Hats and eyepatches off to Sci of Neurotopia for writing the funniest post I have read this year. I’m still shaking in my boots with laughter!
The post is about Priapism. What is it? Well, it’s a sustained erection, and when I say sustained I mean SUSTAINED – like a month of sustained! It is caused by a blunt force trauma in the delicate nether regions of a gentleman’s anatomy and, upon rare occasion, by cycling. I myself have tried cycling but, being of the fairer sex, happily experienced no such trauma – didn’t enjoy it much though, it ain’t exactly comfy is it?
One of the best things about the post are the pics, and you’ll HAVE to click through to see them! Srsly, CLICK HERE! They’re fantastic! For those lazier people, I’ll just nab a quote from her about Priapus, the Greek God for whom the disease is named (I love Greek myths!)
Here begins the quote:
Priapism is the clinical name for a sustained erection lasting more than four hours. It is named after the god Priapus, who I’ve mentioned before, and who was the Roman god protecting male genitalia (duh), livestock, and fruit plants. The permanent erection was apparently a tribute to his lustful nature (and something for poor human men to feel really inadequate about), and due to a curse put upon him while in Aphrodite’s womb because of something Paris had done to Hera. Because Roman gods are NO good at extracting vengeance.
(He is, indeed, using a scale to help hold up his junk. From a mural in the ruins of Pompeii.)
/quote. (that’s html for end quote. Check me out with my coding! I iz a 1337 haxor to the maxor!)
See what I mean with the pictures though, how funny is that? That’s just a taste of the hilarity that awaits you at this post. It has it all, Greek myths, erections, and science. Go and read it, if ye dares!
