Things are heating up in Iceland. Sigurdur Hjartarson, founder and owner of the Icelandic Phallological Museum, the world's first museum devoted entirely to the penis, has received four offers for the only specimen missing in his collection: the human phallus, or as we like to refer to it when we're not indulging ourselves by writing semi-plagiarized press releases, the one-eyed trouser snake.
That's right. The museum has pretty much every kind of penis you can imagine. Blue whale? check. Hamster? Check. To prove it, here is a picture of Mr. Hjartarson posing next to a stuffed bull elephant's winkydink.
Personally, I can't imagine why someone would start collecting penises in the first place, let alone start an entire Musee du Sausage-fest.
And why Iceland? This seems to me more the sort of thing you'd find in New Orleans. Particularly the French Quarter. Especially during Mardi Gras. I could totally see The Johnson Museum of OMG I Am So Drunk! OMG look at that one!
But wait. The squeals, the pointing, the loud shrieks of laughter? All the exhibits would shrink away to nothing.
So that's why the museum is located in Iceland. The exhibits are shy.
