"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

The power of the whale penis...

The other day, Marty, Gabe, and I were watching a Simpson's episode on dvr. We were watching the episode with the beached whale. During that episode, Lisa kept referring to the whale as "she". Marty asked how they could tell whether the whale was a he or a she. Well, I've never shied away from a question so I said, "When they mate and it comes out..." I didn't even get a chance to finish and Marty interrupted and said "What do you mean?" Of course, I bluntly said "When the whale penis comes out." Now, Marty is 13 yrs old and whenever anyone mentions things about genitalia or breasts, he reacts in theatrical disgust and falls to the ground. When I said whale penis, he reacted in his best theatrical style, yelling "Ewwwwww gross" and fell down like it was killing him. For a 4 yr old, that type of reaction is pure gold. For the next 30 minutes, Gabe chased Marty through the house yelling "WHALE PENIS!" and thoroughly enjoyed Marty's screams of torture. I was laughing too damned hard to put a stop to it.


BTW, can y'all go one post down and wish my mom a happy birthday? I would really appreciate it.

Absosmurfly hilarious! I'm pretty sure that another term for a whale penis is a dorkus... but you might not want to mention that, or they'll be calling each other dorkuses (or would that be dorki?) forever.

Oh my. That is so funny. And then looking at Mrs. Gamgee's comment about the dorkus makes me laugh a bit since I had a friend in nursing school whose name was Dorcas.
