Title text: The penis varies in size when flaccid and is pretty consistently about yea big when erect. Anyway, back to the sitcom one-liners and the constant flow of spam.
The comic aims at the obsession with the male sexual organ found in nearly every human culture. In general, depictions of an erect penis (also called phallus) is regarded as a symbol for male potency.
While present in every human civilisation, the symbol of the penis is also prominently featured in modern mass media. Many films and television series make use of penis-related jokes. A very common trope is the resemblance of various objects to an erect penis, eg. in architecture. The title text also refers to the excessive advertisement for potency pills and penis enlargement in spam emails. The symbol of the phallus can be regarded as omnipresent in modern society, with presumably every public toilet sporting at least one badly drawn depiction of a penis.
In the comic, Megan criticises the infantile dealing with the phallus symbol in modern society. In her opinion, there is not much more to be said about penises than how big they are. On the contrary, she supposes excessive preoccupation with penises to hinder cultural progress.

- Now can we PLEASE, as a culture, move on?
