Which is funnier?

Survey time. In a short play, Jenny has convinced Glen – who didn't carry her over the threshold when they first married – to make it up to her by carrying her now... up to the fifth floor:

Glen: By the time we get there, I'll be so clapped out I'll be no use to you anyway!

Jenny: Sad, isn't it. But that's the deal, lover. If you want my body, you'll have to take care of the delivery.

Of the following, which response is funnier?

Glen: Couldn't we just get a porter? Or maybe Toll Transport?
 -or-
Glen: Couldn't we just get a porter? Or maybe Pack & Send?
