This post reminded me that I have to trim the trees and repair the shingle damage.

Damn you, Apo. If I slip with the chainsaw and amputate my giant penis, it'll be your fault.

Why, "penis + house" gets right to it.

Most of the responses to that involve the British Royal Opera House, btw.

"With the economy, with the Bear Stearns thing happening today why not a giant penis on the roof?"

This seems like the perfect place to mention that bpl and I dropped off the cat on Sunday, and driving back, out of nowhere, she said "Oh no!" and clapped her hand to her mouth and looked like she'd just remembered that she hadn't shut off the nuclear reactor. "The penis toy!" "What?" "The penis toy!" "What?" "I had a wind-up penis toy for mardi gras that the cat really liked, and it's in with the other toys that we just dropped off." She called, they'd already found it, and didn't seem to mind. She's slightly embarrassed.

Were the cat-adopters Unfogged readers? Because if so, you could have let BPL know that possession of such a toy could only raise her in their estimation, and also that there was no way she was ever going to get it back.

If they have not already done so, this guy's band should immediately change their name to Penis on the Roof.

Also, "Penis on the Roof" should be the title of the long-awaited sequel to "Fiddler on the Roof."

Otherwise they may develop wind-up-penis-envy, which can cause wind-up-hysteria later in life.

Maybe there's something I'm missing through noscript, but the link in the original post put me in mind of something the news editor said when a story came through about an army recruit who had hanged himself in a garden shed because he was so ashamed of his terrible acne: "This story is crying out for a picture"

It's on the always annoying topic of the youth having too much sex, but perhaps thread-worthy. Oh, and it's a piece in an American news weekly on a not well-reported trend in a foreign country, and we know those are always reliable.

Klein's "Shock Therapy" is the only explanation. I cannot believe any more that he's that dumb, or that these are accidental mistakes.

He has a lot of accomplices to, among the money people, in the media, in the law, and in politics. And I don't trust the Democrats either to oppose him or to oppose him effectively.

they have kids, and she was worried that one of them would find it first.

Yesterday we discovered that the Chumash Indians* on PK's school playground had all been gifted with enormous middle-school representations of dongs, and swastikas on their foreheads. Also, I found a condom wrapper nearby but alas, could not find the used condom, which I hope some elementary school kid didn't pick up.

So I'm just saying, the kids kind of know about penises. BPL doesn't need to worry too much.

*Yeah, I didn't know they were there until yesterday. Plywood painted Chumash Indians jumping across the rainbow bridge that's part of the playground equipment. Right near the fiberglass dolphin. Argh.
