[Quote from [[Randall]]]

"He's fairly upbeat about the situation!"
+
 
+
This comic is mocking the optimism of people in a satirical way. The boy in the barrel has nothing to eat, drink or no way or sustenance. Yet he only wonders 'I wonders where I will go next' Munroe also makes an oblique reference to how we often become so much more optimistic even in our lives

Just to let you know, even before this upatde I was making a comic that needed a bus as public transportation, and since there were no decent shapes to use, I made my own bus from things from the props section. It actually looked pretty real if you play with the colours a bit.Tip: The oranges/cookies/hockey pucks could be used as wheels on a bus!
