Theft of the Magi is the 506th xkcd comic.


In the book, Gift of the Magi, a man wants to buy his wife a set of combs for her long hair as a Christmas gift, but can't afford it. So he sells his gold pocket watch to buy them. He goes home, and on Christmas, finds that his wife cut and sold her hair to pay for a gold chain for his watch. What happens in this comic is similar, except Black Hat and Danish stole the other person's item to better their own, as opposed to trying to buy gifts for the other
