First | Previous | 2016-01-28 | Next | Latest

Strip by: ncrecc

{Jon is sitting at the usual kitchen table, with his hand on his chin. In the background is an abridged depiction of xkcd's "Time" comic, with Cueball and Megan sitting at a beach}
Jon: I'm a lonely guy
{Cueball is building a large sand castle, which Megan is standing in}
Jon: Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely...
{After a quick Jump Cut, we see the sand castle has grown humongous, with a cut-off platform to the right. Megan and Cueball have left the scene, and Jon is sitting in the exact same pose as the last 2 panels}
Jon: -lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely...

Sorry for the small purple bits. I tried removing them but that made it look too aliased.
