Exterminating Humanity

What? You mean we owe our entire continued existence to procrastination? I guess that's an idea I can get behind. At least it explains the Fermi paradox. This is the latest comic from Zach Weinersmith at Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

I've never heard of "last panel syndrome," but it made me think about so many jokes I've told. It depends on the audience.

If you're telling a joke to someone who's attuned to your humor and is pretty intelligent, you don't even need a punchline. They can intuit it. My family is like that when we get together. For most audiences, you need the punch line. For certain people, you have to explain the joke even after the punch line, but then they'll laugh.

Good comic, and an excellent example of "Last Panel Syndrome."

Is the last panel necessary? Would the comic have the same impact if it were not there? Would the joke have been better if it were left blank?
