From several Facebook friends, a link to a site for the Converse sneaker campaign for Pride Month:
Sneakers and clothing on rainbow themes (17 items in all).
(Unicorns are of course phallic symbols. But there’s more here.)
The first Facebook query came from Melinda Shore, who hoped I’d be able to identify the heavily muscled model in this campy purply-pink composition on Imgur:
I had no idea, and tracking down any composition on a meme site is almost invariably hopeless, so the best I can do is pass this on to you.
Then came Season Von Hexe, offering up another mystery mani-corn-aganza, this time on a rainbow them:
Also taken from life, but this time unposed, at some sort of public event. In this case a Google Images search served me well.
(The title pretty much tells the story. This is a spin-off from a posting yesterday, and it doesn’t have much to do with language. On the other hand, there are no blunt descriptions of man-man sex or anything like that. Just the jockstraps.)
Yesterday’s posting “Go H+A+R+D” had a section on the Strap Jock pictured in #1 there and its differences from the classic jockstrap. That led me back into the astounding world of jockstraps and the men who love them — a huge and varied world of websites (like The Underwear Expert), companies that design jocks, companies that sell them, and blogging by fans. With tons and tons of photos.
(It’s going to be penis penis penis in this posting. But fairly decorously, and with some discussion of names, plants, and medicine.)
Every so often there’s an outbreak of ExtenZe commercials on late-night cable television. Well, the same commercial, over and over again. The current ad features former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson, who became the official spokesman for ExtenZe in 2010:
Here’s comic Jim Gaffigan riffing on this commercial:
Note Gaffigan’s playing on Jimmy Johnson‘s name as a possible factor in his choice as spokesman; Gaffigan mentions (former Chicago Bears linebacker) Dick Butkus as an alternative. I suppose it’s too bad that actor Peter O’Toole is no longer available. (In a while I’ll consider Willy / Willie candidates.)
But first some ExtenZe background.
