My thighs have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord?

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 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.


[Cueball singing, Megan at computer]
Cueball: It's the thigh of the tiger
Cueball: When the moon hits your thigh like a big pizza pie, that's amore.
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 ~~~~) Weird how he says "She's" when the lyrics are "You my brown-eyed girl". 16:21, 9 July 2021 (UTC)

My wife and I started riffing on this comic last night with various songs, and ended up laughing too hard to continue. My favorite was from Total Eclipse of the Heart with "Turn around, bright thighs"
