G-Spot
The BBC lead was 'The elusive erogenous zone said to exist in some women may be a myth, say researchers who have hunted for it.' I couldn't read it with a straight face.
Title text: The BBC lead was 'The elusive erogenous zone said to exist in some women may be a myth, say researchers who have hunted for it.' I couldn't read it with a straight face.

[edit] Explanation

The G-Spot is, as the [BBC is quoted] of saying in the title text, an elusive erogenous zone some women claim to have that can be stimulated to enhance their sexual experience.

In this comic, a live press conference has been held due to a peer-reviewed study suggesting the G-Spot may not exist. But the press have entered the wrong meeting where Cueball (the researcher) has performed a study on solar cells. So initially he try to claims he has not been researching the G-Spot. But he also ends up shamefully admitting that he has tried but failed finding it anyway. That is he has had difficulty making his lover orgasm through the use of G-spot stimulation.

In the title text Randall notes that he could not read the lead from the BBC story: The elusive erogenous zone said to exist in some women may be a myth, say researchers who have hunted for it. with a straight face.

[edit] Transcript

[To the left of the main comic there is an explanation text without a frame around it:]
A study published in the journal of sexual medicine suggests that the g-spot may not actually exist.
We go live to the researchers' press conference:
[Two reporters with microphones, Ponytail and a Cueball-like guy, stand below a podium where Cueball stands behind a lectern. Ponytail reach out with her microphone towards Cueball:]
Ponytail: Is it true you've been unable to find evidence that the G-spot exists?
[Zoom in on Cueball and the top of the lectern:]
Cueball: My research is in solar cells. I think you have the wrong press conference.
[Beat panel with the same view as before.]
[Same view but now Cueball hangs his head.]
Cueball: But... yes.

Discussion

Well, obviously nobody searched for it (the hypothetical article, that is), because I very easily found (ahem!) that exactly two days prior to the strip concerned the story at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/8439000.stm was posted. Title of "The G-spot 'doesn't appear to exist', say researchers", intro paragraph of "The elusive erogenous zone said to exist in some women may be a myth, say researchers who have hunted for it.". So that's at least one site that can be shown to exist. As for the other one... 31.111.35.144 00:05, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
