Weenies galore: Pre-internet, it was used to drop your pants and sit down in the office photocopier. Now you can scan your nob and display it proudly to the rest of the world. Now I guess this is what they really meant about the Internet bringing great progress to the world...

Great. That is EXACTLY what I wanted to see. Someone else's penis pressed against glass. Wonderful. I think I will just go hurl a colon donut now.

This is so wrong on so many levels. And think about all those innocent props that were probably "borrowed" from coworkers after-hours.

You know, I'm all for having a good body image and all that, but there's really no getting around the fact that penises are just hilariously ugly. Did anyone else check out the "Cards" section? (I'm not going to link it, because someone might click it before I get a chance to tell them that some of them are terrifying.)

Umm... Did this really need to make MetaFilter? I feel like my hurled colon donut has been terribly violated.

They look terribly unhealthy.

I was in a band called Colon Donut.

While the idea of penes being copied is simply not interesting to me, the idea of penes being copied on a plate of glass often touched by other people in the process of copying non-penis items really really really disgusts me.

I love the web!

hijinx: Penes? Penises? Penii? Somebody call a penologist. Or a phallicist. *head hurts*

I don't know which is more disturbing: That so many of them seem to be shaved, or that so many of them seem to be much more hairy than what I presumed to be average. ::looking down::

Why is the average American (and perhaps elsewhere) male so freaked out by penises?

It's penes for me, although you can use penises, too.

Boy that sounds great out of context.

allaboutgeorge: "penii" is just wrong (only nouns ending with -us get pluralized with an "i"; the worst is people try to add an "i" to "porpoise"). "Penes" is right in Latin and acceptable in English. "Penises" is preferred. Says me.

Sylloge prefers penises!

That accurately describes the entire known web. :)

Eric, Stewart is allowed to prefer penises; He's Canadian.

I think, dictionary be damned, that "penises" is the only way to go (please don't spend too long parsing that sentence).

I seem to remember that "penes" is also a Latin preposition. I'm not looking this up, so I could just be shooting off my, er, mouth, but I think it means "in the possession of" and takes the accusative. You could then have the Latin phrase, "penes penes," meaning "in the possession of penises." I'm not going to suggest why you'd need that phrase, but it's there for you. Just in case...

Oh come on! Why so disgusted? The penis is the cleanest part of the body!

Oftentimes I have posted something to MeFi, and then someone else comes along and responds to my words by asking, "Jesus Zach did you even read the original link in question before shooting off your wad?" This time I can honestly say no. I did not click on the link in question. I will not click on the link in question. I simply have no desire to see the body part in question illuminated in the darkness and pressed up against glass. I prefer pussy thank you very much. *smirk*

non-penis items

This phrase has made my day. I'm so sick.
posted by Dreama at 6:33 AM on April 20, 2001


no anil, you've got it wrong. the phrase is "gay or canadian" not "gay and canadian."

Dammit, dammit, dammit! I always get that wrong. Between this and falling in love with Dean's websites, i might have to reconsider my whole attitude towards Canadians...

My friends this is a crazy world, full of crazy people, Is not the type of website I personally would use. But, there are many people who will consider it interesting. Therefore, do not be alarmed to see stupid things like this.

Loathsome enemies, cherished friends: you cannot deny what Tony Ramirez 7 has just said. DO NOT BE ALARMED. Also, Dean and I are no so much "Canadians" as people who live in Vancouver's West End. Heather is merely a Canadian, however.
posted by sylloge at 11:54 AM on April 20, 2001


The West End = the Third Solitude. Or just a dense gathering of cranky old ladies, gay men and mullets. Either way, not terribly Canadian, no.

Hey texist: you're steering this thread out of the junior high school locker room: what's wrong with you?!

Is it kosher to resize your image size in Photoshop? Not that I would ever need to do that . . .
