I initially wrote the passerby's favourite song as "We Will Rock You", also by Queen. With exactly the same dialogue in the rest of the strip.

And then I realised there was a much better choice.

Yes, that entire secondary joke wasn't there in the first iteration of this strip. Given how much better the new choice of song is, arguably the secondary joke is now the primary joke, and the original primary joke is relegated to a secondary joke.
