“What’s worse than spiders on your piano?"/"Crabs on your organ.”

The organ has been the subject of many sex jokes. One popular pun is:

Q: What’s worse than spiders on your piano?
A: Crabs on your organ.


“Q: Whats worse than lobsters on your piano? A: Crabs on your organ” was posted to the newsgroup rec.humor on October 24, 1990. The spider version came later. “Confucius say: It is better to have spiders on your keyboard than crabs on your organ” was posted to the newsgroup nf.general on February 28, 2006.

“What’s better than roses on your piano?"/"Tulips on your organ” is a similar riddle.
