Strip by: ncrecc

{Man 1 approaches Man 2. They converse.}
Man 1: Hey man! Watch out!
Man 2: {sanding a table} For what?
{Man 2 has sanded the table down to an abnormally small size.}
Man 1: Watch out you don't oversand your table!
Man 2: {squatted over, continuing to sand} Table?
{Man 2 has sanded the table down to a size small enough as to be outright surreal.}
Man 2: {sat down, continuing to sand} Table??
{Man 2 has sanded the table down to a truly inexplicably small size.}
Man 2: {sat down, continuing to sand} Table???
{Man 2 incessantly sands the table throughout the following four frames, his quizzicality increasing linearly.}
{At last, when the table is reduced to unviewable, Man 2 stops sanding the table. Mouth agape, he directs his gaze to Man 1.}
{He speaks:}
Man 2: {sat down} Table??????????????????

The author writes:

The dialogue for Panels 3-10 is taken from a live transcript of teaching someone unfamiliar with Lua how it implements object-oriented programming.
