    Re: all about

    He volunteered to take Hammie's sticking plaster off - painfully by the sound of it.

    This is a very unfunny series of cartoons, wowenglish.

    Like all jokes, if you need to have them explained to you, they have failed in their purpose.

    Re: all about

    As far as "I'm all about..." goes, it means that that is his primary interest, or at least it's one of them.

    - My job pays well.
    - Yes, but you work long hours.
    - I do, but it pays well!
    - I know, but you have to work with terrible people.
    - Yes, yes. But I'm very well paid.
    - Don't you care about the other stuff?
    - No. I'm all about the money.

    I'm making it clear that the money is my primary focus or concern. In the cartoon, he is saying that even though his help wasn't requested, he's very interested in volunteering generally. That's why he offered to help.

    I agree it's not terribly funny.

    Oh, it's kind of funny. He wanted to tear off his little brother's bandaid and make him scream.
    I'm all about volunteering... as long as it's something I want to do!
