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. Cueball (the researcher) initially claims he's not researching the G-Spot, but then admits he can't find it anyway i.e. he has difficulty making his lover orgasm.

Cueball may be a G-Spot researcher, but not initially wanting to admit it because of the research result, or really is a solar cell researcher, but has not found the G-Spot when having sex with his partner(s).

As mentioned in the Wikipedia article there actually has been such a study, so the BBC report in the title text is quite likely to have actually been heard by Randall.

[edit] Transcript

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:
[Reporters, including Ponytail, stand below a Cueball at a podium.]
Ponytail: Is it true you've been unable to find evidence that the g-spot exists?
Cueball: My research is in solar cells. I think you have the wrong press conference.
[Beat panel.]
[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)
