It Begins:

Oscar apologizes!

Did it work? :-) --Kynde (talk) 08:50, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

This brings the question how often would comment "It Begins" be labeled as offensive, for example racist or something ... and, unfortunately, that already begun years ago. -- Hkmaly (talk) 11:48, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

It has been quite a while since the last Protip, except for the pyramid pro tip in 1608: Hoverboard, it is almost 100 comics since the last real protip comic: 1565: Back Seat. --Kynde (talk) 09:08, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

This makes me think of the beginning of The Birds. I do not know if it is intended. -- InviPinkUnicorn (talk) 11:44, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

I think it unmistakably is a reference to the Hitchcock film, especially given the specific choice of seagulls. I changed the explanation, but left the other possibilities in. Miamiclay (talk) 22:03, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

The bird's behavior is pretty normal, gulls break clam shells and such by dropping them on to the beach. Maybe it was a clam shell phone? 15:21, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

In my opinion the explanation is missing one important use of "It begins": fearmongering. I follow a far-right website just to keep oriented (and sometimes entertained) about far-right political views, and the guy who runs the site typically runs at least one story a week with the title starting with "It begins:". Some examples: "It Begins… Obama Plays Race Card Against Trump – Attacks White Working Class", "It Begins… Obama’s HUD Launches Civil Rights Investigation on IL Town for Not Building Public Housing", "It Begins… Democrat Lawmaker Proposes $100 Tax on Every Gun", "It Begins… Outraged Flea Market Shopper Calls Cops Over Confederate Memorabilia", etc. etc. --RenniePet (talk) 20:12, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Missing reference?
