Is This the Best-Worst Joke or the Worst-Worst Joke I've Heard All Year?

From this Barbelith thread on the Eleventh Doctor and his new assistant:
I'm just wondering how Karen Gillen is going to find the time to keep writing Phonogram whilst acting as the Doctor's companion. Then again, Gary Trudeau did keep up with Doonesbury while he was Prime Minister of Canada, so I suppose it's not impossible.
Jack Fear, ladies and germs -- he's got a million of 'em. Just don't ask for them all at once, you don't deserve it!

(Just in case there's any confusion: Jack Fear's obviously a smart, funny guy, and I'm not having a go at him here. It's just that this particular bad joke is so almost-kind-sorta-genius that it makes my head hurt!)
