My thighs have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord?
Title text: My thighs have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord?

[edit] Explanation

In each panel, Cueball sings a line from a different song (Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger", Dean Martin's "That's Amore", and Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl"), replacing the word "eye" in each with the word "thigh". The joke seems to be how vastly different each song's meaning becomes when "eye" is replaced with "thigh." It's probable, in the last panel, that Megan's "ewww" refers to the fact that brown thighs would be eminently possible via an act of poor defecation on oneself.

The title text references the first line of The Battle Hymn of the Republic, and is a sex joke, playing on the word coming, which in this case could mean either arrival or ejaculation.

[edit] Transcript

Cueball: She's my brown-thighed girl.
Megan: Don't you have a job or something?
Megan: Also, Eww.

"Also, eww" implies that Megan has taken a scatological interpretation of "brown-thighed girl". JET73L (talk) 12:22, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

The song was originally "Brown-Skinned Girl", so the last panel is even funnier (albeit unintentionally). (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
