Do you vacuum until the cord unplugs? The vacuum hum diminishes as the cord pops out of the wall socket. The figure looks surprised and displeased.
Do you vacuum the stairs? A stairwell crams the figure in a tight, improbable choreography with the ungainly vacuum.
Do you vacuum remotely? The Roomba-esque vacuum beeps and boops from its cage between chair legs. The Roomba-esque vacuum pings a message to the figure’s phone that reads, “HELP VACUUM TRAPPED!”
Do you vacuum neurotically? A friend asks the figure, “Are you vacuuming the vacuum?” to which the figure, who is in fact vacuuming the vacuum replies, “It’s dirty!”
Do you vacuum to cover up your singing? The hum of the vacuum, represented as a cacophony of “Rs,” covers up the figure who scream-sings, “NEAR FAR WHERE EVER YOU ARE.” The friends reading on the couch seem not to notice.
The final panel asks, “Do you vacuum at all?” The figure sits cross-legged among hopping dust bunnies.
