[edit] Explanation

Cueball is standing in the middle of a square, which starts warping and slowly wrapping around him, then pulling him apart.

The title text implies that Randall wasn't being very serious about this comic, or perhaps that it was an idea to creatively use parts of the comic nobody thought about. Alternatively, it could mean that Randall found the comic so bizarre, even he couldn't comment on it.

Randall was probably a bit depressed while making this rather luguber comic.

[edit] Transcript

[Cueball stands alone in the centre of the panel. Tendrils from the frame develop and grow in panels 1 and 2, wind round him in panel 3, and finally retreat back to the frame, tearing Cueball apart in panel 4.]

Might be far-fetched, but this one reminded me of meiosis [1]. - XHalt (talk) 08:59, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

It's more the opposite.--Dgbrt (talk) 21:35, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

It reminds me of smoking DMT.

This reminds me of the "Cube" movie series. 21:31, 7 October 2013 (UTC)BK
