The simplest explanation for the comic is the recipe for nachos. You take some tortilla chips, spread them out on a plate, sprinkle them with grated cheese, and put the plate in the oven until the cheese is melted. As usual with a full bag of snacks, you always end up with that tiny bit left at the bottom of the bag. In this case, it is either leftover grated cheese (left) or tortilla chips (right). So you end up buying another package of the other ingredient to make nachos again.

The lower caption is a play on the words {{w|vicious cycle}}, in which a negative feedback loop reinforces itself (in comparison to a ''virtuous cycle'' in which a positive feedback loop is established.)
