I remember that when I drew this one I wanted to make another stick figure sliding down the cave saying that the unidentified object is a slide. Also, the one saying '0wn3d' is, in fact, flipping off the guy dangling from the rope-like object.

I suppose that on a very abstract level, this is a personal take on the blind-men with the elephant story. Each character identifies the object as something different based on either his current situation and/or perspective. The pessimist dangling from the rope tied to it assumes that it must be a knife; the optimist preparing to step on its potentially foot lancingly sharp edge assumes that it is a staircase; the man in the dark sees only a cave; the inquisitive *insert whatever demographic you belong to and therefore associate with intelligence* asks the legitimate question of what this thing is; and finally, the troll in the middle doesn't care what it is, he is safe atop his platform of anonymity and is simply going to enjoy the plight of everyone else.

So what you saying is its neither a staircase or a knife, its a discussion on the internet!
