That was one I totally got from context. :)

What happened to the pictures?

That really was the only way to get this one.

Pictures. I kinda... um... lamed out :( I've been eying a new camera a little and was thinking something like that would...

I don't know. Life.

Ah. I was enjoying them.

I hope it's life in a good way, and not life in a bad way!

Really? Not "ELAN???" or "WHAT???" or even "DAMN!!!" (has he done punctuation substitutions before?)

Oh, it's only context, and deep understanding of the characterization, that makes solving this cryptogram definitively possible.

That and my willingness to state subjective beliefs as absolute objective truth.

Context is a valid consideration in solving any cryptogram. I mean, she could be saying "TOES??" or "MINK??" or "CHEW??" but she's clearly not.

Yes, "ELAN" and "WHAT" are not such non sequiturs as all that, but they're also not funny, and we happen to know that this is a comic.
