Giggle.

Shall we ask the ID proponents to elucidate the client requirement that led to this particular Design?

This is most appropriate scientific name EVER!

“the” most, I mean…

Couldn’t someone have dug a deeper grave?

Alas, he died happy.

(Sorry…couldn’t help myself.)

Is this an incantation put forth by Harry Potter on a date? “Phallus impudicus

This is a fun guy on grass. Don’t let it happen to you!

The street performer was sure that his new act - naked machete juggling - would finally give him the advantage over the other thespians in the park…

Publicity still from the new film Morning Wood of the Living Dead.

Must be a fun guy…

Eeeeewww! It’s all wrinkly. ;-)

“No, sweetheart, that’s not the edible kind.”

“Your Honor, I’d like to present Exhibit A in the matter of Bobbitt v. Bobbitt.”

Concerned at the spread of the black oil from his eyes, Mulder took the last, most drastic precaution. Scully breathed a sigh of relief, and her headaches promptly disappeared.

Will somebody please stop to think about the detrimental effect such images have on the purity of thought of our female servants?

Is this PT’s way of announcing that the stimulus package passed?

[/nastiness, really]

Okay Matt, I know that this is suppose to be a mushroom, but I’m completely stumped. BTW, my review of you know what is now at Amazon. Hope you and TE like it a lot. Ditto Gary Hurd too, and I really emphasize with his voting problems there, but alas he should grin and bear it (I’ve tried.).

Years ago, this mushroom would pop up in our front yard over night, causing my wife to run out first thing in the morning to smash them with a broom before we embarrassed the neighbors. But I must say our Phalus impudica was much larger. David

My brief googling suggests “edible” but not “palatable”. (I will refrain from further comment which might get me into trouble.)

Yes they are edible, I’ve been told that they sometimes pop up in Chinese cuisine.

If you think the photo above is bad, check the Phallus hadriani, sixth picture down at http://www.mushroomexpert.com/stinkhorn_fame.html. You can’t make up stuff like this.

I have one named after me - Phallus hadriani…(blush)

I’m just glad that someone’s put up a fungus picture for a change, I love fungi. I’d like to see an entomophagous one next, I think they’re beautiful!

Based on this picture, I would have assumed that God had a preference for circumcision, but after looking at the stinkhorn website, I’m not so sure…

Looks like it was created in the image of an IDer

I believe it. I’ve spent time in China and many, many, penis-shaped things pop up in Chinese cuisine.

Most of them are penises.

… my review of you know what is now at Amazon. Hope you and TE like it a lot.

Yes, just saw it - many thanks! (For the uninitiated, you know what is Why Intelligent Design Fails, edited by me and Taner Edis.)

I’ll have mine with a side of 2 Kiwi please .…

If the head of my phallus looked like that, I would commit suicide.

Usually found growing close to cotton balls :)

I think it is sort of …cute. Well, at the very least, it has …potential. :)

Heh, I’ve found these in my yard. Seemed like they grew overnight. My instant thought was, “My god, my yard is being invaded by penises!”
