"... mumble 'I have not choice' while locking yourself in a room with spellbooks? And now there's weird and arcane lights shining under the door!"
From this Sluggy Freelance comic. I suppose an alternative title could be "Poor life choices".
I remember reading Sluggy years ago, and I remember getting bored with its kudzu plot and drifting off in a lack of interest.
Nice to see it can still be funny while having some semblance of character arcs.
And here's another comic from that arc that made me chuckle.
