Title text: Facebook defines relationships. 'Yeah, we would have broken up last night, but the net connection was down'
It's hard to know when you are in a relationship in modern times. In olden days you might fancy a girl, and then ask her father if you might court her, and if he granted his permission you would be a couple. Today, that kind of structure and formality is terrifyingly antiquated, as a result we don't have any of the straightforward cues.
The joke comes in the last panel. All that Cueball really wants to know is if he can tease all of his Facebook friends by setting his relationship status to "It's complicated" so he seems to have an exciting romantic life.

- Cueball: So is this it? Are we a couple now?
- Megan: I just don't know. I like this. I just... don't know.
- Cueball: Well will you be my "it's complicated" on facebook?
