[edit] Explanation

The comic refers to "Hungry Bitches", a 2007 scat-fetish pornographic film. The one-minute preview, unofficially nicknamed "2 Girls 1 Cup", is a viral video that became a well-known internet meme. It is therefore not surprising that only the input combination of x=2 and y=1 generates a significant number of search results, being 257 times as frequent as the runner-up "1 Girl 1 Cup".

The title text suggests random numbers, including complex ones, of girls and cups with apparently no search results. The last phrase is a reference to the song The Twelve Days of Christmas. After the publication of this comic, the phrase has been cross-posted at various sites in order to generate search results and prove the statement in the title text wrong.

This page is in the category Sex. I don't see anything about that topic here. Can someone explain? Matchups (talk) 14:49, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

As mentioned here and in the Wikipedia article, 2 Girls 1 Cup is a trailer for a scat-fetish film, and it is at least intended to cause sexual arousal "if you like that sort of thing". Of course, not many people do. Mark Hurd (talk) 16:40, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
There are now 38 million google hits for 5 girls 6 cups. Someone should update the graphic. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
