So far, so no one has raised the possibility that there was no genie and that this is just an elaborate pick-up line.

Would have been better if he was holding a full size grand piano.

Possibly just more bizarre.

ya, im in the group, though i have heard the joke before, assumed he asked for a small (or 4-6 inch) pianist and was therefore confused as to why she would have been so impressed. Although i had heard it, the 12-inch bit sticks out (numbers, woo) more than the pianist(penis) and genie bit. Therefore, the joke did not immediately come to mind. I agree that some reference of number or specific size should have been mentioned.

All that aside, it was a relatively funny joke and i don't think it is an excessive use of the penis jokes, being a clever reversal about a geek(building models) who had a... fortunate accident

Dude, that joke is so old! I think my dad told it to me, and I'm 39. Props to the guy who's rabbi told it to him!

Would have been better, I think, if he'd specifically mentioned it was a 1:6 scale model. But I did quite like this comic anyway.

But still brilliant once i was in on the joke though :)

Damn! Another comic that I didn't completely get the joke until checking of the forums. I thought I had it right until the last line of the comic. Having never heard the original joke before, I had thought he wished for a "tiny pianist", rather than a 12-inch one.

Successful troll was successful. Or not a troll at all. I think, in a moment of idealism, I'll cling to considering him a troll.

I liked this one, it was an unexpected inversion of a very old joke. I can see where it wouldn't be funny if you've never heard it before.

Yea, I had an interview with him for a project and I asked him a few of his favorite jokes (he likes to crack jokes during Saturday morning services, though usually more PG). This was one of those he told me. I had the whole thing recorded, so what I cut and pasted was how he told the joke, verbatim. He also told a great Superman, Wonderwoman, and the Invisible Man...

I like how he's holding his model at about crotch level in the last panel.
Of course given that they are stick figures, proportion is a little iffy.
The piano does seem a little smaller than I would expect to inspire emphatic interest. I also don't think a 12" pianist would be very comfortable in someone's pocket. Of course, I ain't know much about painos except for what I've seen on the internet, and I'm not great at visuallizing porportions.

Frankly, I'm sick and tired of penis jokes, particularly coming from a comic that was [once] known for witty humor centering around nerdy, or otherwise abnormal, ideas. Penis jokes are the jokes of frat boys and teenagers with their mind perpetually in the gutter, not of adults who should have the capability of determining when a joke isn't funny anymore.

This wasn't a penis joke. It was a joke about penis jokes. It's meta!

Great comic, though I didn't get it until I came here.

On another note though, doesn't anyone else think asking for a twelve-inch penis (or pianist in this case) could be somewhat hazardous? I mean, twelve inches erect is within the bounds of reason (read, pron), but what if the genie thought you meant a penis with a base length of twelve? That could start to cause issues with mobility, not to mention conventional sex. Wouldn't it be safer to ask for say, a seven inch penis? You would be safe either way then.

Thank you for putting it into metric for me.

Meh, bad joke, bad comic. And I'm usually not one to post when I think a comic is bad.

This requires knowledge of a joke, I've never heard of before. And without that joke, the entire comic is dropped on the floor. Otherwise I, like others, would think that the pianist would be a lot smaller than 12 inches to play that piano. Also, pianist/penis, now that's a mighty big hearing error, and certainly not one I heard. So I guess this is another comic only the Americans would understand, since it is somehow my impression that this is an American only joke. But I could be wrong...on the internet.

So to conclude: Meh.

Or both. Judging just by a Totally Scientific* analysis of the forum, at least 1 in 10 people didn't get it. Those who did either had some odd cerebral thing going on, or were full of random knowledge, or thought it through.

So maybe stick guy employs the same tactic to find a worthy mate. He wants someone who will want him for more than just his scholg-gantic wanger-- but who does want that. Sure, he could just go around randomly telling people "I just got a foot-long whipledoodle. Wanna screw?". He'll either get:

a) slapped
b) some desperate gutter-trash who has bought into The Myth

So instead he tells the truth about his story, and lets it be a test. One of four things will happen:

1) The girl won't get the word-play at all. Thank you for coming out, have a nice day.
2) The girl will work though the word-play, assume "tiny pianist" (as many forumers did). She'll voluntarily withdraw, not wanting "that". Again, no loss for him. She just wasn't smart enough.
3) The girl will work through the word-play, get "twelve inch pianist", think he's lying or telling a joke, or won't want one that big, and will leave of her own accord. She was smart enough, but couldn't handle him.
4) As with #4, proving she was smart enough, and can accept him. Mate found.

So for everyone who was going "Oh me yarm that's lame" or "I don't get it"-- you lose out, and there's no "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single foot" for you.

The guy made a tiny piano, or a small piano. He would have asked the genie for a "tiny pianist" or a "small pianist" to play it. That's just common sense. I don't understand why the woman would want to sleep with him for it.

Now, if he had made the world's biggest piano, and asked for a "huge pianist" to play it...

Of course not, and I didn't say it was the only country either. I honestly can't explain to you why, but for some reason this seems to be one of those jokes only really known and told in America.

Given Terry Pratchett alludes to the joke in Jingo (Nobby-as-Beti explaining what jokes he's been telling to Colon), I strongly doubt it's an "American only" joke.

On another note, I don't mind Gbling so much because I am curious as to the response of the mods, so far they have responded amusingly, and last time they promised a rudely shaped turnip.

I only got the joke after reading the explaination here. As I'm Dutch, I never heard that joke before. Still, after it being explained it was a great comic :D

I mean sure, the set-up could've been a lot better (as someone said, it's hard to get dimensions right with stick figures, but the guy could've mentioned the scale of the piano), but I don't see anyone else come up with such clever penis-jokes ;)

By the way, about the discussion if it's an American joke or not: let's just say it's an English culture joke. People that don't have english for a native tongue simply won't get this because most jokes are told when you're young and you're probably not speaking in a second language much yet.

Although I recognized the wordplay almost immediately, the exact wording of the joke did not occur to me until reading the forums. I imagined that he asked for a "tiny pianist." Which made the woman's question in the last panel somewhat... confusing!

Knowledge of the older joke is not necessary to get this one, you know. In fact, it would probably be funnier if you didn't know the other joke and just sat her and thought about this, and it finally comes to you, that all it is is a dirty pun.

He asked for a pianist that could play it. Meaning that he has a lot of pianist control. Meaning that the woman would be very pleased with his pianist.

I got the "12-inch pianist" bit, and was a bit disappointed that the alt text wasn't along the lines of "she's going to be disappointed when she finds out I asked for a tiny pianist instead of specifying a size." But close enough.

Problem is how long "this long" is depends on your screen and font settings. Also fix'd wording.
