A comic. Character 1 is: a cute cartoon monster. Character 2 is: a cute cartoon monster. Character 1: Ah, woe is me, alas! Everything is fucked. How did it ever come to this? Character 2: Maybe instead of whingeing you should actually do something about it. Talk to people. Make a plan. Character 1: That won't work. The best lack all conviction! They pretty much just walk around looking confused and staring at their shoes all day. And the worst are full of passionate intensity! Character 2: Yikes, that simply won't do! I hate to be meta about this, but you are never going to be able to solve any problems until you solve the problem of getting people together to figure out how to solve problems. Character 1: Will that work? Character 2: In all honesty I can't remember what I just said. Nevertheless: yes. Yes, it'll work.
