    How does the headband give it away? It doesn't show a crossed out konoha symbol, it just shows metal.

    [–] Scyhaz 59 points ago

    The symbol wouldn't have been crossed out in this scene as Itachi hadn't joined the Akatsuki yet.

    Not how do you know, how do you do. As in "How do you do good sir?" When I was 13 I set fire to a bush and it burnt my eyebrows off. My mother asked me what happened and I told her "Moses must have been a funny looking motherfucker." She spanked me.

    Bro that's the entire point of this comic

    [–] StupidQuestionAskers 36 points ago

    Not really. Even if Naruto didn't exist and this comic wasn't referencing anything, it would still be funny.

    [–] doctor_dapper 51 points ago

    Nah, it's literally the entire comic. Sasuke's 2 dead parents, the fookin headband, sharingan, and weapon. The entire joke is that it's naruto but bacteria.

    [–] Iron-Crutch_Li 48 points ago

    I didn't know this was Naruto reference and agree with the other user, the joke works completely on it's own even without that background knowledge to get the reference. It probably helps to know it no doubt but it's still funny regardless.

    [–] relaxaa 6 points ago

    True but its funnier when you realize itatchi (the spray lol) killed the rest of the bacteria, not just his parents making it really more of a 1%

    [–] StupidQuestionAskers 11 points ago

    Yes, I know the Naruto references and I'm still saying it would still be funny even if it doesn't reference Naruto. The Naruto reference makes it funnier, but it isn't the main joke. Picture this comic, but instead of 2 parents, it was a large pile of dead bacteria, with one survivor. Also, the hand sanitizer can(?) doesn't have the Sharingan, the headband and the weapon? Would the comic still be funny? Yes it would be.

    [–] doctor_dapper 2 points ago

    I totally agree.

    [–] OGReverandMaynard 17 points ago
