An image that makes me smile has to be this, taken in 2007 outside Iceland’s Phallological Museum. Now Linda, don’t tell me this doesn’t warm your cockles??!
I could attach a link to my original post but to save you the hassle, here’s a chunk of it!
Probably the only museum in the world to contain a collection of penis specimens belonging to various types of mammal. How bizarre is that! Not a pornographic collection, apparently phallology is an ancient science!! Well I’m
all for extending my scientific knowledge so we take a look. There are over 180 penises in this little room, 49 of them from whales! We’ve got examples from polar bears, horses, seals and walruses all over the place, attached to the
walls or pickled in formalin! Goodness me, I’m blushing and
Hubby is feeling quite inadequate, probably because of me exclaiming “Ooh, look at the size of that one!” every few seconds. So we move onto the smaller mammal section and he can look at the teeny hamster specimen instead! The museum also has four legally-certified “gift tokens” from four men who are going to offer their penises to the collection when they die. My favourite is an American chap who has sent in a photo and cast of his beloved member which he affectionately calls “Elmo”. Apparently when he dies his wife is going to look after Elmo until she’s
had enough of it; she will then send it to the museum……..which is nice!
Right I need a cold shower now so feel free for anyone reading this to join in the meme. Consider yourself tagged!
