Psychiatrist Meme Day

May 14, 2018

… at King Features Syndicate, or so it seems. In my feed today, three cartoons (of my five regulars from King) with a psychoanalyst and his couch: a Bizarro/Wayno with an empty couch; a Zippy with Zippy on the couch; and a Mother Goose and Grimm with the dog Grimm on the couch.

News for penises, Icelandic edition

May 12, 2018

From Sim Aberson, on his Grand Tour of Iceland, this wonder from the Phallological Museum in Reykjavik:

  (#1)

An eyed dickhead, a red-caped shaft, and those ample balls. Elmo is ready to fly wherever he’s needed!

Pickled pricks

May 4, 2018

(Treat the title as a warning — or as an invitation, whichever suits you.)

Yesterday, the posting “He said “prickles””, on prick, prickle, dick, prickly, and pickle (with notes on pickles as phallic symbols) and various combinations of these words, including prickle as a portmanteau of prick and pickle. To which Chris Hansen commented:

I can’t tell whether you’ve ever referred to a work of art I remember seeing but can’t locate online. It was a pickle jar filled with penises, and it was named “Prickles” There was vinegar in it too.

Well, yes and no. I’ve posted on an artwork of this description, but it wasn’t entitled Prickles (though it could have been).

That will take me to Peter Piper, and also to actual pickled penises.

He said “prickles”

May 3, 2018

(You can see where this is going, so use your judgment.)

So I did, in my recent postings on desert plants, as on 5/1/18 in “Stanford Arizona IV”, about:

the nasty prickles on the trunk and branches of Ceiba species

I forbore snickerfacience over prickles in that posting, but now I’m ready to revel in it:

(#2) Specifically, about pricks and dicks

My name is Arnold, and I’m an unrepentent peniphiliac.

More 1970s underwear

April 4, 2018

From Aric Olnes a while back, a 5/31/17 piece from Hint Magazine, “Weird & Wonderful Men’s Underwear Ads”:

Hilarious and ridiculous, sure, but some of these vintage men’s underwear ads are downright hunky — they just take a little adjusting…

Easter Fool’s

April 1, 2018

That would be today, simultaneously April Fool’s Day and Easter Sunday. Celebrations for both are in progress.

For April Fool’s Day, a TitanMen ad offers, unaccountably to my mind, sale prices on gay porn flicks like Dick Danger 2; on that flick, see my 3/9/18 posting “The further adventures of Dick Danger”; for the sale ad, see #1 in today’s AZBlogX posting “For Easter Fool’s Day”. (Could it be that the TitanMen 35%-off sale is a joke?)

Then some food pranks for the holiday, to add to those in my 4/1 14 posting “April 1”.

As for Easter, I’ve prepared a dinner table of mostly X-rated paschal images in my AZBlogX posting, sumarized below.

What does a wooden penis mean?

March 23, 2018

Two phallic postings from November:

on 11/5/17, “Alpine news for penises”, about a giant wooden penis on an Austrian mountaintop

on 11/6/17, “Revisiting 11: news for wooden penises”, about Finnish military “camp cocks” carved from wood and serving as talismans for the soldiers

Then from my friend K to me:

The mountain penis is fun. [The camp cocks one] unfortunately brings to mind too many instances of rape used as a weapon of war.

I went on to question her interpretation and to riff some on what a wooden penis might “mean”.

Shirtlessness and more: Bouguereau and Sargent

March 12, 2018

(This posting has reproductions of art works in which penises and female breasts are exposed. My belief is that these works — now on public display in mainstream art museums — fall under the Fine Art Exemption to the ban on such images on WordPress, Facebook, Google+, and elsewhere.)

A follow-up to yesterday’s posting “Annals of shirtlessness: French neo-Classicism”, whose centerpiece was Bouguereau’s Dante and Virgil, featuring two shirtless, in fact naked, men in combat. The painter was heaviy focused on the female form, so his treatment of the male nude is of some interest. On Facebook, Corry Wyngaarden then supplied another Bouguereau example:

(#1) Bouguereau, The Remorse of Orestes (1862)

(with drapery cunningly concealing the man’s genitals, making the painting acceptable for exhibition at the Paris Salon; in intent, this is not a cock tease, but a modest cover-up). The Bouguereau Orestes led me immediately to John Singer Sargent’s Orestes Pursued by the Furies (1921). And from there to Sargent‘s treatment of male nudes, in a set of drawings and paintings kept secret during the painter’s lifetime — sexually explicit, homoerotic works.

On the Slugwatch

March 9, 2018

That’s Sammy the Slug, the UC Santa Cruz mascot, as appreciated by anthropologist Jerry Zee, who writes on Facebook (text lightly edited):

I made a website and love letter to my first two quarters at this magical place, Santa Cruz. For Santa Cruz folks, if you see more Sammys – and they are hidden in plain sight all through Santa Cruz and beyond – please send to them to me so I can feature them on the SlugWatch!

(Note the snarky nod to the canon of dead white guys (Plato) and the mocking Latin motto Fiat Slug ‘Let there be a slug’.)
