Ah, dicks as in NSFW dick graffiti in NYC.

Not private detectives. Not jerks.

I am actually disappointed that this is not chronicling the slow decline of the private detective in NYC (since I expect aggrieved spouses can just hack their cheating partner's facebook account these days). I suppose that makes me old. Or possibly obsessed with crime novels.....

Yeah, whoops, I assumed it meant jerks and now I've got some 'splaining to do at work.

"Chronicles of the Graffallus" didn't have the same punch to it.

After I became a prostitute, I had to deal with penises of every imaginable shape and size.

Awesome. A totally under-appreciated art form.

There's a wee dangler right there for you.

Also, I had a rotten morning at work after a 16 hour overnight shift, and you brought me farts and bad weiner drawings. It's like Christmas for my inner twelve year old. I love you guys.

You can't throw your shoe without hitting a dick in New York City. In fact, if you threw your shoe down near Wall Street, the odds are good that after you hit one dick, your shoe would bounce off and hit three more before it hit the ground.

Years ago in my home town, a Marlboro billboard was erected alongside a busy highway that was a cut-out shape of a giant cowboy. Someone climbed up there and pasted an enormous, semi-flaccid penis on him. That person is among my personal heroes.

This was great.

Count me as another who was expecting private detectives. Go figure.

metafilter: it's harder to use the vaggie doodles in the same kind of conceptually disruptive interloper role that the wee-wees are used in

There is so much right with this sentence I don't even know where to begin. It's so whimsical while still being dead serious.

It pisses me off so much that in my city, all the subway ads are across the tracks from the platform where you stand. I've been tempted on many occasions to make that dangerous trip over the tracks for some much deserved defacement.

Another aspect of the New Paganism surfaces and begins to gather force.

Phallus worship has always been there at an unconscious level in the US, of course, as witness the Washington Monument; and I was in a class once during the second Nixon administration just as the storm clouds of Watergate were beginning to gather, when the professor, who was having an affair with a woman in the class (he was in his fifties) remarked "what can you do with a limp dick?", and one of the other women in the class replied, quick as an adder, "pull it out of the White House."
