The last panel: Sad violin music.

(The next panel: Bird perspective, Ken looking up at the camera, arms stretched out and shouting: "WHYYYYY!?!?!?")

Cool factoid: That pose, when combined with pumping fists up and down is sometimes called, "Milking the sky cow," or, "Milking the drama cow." My personal favourite way to make fun of that kind of ham overacting is to yell, "Khaaaaaaan!" in reference to one of the more egregious examples perpetrated by William Shatner in Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan.

I think he's juuuust restrained enough to hold back on doing that, but honestly if it had been anyone else that probably would have happened

Final panel music, depending on how dramatic you think it should be:
Sad
Big sad
VERY big sad

I bet the large front portal of Ken's castle was named the Tannhäuser Gate...

It's lucky Ken has studied English verse, and memorized well "Ozymandias."

Nobody here is a king though, are they? Or at least I don't think there are any kings here. Perhaps there may be one or two of the slang variety about, but if they're good at it how would we know?

What about the tiny kind crab who was going to live in the castle?

Ken: "Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

Jon: I get it, it was a good sandcastle

This comic is now a tragedy, this is the Dark Timeline

I'm genuinely disappointed in Ken over this one, this is complete failure to embrace the impermanence of the medium. For the others, eh, I know why I like indoor gardening as much as I do. (Partially because it makes good acoustic insulation, I'll admit.)

I'll get right on that, what did I miss? :)

For him, it's more that it was destroyed before he could make it "perfect". He hates the idea of "a work unfinished"

For Ken, this is as bad as what happened to Seymour in Futurama.

There's a lesson to be learned in that melting sand castle, but I'm having too much fun to think about it.

Never look a gift sandcastle in the mouth

Every sandcastle has its day

Another day, another sandcastle

Yeah, I'm stumped too

"Anything that can go wrong will go wrong."
"If at first you don't succeed, try again."
"Life is what happens while we make other plans."

Those are off the top of my head. Need more?
