Rhode Islanders repeatedly call cops over 12-foot snow penis



UPDATE (5:35 pm): The Huffington Post reported that the snow penis was demolished just two hours after it posted the original story. “It’s just a big pair of balls now,” Raylene Worthington, the mother of the 16-year-old responsible for the sculpture, told HuffPo.

The townsfolk in South Kingstown, Rhode Island were none too happy this week to discover that one of their neighbors built a 12-foot tall sculpture of a penis out of snow, in clear view of a neighborhood road.

Police told The Providence Journal that they responded to calls about the phallic creation four different times in two days, but did nothing because it was on private property.


Of course, it didn’t have to be 12-feet tall. But when the mother of the teenage boys who built the thing saw how people were reacting, she felt like driving the point home a little.

“They’re teenage boys — there’s worse things they could be doing,” she told a Huffington Post reporter. “It was innocent. And to be honest, knowing that it pissed people off gave us a little charge. If you have nothing else to do in your day other than complain about a snow penis, we’ll make it 12 feet tall.”

And most everyone would just roll their eyes and kick it down or laugh.

Lighten the fuck up, Rhode Island. I mean, I could see if you had a history of being attacked by 12 foot dongs and it was some sore spot in your state's history. But c'mon!

They lived right across the street from the college. Local newspaper took a picture and put it on the front page.

And this was in freakin Kansas. These Rhode Island prudes need to lighten up.

13. The boys around the corner from..

me built a snowman with a big ole penis, when I drove by I laughed my ass off. Went home got my husband and made him go look he laughed too. My son came home laughing about it, asked it I'd seen it. What was impressive was they built it with very little snow.

The boys are good kids, good students, play sports, always help coral stray dogs, they were being teenage boys. Apparently someone complained in my neighborhood too and they were asked to 'castrate' the snowman, rather than do that they just knocked the whole thing down.

1) Most women don't like them that big (nor men, if applicable); 2) It's made out of ice, which is totally antithetical to its use.

34. New skin for old ceremony.

This from the description of a 4,000 year old burial site found in China recently:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/14/worlds-oldest-pornography-3000-years-old-bi-curious_n_2687937.html

The cemetery where the mummies were found was unique in the world for its time. The site bristled with nearly 200 poplar posts, up to 12 feet high, and it required extravagant amounts of lumber. Some of the posts, painted black and red, were either torpedo-like or resembled oversized oars. The bodies lay on the sand, covered with boat-like coffins wrapped in cattle hides.

Viktor Mair, a professor of Chinese language and literature at the University of Pennsylvania and one of the foremost experts on the mummies, writes that SRC5 was “a forest of phalluses and vulvas … blanketed in sexual symbolism.” The torpedoes were phallic symbols marking all the female graves, while the “oars” marking the male burials represented vulvas. Many female burials contained carved phalluses at their sides, and the mound also contained large wooden sculptures with hyperbolized genitalia. “Such overt, pervasive attention to sexual reproduction is extremely rare in the world for a burial ground,

I know tons of teenage boys that would do this, and I as well as most adults I know would think it's funny. Yet the adult in me would not want my boys labelled as lacking impulse control.
