Is It Genetic?

Now THAT'S an inanimate carbon rod to be proud of! (If you're into that sort of thing.)


Ancient phallus unearthed in cave

A sculpted and polished phallus found in a German cave is among the earliest representations of male sexuality ever uncovered, researchers say.

Isn't that the dildo that Steely Dan took their name from?

It was probably used to crush wheat or something, but back to Otto Man's theory of culture influencing your thinking - those Germans are into some weird stuff. And if a man with a red mask with "chaos" on it is calling it weird, that says something.

did anyone smell it?

I'm just glad that it's all splotchy and discolored. I was beginning to worry there is something wrong with me.

Otto Man said...

See, I told you that you were polishing it too much.

For some reason, I just thought of the "MC Pee Pants" episode of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," where Carl and Meatwad get wacked out on chocolate and wash his car over and over. "Hey, Meatman, you think we should give this another pass? 'Cause I'm still seeing paint here, and it's startin' to mock me!"

Was it polished immediately after carving, or did many rubbings smooth it down? Ancient man probably never imagined that one of those could evolve to be 8+ inches long one day. I believe it can happen.

Every time I look at that photo -- and I'm looking at it enough to start doubting my own heterosexuality, frankly -- it calls to mind the monolith scenes from "2001." I think the movie would've been better if it had been a dildo thrown up by those monkeys.

Thrillhous said...

I had the same monolith thoughts, Otto. But now that you mention it, I think most movies could be improved by having monkeys throw up some dildos.

Thrillhous said...

Uhh, and as far as Mrs. T's comment goes, I was in the pool! There was shrinkage! I'm all man, really!

I wasn't saying anything about anyone in particular. (Your secret's safe with me.) Really, I'm just glad that human reproduction isn't solely based on statuettes with droopy boobs and rounded bellies.
