358: Loud Party
Title text: I'm glad this is so much fun because I'm not sure how we're getting down.
The comic depicts an average everyday scene - a party, with drinks, dancing, and a lot of commotion going on (hence the title). Amid the chaos, though, there are two people, Megan and Cueball, staring wistfully at each other. They both think of the same scene: the two of them sitting on branches of a large and bare tree, doing something on laptops. The implication is that these two people are special - they don't derive their enjoyment of life from parties or other typical teenage activities, but rather simpler, more quiet activities. This is evidenced by the fact that everything other than Megan and Cueball (and the plastic cups) are greyed out.
The title text presents a simpler joke - it is rather difficult to get down from a tree, especially when carrying a fragile item like a laptop. Or, it could reverse the comic, implying that Megan and Cueball are both in the tree in real life, but partying together in their imagination.
