The Oatmeal on making things

Here is one panel from The Oatmeal's latest.

In further panels, someone tells The Oatmeal that they hate hipsters and want a comic on the subject.  He brainstorms ("Hipsters: beards, vintage glasses, mustaches, PBR, skinny jeans"), considers making a comic about beards and eventually makes a story about goats "The hipsters of the Pacific Northwest".

The greater point he works to explain is how his job is wonderful.  He doesn't sugarcoat it though.  His final frames discuss the descent into Hell that all youtube comment threads follow.
