I don't get it. 184.66.160.91 07:57, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

It is a pun. Artist's conception can either mean an artist's description of an event where no real photo is available; or the artist's biological conception, meaning the sex that led to his birth. 84.199.78.189 08:02, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Ohhh and Artist's conception, I get it! 184.66.160.91 08:15, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I don't get the "whistler" reference in the title text... anyone? 84.197.94.196 09:21, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

"Whistler's Mother" is a famous American painting by James McNeill Whistler of his own mother. --Aaron of Mpls (talk) 11:39, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Insert heartfelt groan here: -----> [. Groan! ]24.79.11.46 12:15, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I was too busy being grossed out by the prospect that it was the artist who conceived the image of his own conception. Be it Rembrandt or Whistler. Unresolved Oedipus complex, anyone? 220.224.246.97 13:05, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Incidentally there is a great reference to Whistler's Mother in the movie "Sneakers". Dan Akroyd's character makes the reference regarding his blind colleage ("Whistler"). Great movie.

Anyone know what "click" refers to in the title text? Trek7553 (talk) 15:15, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

the "click" because of Cueball working on the PC and not listening to Megan any more. 80.76.68.155 15:38, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
