As usual, this cartoon isn't really very funny at all. Many of the families that need help the most get bombarded with such different ideas for how to move in the right direction that they have trouble moving in any direction at all. So many of the people who are charged with helping those families don't have mechanisms for communicating with each other or a shared set of lenses and end up spinning their wheels in their efforts to help.
