Re: 1663: "Garden"

Help, there's a shark in my bird bath! I think it's chasing the flying fish in the stream The shark fin is apparently known, but that flying fish is new, or at least I certainly don't see it listed at http://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php/1663:_Garden/Images.

Re: 1663: "Garden"

I'm not sure what to make of the changes to Hogwarts. Maybe the interactions from all those cairn-incantations manifested as that great big planter on top of a pillar? But then great big planter acquired fauna of the bunny, kitty-cat, and bird variety, flora of the "office furniture" varie...

Not really. Water doesn't need to be very deep to totally obscure any unevenness in the landscape it's flowing over, and the fact that it's flowing tends to suppress any waves.
