What does XKCD stand for?

It's not actually an acronym. It's just a word with no phonetic pronunciation -- a treasured and carefully-guarded point in the space of four-character strings.

No one should never explain a joke; the explanation destroys the humor. Nevertheless, it turns out that there is a whole website - a wiki - devoted to explaining xkcd. On the main page, they say, "We have an explanation for all 1595 xkcd comics, and only 23 (1%) are incomplete. Help us finish them!" Here's the page explaining the one about E to the pi minus pi:
