFA in Creative Nonfiction, which is a bit outside its scope), but every once in a while, I make her read it anyway. There are some times when even the artistic types have an XKCD for them.

We inform our cats that they are kitties, yes they are, all the time, but because of that cartoon, it's obvious that we're doing it ironically. So that's okay!

Uh... I think you're the poster child for that one.

Me too! I'd be targeting raccoons, however, not squirrels. I've just put up the bird feeders for the first time in two years, after the raccoons made it pretty much impossible. I've been putting them away at night.

You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!

The feeders or the racoons? :)

Oh my, how I would love to "put away" the raccoons! When the mamma one gave birth in our floor, we called the "friendly trapper" to try to get her and the babies out. He quite apologetically said to me, "If the mother gets aggressive, I might have to shoot her with the pellet gun to protect myself." My thought was "Pellet gun? Don't you have a real one?"

In the really trivial annoyances column: Spellcheck does not know the word "raccoons." Or "spellcheck" either, for that matter. "Raccoon", singular, is ok.

Oh don't do that, you'll just make them mad (http://wavs.unclebubby.com/wav/MOVIES/BlazingSaddles/MAKEMAD.WAV)

My favourite line from any movie. And my standard reply when someone tells me something can't be done (which admittedly confuses visiting tradespeople...)

This one is so me that it's too unsettling to be funny: http://xkcd.com/354/
(By "it" I mean the fact, not the observation.)

The guy in that one is far more calculating and logical about his approach, and actually has formulas worked out. Whereas I'm more like an untrained blindfolded juggler in varying gravity with strangers throwing random objects at me.

Yeah, life's like that.
