Don’t ask me WTF, and I won’t have to make up some bullshit explaining this. I am leaving this comic open to interpretation. Give it your best shot… the top answer wins the internetz.
Special bonus points if you can fit in important sounding words like sustainable, post-modern interpretation, microcosm, discourse and surreptitious. Double bonus if you use “existential”.
You might want to check out an older comic on Unexpected Rains. Very appropriate in this current weather.
