I’m not sure of the provenance of this cartoon. An online student of mine at The New School in New York City posted it on the Discussion Board during a unit on discourse and context. It can mean almost anything, I suppose, though I tend to think she meant it to mean that the character in the foreground,  waiting at a table without a talking partner, has no obligation to spell out his thoughts or the context in which they’re embedded.  His “The” was enough.
