Humor is based on an element of surprise. You laugh because what you encounter is unexpected in some way. There's more to it, as not all that's surprising is laugh-inducing, obviously, but that's the gist of it. Now that you're aware of this, on to the comic. The first three panels provide a buildup: first you see Chen in a situation where she's seemingly under a dilemma. Then the two archetypal symbolic representations of her "good" and "bad" sides appear. With such a buildup, you expect some kind of punchline or resolution in the fourth panel. Yet it never arrives. What you assume are manifestations of Chen's psyche aren't interested in struggling to convince her to make a decision. All your expectations are shattered and you will not get a resolution. You're free to wonder and theorize what was actually happening, but generally you stop upon realization that you have simply been tricked; that's the whole point and there's nothing more to it.

Alright, I'm going to explain in detail why this is comedy gold and you're going to laugh, you got that?

The first panel, the all important set-up. There's some cookies on that there table right? Chen sees that shit and she knows she wants some. You can tell by the way she's peering over the table with that look of desire in her eyes. Her tail is even pointed upwards. But there's a problem, that sign says not to eat those cookies. Chen has some real cognitive dissonance going on now. She's going to need to evaluate herself and the situation to decide what to do.

In the second panel Chen begins listening to her id, represented by a devil Chen. The trident, horns, and bat wings make it obvious. Clearly that little devil must be telling her to give in to her desires, to do what feels good, and just go for it. What's the worst that could happen anyway?

Third panel. That innocent face and halo indicate Chen is now dealing with the ego and superego. Now comes the appeal from her morality. The tension is building as Chen has heard both arguments and must soon make a choice. What will Chen do?

The final panel has arrived. The shocking conclusion, the final act. It all ends here. We see Chen peering over the table once again, now with her evil side doing the same. However, she now has a smug smirk on her face. She's going to eat those fucking cookies, and nothing will stop her. What's more is her supposed good side wants in on the action. This indicates that Chen never had a strong sense of morality at all. This could be referring to her being a cat, or more likely, her childish nature.

Now laugh.

bkub Chen comics aren't funny in a punchline or laughing out loud sense. Usually there isn't a direct and clear joke delivery.

Rather, the entire comic is amusing throughout. While you might not be laughing out loud (I definitely have though at several of his comics), you should feel happy and amused at every panel. It's more of a continuous journey than a set-up and joke. It also plays on the character interactions and previously set-up expectations and views of said character. So the more bkub comics you read, the funnier the next ones read will be.

The whole comic is cute and funny, it should make you feel warm on the inside. Not a burst of laughter. It's different than a lot of modern comedy.

before this turns into a blog, I wanna get back on track. I haven't had any sleep.
I'm just curious as to what people do late at night.
And the life of a NEET is just...alluring.
