Watcher in the Water

Because I like to keep this webcomic G-rated (or, at the worst, PG) I’ll leave the details of this strip vague: either you get it or you don’t.

Some bits of pop culture just saturate the imagination. Tentacles evoke two mental images to most geeky folk: Cthulhu and… something else. (And the something else is pretty well equated with madness as well.) When tentacles reach out and grab your PC it either means something Cthulhoid is about to happen, such as having your brain eaten, or something else which will make madness seem like a blessing.
