470: The End is Not for a While
|The End is Not for a While|
Title text: I THINK EVERYONE INVOLVED HERE IS CUTE
People show up at protests because they're angry about something and want to use peaceful means or otherwise to affect political change. It's very much a groupthink, "mob" mentality, bringing to mind the credo, "If you're not with us, you're against us."
Hardly anyone goes to a protest because they're happy about the way things are, and thus, someone holding up signs saying how happy he is would, to say the least, be very out of place at a protest.
The title text shows another sign Cueball is carrying.
The title of the comic refers to the oft-seen protest placard "The end is nigh", signifying that person's belief that we live in the end times and it's time to start getting right with (insert religious figure of your choice here).

- Narrator: I get in trouble for showing up contented at protests.
- Sign 1: Things are pretty okay!
- Sign 2: Anyone up for scrabble later?
