Title text: 'That was definitely not in my top three wishes.' 'Who said anything about YOUR wishes?'

Explanation

Cueball happens upon a lamp. He rubs said lamp hoping that it is a magic lamp that contains a genie that will grant him 3 wishes. (see: Aladdin - the Disney movie or the fairy tale) The genie only appears after rubbing the lamp. But, after rubbing it, the lamp appears to ejaculate. Cueball puts the lamp down in disgust in the fourth frame and they have the discussion in the title text.

Cueball: That was definitely not in my top three wishes.

Lamp: Who said anything about YOUR wishes?

It was clearly the lamp's hope that someone would happen upon it and think that it was a magic lamp that contained a genie that would grant wishes. Instead the rubbing causes the lamp to ejaculate, which was its goal all along.
