The premise is silly; the details absurd. It is humor, and makes no pretenses at anything else. But it is compelling, and tells its tiny story in the most artful and fantastic manner. They are truly masters of their art form.

Read forward from that link seven pages.

I certainly enjoyed it. It is, to quote Futurama's Hedonism Bot, "Deliciously absurd."

There's a story there. Half of it is in the art. It's beautiful.

ETA:

It also helps to really, really like ping pong.

Interesting,

I wish I could draw like that. The art was amazing. The story was eh. The last frame was incredible.

Overall, great artwork.

Probably would make more sense if I knew what the slang term "paint the line" meant. Guessing from context that it means something like hit the ball as close to the boundary as possible without going over the line, I'm kinda like the others... didn't see much story. But maybe I guessed the meaning wrong.
