It's the same joke, set up and punchline... It's just cut out the middle bits.
Sort of like:

Knock knock
Who's there?
Orange you glad I didn't say banana?!?
I don't like Haikus
I think that they're all stupid
Is this ironic?

Except this is a sort of typical IT sort of thing (could not reproduce the error).
Also, the goal is to make things worse.
I approve this comic.
I want to get to a place where I am neither conforming nor rebelling but simply being.

It's surprising how hard it is to draw a stick figure, lying on the ground, head toward the camera, and have it look at all good. That was my third attempt, and the least-awful-looking... this is what that fourth panel looked like on my first try, before I decided those lines looked less like legs of a prone person, and more like antennae on a floating alien head. Even now, it looks like she's floating, with her legs in the air... but it's not going to get any better.

Also, for the record, Source: 584

Alt: The time we spent together was awesome, sex was great and sometimes there was a genuine connection between us, but still all that was shadowed by "what if". Finally there was so much bitterness and doubt, I just couldn't keep it inside me anymore. I'm sorry, I don't really hate you, but the choice I made.
