It is a very special flower, for my very special friend!
2003-07-05 09:47:53 PM  
Thats awfully cocky of him!

2003-07-05 09:48:04 PM  
this is a good goal one we should all take to heart.
2003-07-05 09:54:07 PM  
..and why not? After all, "spare the rod, spoil the child".
2003-07-05 09:54:37 PM  
it would work in a mushroom arrangement - it would be much easier mixing labias in with a flower arrangement

It's already an influence on the Washington Monument.

Combine the two subjects (genitalia and flowers, that is) and you get something like target="_new">this?

Er.. possibly NSFW?
2003-07-05 09:57:09 PM  
That's a new error for me... Regardless, the link itself still works.
2003-07-05 09:58:13 PM  
Trying to do something completely new, or just ripping off millenia-old artwork? Either way, its old, sensationalist, and boring.
2003-07-05 10:00:29 PM  
I just don't see the art in crafting anything unless it has garbage randomly tossed about into the mix.

Not real art unless the penis is placed in a blender with the viewer given the oppurtunity to hit the puree button.

man i just don't understand. i'll try reading it agian after i wake up alittle bit

Wouldn't a phallic vase need a three-testicle base to keep from tipping ?
2003-07-05 10:11:18 PM  
Nah, just look at those stand-alone dildos. Or don't. Not that I look at those well-crafted sex toys which come in a variety of materials including something which feels like foam to the touch.
2003-07-05 10:15:24 PM  
I'd buy it

"Say it with penis?"
2003-07-05 10:21:34 PM  
This is redickulous.

I would send a Penis Bouquet to my mother, but they're all triangular and stunted...

Hey, with credentials like that, how can you doubt his artistic sensibilities? Hell, I might even have him choose my friggin prom dress. The penis as a motif, is old and tired. It's been done so many times, that it has no shock value. It's also quite boring, and boorish.

oh, I don't think you have to worry about the popularity of the penis waning any time soon, Da Vinci.

r the envy of it for that matter.

mmm..... art.

He thinks that's a great idea!

Somebody needs to introduce this guy to that triangle-shaped-dick guy.
2003-07-05 11:19:26 PM  
I for one see eye to eye with this artist. I've been trying to put penis on the tip of everyones tongue for ages.
2003-07-05 11:24:16 PM  
Perhaps visual irony is also needed to get the penis really working for McGowen.

Either that, or Viagra.

Someone just got dumped...

Quick1: She's referring to the Danish artist who put goldfish in blenders and let people puree them. It was on Fark a while back.

I think that's a great idea, Mr. Hat.
2003-07-06 12:21:35 AM  
I've been thinking of decorating my penis, but I'm having trouble coming up with a cool motif. So far, three ideas keep running through my head.

1. Basic - a solid color with a border around the top
2. Funtastic - a spiral barber pole
3. Ornate - paisleys never go out of style

Reminds me of an art exhibit I saw last year called "Mangrant", "Play the man" in English, that showed a bunch of naked men in typically female roles that are current in the porn industry. Mixed in with that were all these pictures of penises decorated with flowers... anyway, here are some pics:

Ah crap! Here are the URL:s anyway... NSFW:




/I suck...
2003-07-06 12:49:57 AM  
maybe they can get an electican to fix it assuming it wins the coveted turner.
2003-07-06 12:53:58 AM  
Young_Fart: Just remember, horizontal stripes make you look fat.
2003-07-06 12:57:17 AM  
but bigger is better TommyymmoT. or are you saying that Young_Fart shouldn't advertise what he can't deliver?
2003-07-06 01:29:06 AM  
All Right! All Right already! Just go with the damn diagonal striped barber pole motif, but don't blame me when people start hanging out playing checkers.
2003-07-06 01:34:22 AM  
And now for the meaning of life: Well, it's nothing special. Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations. And finally, here are some completely gratuitous pictures of penises to annoy the censors and to hopefully spark some sort of controversy which it seems is the only way these days to get the jaded video-sated public off their farking arses and back in the sodding cinema. Family entertainment bollocks! What they want is filth, people doing things to each other with chainsaws during tupperware parties, babysitters being stabbed with knitting needles by gay presidential candidates, vigilante groups strangling chickens, armed bands of theatre critics exterminating mutant goats -where's the fun in pictures? Oh well, there we are - here's the theme music. Goodnight.
2003-07-06 01:40:31 AM  
I just now really read the headline. "Artist aims to make penises as popular as flowers in decorating motifs".

Does this mean that every once in a while, I should slow down little, and sorta "stop, and smell the penises?"
2003-07-06 01:43:37 AM  
TommyymmoT Yeah, you want to skip the barber-pole motif. Straight razors don't have any business anywhere around there.
2003-07-06 02:02:26 AM  

Those rock.
2003-07-06 03:05:04 AM  
Wait, it isn't already?

yes thats exactly what it means

Let's get some more out of the way.

April showers bring May penises.

"If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear a penis in your hair...."


Penis-girls at weddings.

Didn't Boy George decorate his house with penises everywhere?

No, that was not his house, it was his colon.
2003-07-06 01:54:01 PM  
Nothing new here, folks. 2000 years ago the ancient Romans used phallic symbols as good-luck charms and decorations all over the place. You can still find them at Pompeii, I understand.

Where have all the weeners gone
Long time passing?

My parents were penis-children.

My favorite book was "Penes for Algernon"

And what was the name of the skunk in Bambi?
