The comic provides alternate lyrics to the chorus of the 1975 song [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/50_ways "50 Ways to leave your lover"] ([http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5--Sje98jI Video]) by American artist [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Simon Paul Simon]. Both the original and alternate lyrics provide a textical hook because the firstname at the end of the line is rhymed with the forelast word of the line (back/Jack, plan/Stan, go/Joe).

[[Randall]], we learn from the image text, heard Simon's song during a 70's hit marathon, went to sleep, and while being sleepy replaced "lover" by "hover" while writing the title of the song. Clearly, this amuzed him so much he decided to create a comic where people learn how to hover, rather then leaving their lover.
