Ginger Man


I am mildly chagrined to tell you that a few months ago I made this out of ginger root. I'm not sure what I was thinking about when I decided to make it. And I distinctly remember Trent asking me if I was going to post it on my blog and me responding "No, never."

Yet here it is.

I suppose that no matter how civilized and cool we think we have become, Priapus will rear his head (s) and remind we are nothing more or less than animals bent on procreation and blind-to-every-other consequence.

My friends and I have been noting that nature has a sense of humor with carrots that look like men from the waist down, etc., and strawberries shaped like snow boots.

Despite the small alteration, this is still funny.

But it's nice the guy is wearing a jet pack to get away as quickly as possible after doing the deed.

For a minute there I thought you'd found evidence of the tool-wielding prowess of our prehistoric ancestors.

It's just an Alien bursting out. What's the big deal! ;-)

Maybe you should dry it out and bury it under a rock to confound anthropologists of the 26the century.

Actually, I think it's your subliminal way of expressing your envy at the size and abundance of my "mushrooms".

Scotty said...

Mike we envy your mushrooms - the size and abundance, not so much!

What you said! Yeah, you are right.

Alien schmalian; eveything is space travel and aliens with you. The thing is a male fertility symbol okay? There is no alien in the picture :-)

Scotty said...

Bob, You have obviously forgotten that time you were abducted by aliens and subjected to the usual . . .

There's a TV presenter in Britain by the name of Esther Rantzen who apparently, before I was born, made her reputation by showing viewers strange fruit and vegetables. Where is she now? About to stand for parliament and almost certain to be elected next year. That just shows you how far erotic ginger can get you. She also had a dog that could say "sausages". Now there's an idea for a post...
