Sigh
If you're annoying enough, you can get them to respond with an involuntary second sigh and get a rhythm going.
Title text: If you're annoying enough, you can get them to respond with an involuntary second sigh and get a rhythm going.

Explanation

Cueball is mispronouncing the name of the British TV show, that is also currently show in the US, which is DownTON Abbey (emphasis mine). Notice the spelling. I had that same problem with the name of the show for almost a whole year.

LMFAO is a ubiquitous group in the US on radio, TV and even strange commercials with rodents riding in cars with their infectious ear worm, Party Rock Anthem. However, this comic is a reference to another one of their songs, "Sexy And I Know It." The relevant lyrics go something like this:

sigh… girl look at that body
sigh… girl look at that body
sigh… girl look at that body
ah-ah, I work out!

Transcript

[Cueball is standing behind Megan, who's sitting and watching TV.]
Cueball: Hey, is that Downtown Abbey? What town is it in the downtown of, anyway?
Megan: *siiiiiiiigh*
Cueball: --girl look at that body.
We should thank LMFAO for giving us such a great way to respond to exasperated sighs.

    Well I just went to the link just over a month after your comment and once again it requires a sign in. 162.158.62.231 17:28, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

I'm glad to find out that's a song lyric; the idea that Cueball is turned on by Maggie Smith was a little disturbing.173.245.50.174 00:48, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
