1022: So It Has Come To This
|So It Has Come To This|
Title text: 'Come to what?' 'You. Me. This moment.'
The point is that “So it has come to this.” would be a serious statement in most circumstances. The line “it has come to this” is usually seen on the verge of the climactic confrontation between the villain and his arch rival, or when one character has to unleash their utmost ability etc. But Cueball is saying it about cat food, a relatively trivial problem.
The title-text says what to say if they respond.
- Megan: We ran out of cat food.
- Cueball: So
- Cueball: It has come to this.
- Protip: If you're not sure what to say, try "So it has come to this"--it creates instant dramatic tension and is a valid observation in literally any situation.
- The phrase "So it has come to this" is also said in another xkcd comic.
