I found this in N's sketchbook:

Using my decoder ring I get:  "Pants break the sound of crying."

As you know from the post Stumpers and Befuddlers, I don't always get what's going on around here, but really, what the hell is this about?  I know the picture is related.

Is that a clam under a wave?  Is it the Earth floating in the sea of creation?  Are those Joseph's technicolor trousers?  Why does the whole thing make me sort of sad?  Is this profound or just a wickedly good non sequitur?

I am still shaking my head at this.  My best guess is that it is a yet-unfinished haiku and this is the middle line.  I hope he finishes it soon because I don't know where he is going with this one.

Curiouser and curiouser...

  1. Maybe he ripped his swim trunks and is sad.

    Perhaps a trip to Walmart is in order...
