Perhaps it is a language issue, but I still don't get the humor. Is it
perhaps the idiom of "gut" rather than "stomach" that makes it humorous?
  As a middle american, the language seems descriptive rather than
humorous, but I have seen some phrases from the Deep South or West ( of
the US) that strike me as funny when that wasn't the intent.
