The Invisible Life of Poet #88 - Rock Awesomeness

Today I need your help. This week's strip, for the first time ever, contains a special alternate punchline. First read this week's strip, then check out the alternate final frame. To pick your favorite ending, leave me a comment.

[Spoiler alert! Read the strip and the alt ending before you read on]
Many of you will clearly prefer the alternate punchline to the published one. I prefer the alternate as well. My reasoning for chosing the one I did to be printed is threefold: first, and most importantly, I wasn't entirely sure if my publishers would have wanted to print it. Second, teabagging is a very "in" joke right now, and I try not to be too trendy with my humor. The more general "genitals" will still be understandable to everyone twenty years from now. Third, while people aged 15-30 probably mostly know what teabagging is, most other people probably do not. (If you don't know what teabagging is, go here, or rent John Water's Pecker.)

I would like to know how you, the reader, feel about this situation. Is the teabag joke so powerful to the few that it overcomes the confusion and disgust of the rest? Will a college kid in 2026 know what teabagging is? Should I care?

This is your chance to be a part of The Invisible Life of Poet. The comments I receive here will surely determine which punchline goes into my first book (whenever that is.)

I prefer the genitals version. It seems more in line with Poet's character, which "borders" on geeky. I don't think Poet would know what teabagging is (Ben would though).

Plus, there was a joke about teabagging on Sex and the City: you're above that.

I actually think "genitals" is funnier.
Hey, I'm just as suprised as you are.
