I seriously just don't get this comic. I feel like it must be super obvious and I'm just missing something. Anyone wanna explain? It's bugging me.

To give a serious answer, the end panel is implying that she's tricking him into letting her move in with the promise of more sex, and once she's settled in, she'll trap him in a relationship against his will.

You'd almost think his forum had become hostile to him or something.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.
