More ink time!
I was inspired by one of Sturmtruppen vignettes (ahh, Bonvi was a genius! Did you know?) where two soldiers were talking via radio that there was raining too much and it was being a problem and then they insist that it is a real problem as we see how both poor soldiers are in a small piece of ground where the rest of the land is flooded.
Here the same, the soldier is saying something like "sir! the ink flood is beginning to be a problem!"
