Language Log in the funny papers

We often comment on the comics, so it's nice when it comes back the other way. And this is the first daily comic strip that I can recall seeing with a URL in it. Bunny for 1/4/2007:

Here's a clickable link to the cited page, since Language Log URLs "look like they were hit with an ugly-stick", as someone once remarked, and you don't want to have to type it in by hand.

(I can remember the first time I saw a URL in an advertisement on the side of a bus, a decade ago -- that's when I knew that the internet had really arrived.)
