#1610: Fire Ants
[Cueball is talking to Hairbun, an advisor, who is sitting behind a desk.]
Cueball: I’m having second thoughts about grad school and could use some advice.
[Same setting as before. The animated advisor talks while gesticulating with her hands.]
Advisor: Consider the fire ant.
Advisor: When there’s a flood, fire ants survive by joining together into giant floating rafts.
[Cueball is just standing there in the next beat-panel.]
[Back to the first setting but in a larger frame.]
Cueball: Wait, what lesson am I supposed to take from that?
Advisor: Ants are so cool!
Cueball: …You’re not big on metaphors, are you.
Advisor: I am big on ants.
