    I’ve been waiting for somebody else to comment and maybe ‘splain me this… but nobody’s here…. sigh….

    Did the opposing roars of the crowd stir up so much hot air they created a twister that grabbed the blimp and knocked down the helicopter?

    Even if so, I’d think there were two teams. Why are there three cheering sections?

    It must be past my bedtime.

    I believe it’s a Mexican wave that has built up speed

    July 17, 2011: On this day, for the first time Ottodesu explained a Brevity gag to Susansunshine. This was a complete 180 degree turnaround from the usual situation.

    like they said, a wave around the stadium caused a tornado.

    Once you mentioned the panels and the the wave, it made sense. Prior to the explanation, I had no clue what the strip was about. Thanks fellow comic fans.

    So, I figured it out this morning but I was curious as to what others thought. From the remarks here it is clear that there can be too much brevity… Brevity without clarity is tedious, as was today’s strip.

    I think ya need more than 4 pages for the simplest of flip-book animation, let alone a stadium wave turning into a tornado.

    Is THAT what the point is? OK, now it makes at least some sense. Thank you.

    Actually one reason I enjoy Brevity is the challenge. There are plenty of quick gags out there, sometimes here, too…. but Brevity has a different way of thinking, which usually, but not always, matches mine.I didn’t think about the wave cos I’m not very sportsminded. Or OK, at all.

    I thought it was a Tulsa Hurricane v. ISU Cyclone football game gone horribly wrong…
