Title text: It's not going to break the fan, bouncing a rubber ball off the wall isn't going to dent it, and the roof can hold me just fine. You LIED!
This comic is probably best understood when you have (young) kids that explore everything expensive you have in your household. And while they are not breaking the CD tray off the DVD-player, putting gum in your shoes, or flushing your mobile phone down the toilet, you always consider the possibility that they might. So you come up with various reasons along the lines of "You will break it, and pay for it" if they so much as touch these items. This can be frustrating to children, who feel they don't have the freedom to explore.
In the comic, Cueball lets go of these frustrations as he finally owns his own place. He buys an oscillating fan and grabs its head, therefore locking the mechanism that rotates it. As it is safeguarded by a release stub, it will make a clicking sound. So, Cueball comes to the conclusion that his mother's constant yelling as he was near the fan wasn't necessary in the first place.
This shares a theme with 357: Flies
The title text gives more falsehoods that his mother told him: that bouncing a ball against a wall will dent the wall, or that the roof is too weak to hold his weight.
