Pretty straightforward gag - simple play on words, but as evidenced by all the chicken-scratching on the pencil version posted below, it was a real pain in the butt to "get right."
Now such comparatively excessive sketching might be evidence of incompetence (it happens) or perhaps not enough (or too much) coffee yet, but more than likely it's a sign I "ain't in the mood" to draw. Which of course is never a reason not to. Never sit around and wait for the muse: chances are she's waiting for you to drop by and take her/him/it out.
All that being said, sometimes it's just better - or safer - to stay right put and work it out at home in the studio...
