It will be funnier in the future. I was just there and we were all laughing really hard.

This is something mediocre cartoonists do--they think of a punchline that might be funny, realize (or maybe they don't realize) that there's no natural way to set it up, and so just write a line like Panel 1, which is weird and doesn't really resemble anything a native speaker of English would say.
