I don't think people realize how difficult it can be to crush insanely complicated jokes down into three very small panels and three lines of dialog tops. If you don't get it, it's either because I failed in the translation from concept-to-comic or it's because you lack the ability to think outside the box, or in this case the frame.
In this one, we have about three different little jokes going in one line and a title. Gay Club, where men have sex instead of battering each other to release tension. We have the Soap joke, which is pretty obvious. We also have the suggestion that Tyler Durden is out at night in your schizophrenic body participating in homosex without your knowledge.
So yeah, you try compressing those ideas into a comic without a background, without any real characters and without any facial expressions whatsoever. I think it owns, I know it makes me laugh and if anyone else wants to be in on the joke they've got to use their imaginations as opposed to their logic.
The power of suggestion.
