Snow is good... Penises are good...

Why is a snow penis not good?

Sorry friends, for large public phalluses, nothing beats the water tower in Ypsilanti:

Remember the other day, when you asked me what the definition of irony was? Well, read your own post.

OK, I'll admit that I am a tiny bit of a prude when it comes to public displays of body parts. But did you see the original story? It's really a rather poor rendering of a penis. I can't imagine any kids being traumatized by it because it just looks like a big, pointy pile of snow with an unfinished snowperson underneath it.

And it's not like it was a huge donkey penis farkin' a whore. That would be hard to do out of ice ... probably need an ice carver to do it justice.

The only thing that disturbs me is the fact the cops went onto private property and destroyed it without a word.


Maybe I'm not enough of a nutjob but personally I think using the word "destruction" to describe knocking over a snow sculpture to be a little strong. It's not like the cops went onto the property and torched the house, ya know?

Yeah, slippery slope and all that but I think the cops could have gone either way. People complained and the cops were under pressure to make them happy.

Big farking deal. It was just a snow dick, ya know?

It's the mating call of the wild prude.

Sorry, don't remember that conversation. Try again. I have never and will never write in to a magazine, newspaper, tv station or any other media outlet, so wtf are you talking about?

Snowsnakes? Now there is a menace.

humans are ashamed of anything about us that reminds us that we are animals.

urine, feces, gas, mucus...
we're even supposed to be ashamed of our reproductive organs and others' reproductive organs.
 
2005-12-20 03:30:37 PM
It's too bad people find reproductive organs (in this case penis's) so offensive. Perhaps I could have the sex more if this was not true....possible, but not probable I suppose.

you're welcome - to those of you with the thanks for the link. that is the most helpful site i know of for hunting down any one of the calvin & hobbes comic strips - just click the graphics at the top, and use the index. unless, of course, you know the exact date it was published, in which case you might have an easier time here
 
2005-12-20 03:32:33 PM
I still have to sit and scratch my head at times and wonder what fundamentalist zealous christians are getting out of there beliefs. They cling to it very tenaciously, so there must be some kind of psychological reward they are getting. It seems their faith asks of them to be such complete retards.

is it an addiciton ?

is it regular old existentialism ? the fear of the reaper ?

"I'm no prude" is an example of a statement that is automatically false whenever it's spoken. If it were true, you wouldn't have needed to say it.

Another one is "I've got class."

So you don't value your First Amendment rights?


I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that having a snow dick, or any other type of display that offends a certain percentage of the population (rightly or wrongly), is free speech.

Have you ever read what the First Amendment actually says? I don't pretend to understand all of its ramifications but I dislike it when people toss out "First Amendment" any old time they feel oppressed.
 
2005-12-20 03:37:51 PM
I would hope that if there were a God, he'd have better thing to do than get worked up over a snow penis. I mean, aren't we 'created in God's image?' I think he's probably seen one or two before.

May God damn this newspaper for running the photo of the snow penis online. I am no prude, but..

This same guy wrote a letter to the newspaper a week earlier complaining about all of the fire hydrants, lightpoles, and chimneys in the city - they are all just too damn fallic! Damn all fire hydrants to hell!
 
2005-12-20 03:43:08 PM

2005-12-20 03:47:56 PM
wrong, but inevitable, course of action: cops knock down snowpenis to satisfy otherwise torchwielding mob

better, but overlooked course of action: go to door. knock on door. if no one home, leave note on door asking person to remove snow sculpture. if person does not remove snow sculpture, proceed with looking at laws to determine legal course of action. (go home have a beer and chuckle)

then let the mob knock down snowpenis. have them arrested for trespassing.

If penises and boobies in public are OK, why don't you go to work nekkid tomorrow?

Ladies, just go in, shed your big boots, gloves, scarf, hat, overcoat, shoes, giggidy, nice litte pant suit combination, giggidy, lace hosiery, giggidy, black lace push-up bra, giggidy, panties, giggidy gooo!

I just love that "May God damn this newspaper... I'm no prude" crap. I think I would have gotten punished by my parents more if I'd said "God damn" than if I'd made a snow phallus. It's all relative.

So you agree with him. Why are you posting?

I wonder how farkers would be reacting if it was made of silicone instead of snow.

Are you down with snow PP?

/yea...you know me
 
2005-12-20 03:58:28 PM
Yes, because we all know how God hates penises. Naughty, naughty species-propagating organ of sin.

Thank you, Abe Vigoda's Ghost. I know a lot of Farkers are tired of her -- but that fat, crazy biatch amuses me to no end.

She's a Christian-uuaaah!
 
2005-12-20 04:01:24 PM
Maybe some of the hubbub could have been avoided if "it" wasn't called a snow penis.

We could just call it "it".

Or, parents driving by could just explain to their tots that it represents a glans and shaft in fully erect mode, when engorged with blood during arousal, without using the word, "penis". At least then trauma would be avoided.

I'm no prude, I'm just offering alternatives.

I made a pregnant snow-woman this year. People sure took a second glance.
 
2005-12-20 04:02:16 PM
from original article:

"Sherer, um, erected the statue with her boyfriend and another friend Sunday."

"The last two nights of freezing weather has made the snow too stiff to sculpt, said Sherer."

"Biasotti worries the display might give others ideas. "Now we're going to get snow penises popping up all over town," he said."

oh man...

Dammit. You know, the worst kind of typo is the one that entire reverses what you were trying to say.

I mean to say that having a snow dick on your lawn is NOT covered by "free speech". Not. Not. Not. Dammit.

I really, really, really need to preview better.
 
2005-12-20 04:08:25 PM
Wow Jument, I was with you until you reversed yourself. Christmas light could "offend a certain percentage of the population (rightly or wrongly)" but I'd say that that is covered under free speech too. Are you also offended by the murderous Santa display that was in the news? It's not actually harming someone (like yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre might) therefore I say let it fly, free speech for everybody!

Freudian Slip?

what if i was standing in my yard saying penis and not breaking and noise ordinances? is that free speech? can the police come and knock me over? just asking...
 
2005-12-20 04:13:49 PM
What if it was a snow penis gourd?
 
2005-12-20 04:14:35 PM
Am I the only one who mis-read that as:
"May God damn this newspaper for ruining the photo of the snow penis!"

/? Guess so...
 
2005-12-20 04:15:29 PM
I don't have a problem with a snow penis. Don't get me wrong. My point was that having a snow penis in your yard is not considered free speech. That's all. There may be other valid legal reasons why the cops shouldn't have done what they did but I do not believe the First Amendment has anything to do with it.

/IANAL so correct me if I'm wrong

If enough neighbours biatch about it I don't really see a big problem with the cops knocking it down. I don't think a destroying something that is by nature temporary and without material value is a big deal. But yeah, slippery slope and all that does come into play so YMMV.

doodler: If penises and boobies in public are OK, why don't you go to work nekkid tomorrow?

It's an unfortunate fact that 98% of the population looks better with their clothes on.

/It may be higher now. The situation is *not* improving
