Geeky pen scariness

from sbisson here

While buying comics at FP today I signed my credit card chit using the proffered pen. It was a "floating action" pen, an updated version of those 50s and 60s advertising and souvenir tat pens where the rear is liquid filled, and a picture slides over a backdrop as you tilt the pen.

This was a Stingray pen. And it was a very strange pen, one that I found strangely obscene, in a way that only a geek would notice...

Am I alone* in thinking that there is something pornographic in Marina sliding into Troy Tempest's ear?

* along with the chaps on the till in FP who were amused by my discovery
