description for picture in "funny to certain people, maybe"

by Cecily
the two drawings are substantially identical.

they are ink drawings, pretty sketchy.

Two chefs in chef hats are standing next to each other.

One chef is holding a plate of some round things. He says "They're theta rolls"
The other chef (holding nothing) says "no they're not"
The first chef says "you wanna step outside and make this an external argument?"

In the first (original drawing, but posted second) version, the first chef's response is "step outside and we'll make this an external argument". Everything else is the same, except for minor details related to the two chefs' clothing, posture, etc.

it's funny if you know some very specific things about some specific linguistic theories. Otherwise, probably, not so much.
