Fuzzy the Fuzzball had to admit it. He was broke. He didn't have a penny left to cover himself in fuzz. He was feeling totally drained. Everything he had ever taken was gone. Fuzzy felt like the very life was being sucked out of him.

He rolled himself into a counselor's office, sat down, and sighed. "I'm no longer fuzzy. But I'm a fuzzball. At least, I was a fuzzball. What am I now if I'm no longer fuzzy?"

The counselor thought for a moment, and replied. "Don't worry. I still can see a fuzzball right here. BECAUSE-"

As he pointed, everything turned very dark and perfectly silent. Fuzzy was never able to hear the end of the sentence.

What was the counselor trying to point out?

Is it that

He was so worried about losing all of his fuzz, that he became a fuss-ball?

I suppose this

Sounds somewhat phonetically similar to fuzzball, possibly...


Using the comment from abl on the main post, and Ln6595 hint to look at the tags I think the answer has something to do with

fuzzball string theory https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuzzball_(string_theory)

So The counsellor sees

Blackhole causing everybody to get sucked into it and immediately die

This is because

a fuzzball is theorized to be the true quantum description of a black hole (from wikipedia)
