"One month ago Dartz presented uberluxury armored car with whale penis interior - PROMBRON... As the world’s resonance was very huge and Dartz got lot of angry e-mails from Greenpeace, WWF and also Pamela Anderson, Dartz make strong decision to stop their plans regarding such interior."

I'll give up the whale penis -- when they pry it from my cold, dead hands.

I like how they admitted in their own press release that they simply chose the most expensive materials without doing any research and then slapped the car together. It will take a special combination of super villainy, lack of taste and status insecurity to plunk down a mil for one of these bad boys.

I would never purchase a car from a company that can't spell "leather."

Whale penis leather is still in better taste than some sort of phony leather material to line the capacious interior of a discerning oligarch's armored land yacht.

Three bottles of £790,000 vodka and meanwhile I'm scratching around in my pockets for three bucks to get a pot of Tooheys New.

See, their big mistake was that they didn't stuff the cushions with spotted owl feathers.

Please stop all of your plans, Dartz.

If Rome can have vomitoriums, our elite can have a bucket of whale dicks.

I really thought this would be an elaborate Yes Men type prank. I really hoped it was. But the truth is that nobody can depress me like the Russians.

Can you imagine what would happen if that penis car met Kill Bill's Pussy Wagon on busy freeway?

I think if I needed a car with bulletproof windows, the damn things better not take 30 seconds to roll up.

If there's no whale penis leather interior, can we get Narwhal leather or Clubbed Baby Newfoundland Seal leather?
posted by thewalrus at 5:50 PM on November 11, 2009


(Shit. Yes I know a Narwhal is a whale. But there's definitely some whales thay are still hunted legitimately by the native people of northern Canada. Why not buy some leather?)

It took me waaaay too long to realize that it was made from real penis.

....unsurprisingly, Dartz has announced that plastic dashboard paneling made from genuine Pamela Anderson will be available on next year's model.

If there were such a thing, it would have shown up as an option at one of those online custom corsetry/boot/flogger shops. What domina could resist lingerie made from actual cock? Google shows nuthin' on the topic apart from this Russian luxo-SUV. Hoax.

I am pretty sure J. G. Ballard wrote a novel where this happened.

No love for your fellow sea-loving mammals, eh?

Anyway, I'm glad you said narwhals because now I can post this awesome video: (contains cartoon narwhals and PG-13 references.)

'It is inspired by the original playboy Aristotle Onassis' yacht Christina O, which had bar stool seats made from sperm whale foreskin.

Let's not rush to judgment. Are they actually killing the whales or is it catch-circumsize-and-release?

Yo check out my new ride. You know what the seats are? Whale penis no homo.

I went to my room and thought about my actions, and I would like to apologize. I hope I didn't offend anyone.

cause I should have said "whale dick no homo."

That website looks like it should be for a Serbian-themed private security firm with a penchant for taking over small American towns.

Also, their website is awfully unclear as to who actually makes the vehicles. Given their horrible web design, I'm under the impression that all they really do is fit fancy interiors to existing vehicles. Who wants to buy a million-pound vehicle from someone who can't afford good English-language proofreading, much less good web design?

And somehow, it comes as no surprise to me that this is a Russian operation. The Russians I've lived with (and the Ukranians, and the Bulgarians*) have been the most disgusting consumerists I've ever met.

*except for one. tanya, i miss drinking, complaining about capitalism and talking moomintroll and black metal with you.

Low brow joke of the day:

I guess pamela anderson loves the whale penis.

The car is made by the company that produced armoured vehicles for Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, and Tsar Nicolas.

Heh. There's some serious delicious irony to be found in that. And in whale penis.

Whale Penis or not -- that thing is ugly -- and someone has to pity the fool who displays this vodka as art. Really -- as art -- until his brother in law drinks it during a binge and fills the empty "frame" with water. I think I will display a bottle of some ordinary vodka, just tell people it is low brow art.
