Megan and Cueball are sitting quietly, engaged in their own solo pursuits. Without any preamble, Megan answers a question that has not been asked, pointing out to Cueball that he would not be able to obtain milk from her breasts right now, as she is not Template:w. Cueball is flabbergasted that she seems to have read his mind, as this was exactly what he was wondering.

This comic is a comment on the fascination and sheer lack of knowledge that men have about women's bodies in general, and their breasts in particular.

Megan, like any other adult female Template:w, is capable of producing milk from her mammary glands. However, this facility is not always available; Megan would have to get pregnant and give birth to trigger the bodily changes that result in lactation.

The title text indicates that this is not proof of Megan's psychic powers, as Cueball (or is it Randall?) seems quite obsessed by this particular topic.

Psychic and oddly aware of some mad fetishes. Davidy²²[talk] 07:04, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Am I just being pedantic when I note that there is no mention of breastfeeding in the comic? Were I to milk a cow, for example, I would not wish that action to be characterized as breastfeeding. 19:54, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Where are her legs in the third panel? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Perhaps she got uncomfortable with the idea of Cueball's continual sexual perversion, and tucked her legs up into the armchair in an unconscious effort to feel more secure. 23:41, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

I think it is more likely that she is being witty when suggesting Queball is thinking about milking her breasts. Queball gets the witty remark considering he was thinking about her breast in a possibly sexual context and gets amazed she would know he was having that thought right this minute. -- 14:49, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
