To be fair, there are likely plenty of people out there who consider that whole area where the arm bends to be the elbow, and the possibility exists that using the term "elbow" in reference to more than just that joint is valid. To me, though, when I hear elbow, this joint is what I think of, and it's most certainly what they were trying to kiss in the previous strip.
Also to be fair, even with this clarification, it's possible some of you were able to kiss that part of your arms. I can only guess as to how someone could do that, but I think Grace has the right idea.
Now, Tedd's annoyed because he was trying to do this for hours with no success. I personally was annoyed earlier today over finding myself clarifying what I meant by elbow on my forums. I mean, I have to clarify what elbows are now? This is the sort of thing that makes me feel the need to be overly descriptive in in a lot of my writing. I'm getting better about it, but if you've ever wondered about that, this sort of confusion is a big part of it.
Of course, I've calmed down about it now, and I did get a comic out of it, so... yay? Anyway, I would be curious about whether anybody is able to kiss their own elbow now that I've clarified exactly where they were talking about. Granted, the diagram I drew is pretty horrible, but hopefully Tedd's description makes up for it.
