You'd probably fit in here if you bothered to join. Just to let you know.

Sure.
That doesn't make it funny, though.


Does it have to be?

I understand this, I would just like you to know.

Wait, so is the entire island part of the sea monster's face, or does the island just float there in the ocean?
It really doesn't matter, but i'm confused and the drawing was somewhat ambiguous on the subject.

It may be a silly analogy, but given what's been going on in my marriage recently, I'm still showing it to my husband next time he's being a jerk.

I don't know if it makes any sense to have such an elaborate trap analogy... but given what's been going on in my marriage recently I'm still showing this comic to my husband next time I have to tell him he's being a jerk.

Why would anyone analogize their situation to something so elaborately stupid?

Okay, I didn't understand any of this. But I'm not convinced I care.

Not only is the trap ridiculous, but's relation to the "punchline" is pretty weak.
