We All Are

At this point, anyway. Staying with the vibe.

I can honestly say that, as a child, it would never have occurred to me that these were phallic; just weird. As a horny adolescent, I was far more interested in female anatomy. So maybe I would have noticed, but probably not much. As an old man, I still think they’re just badly trimmed bushes. Maybe a lazy stab at topiary.

As usual, what you see says more about you than the object.
My NextDoor is never this interesting. 😢

But, full disclosure, I was banned for apparently being mean to people. Must have been the posts on the school board election. I dunno. I avoid being personal there, but apparently telling someone “No, that’s not right” was too harsh. I found out I was barred when I wondered why I wasn’t getting the tedious e/mails notifying me of the latest assault on good order around me. I logged on just out of curiosity, which led me to promise not to do it again (whatever I did). Like I say, I was curious.

Curiosity is not the good thing they told you it is.

  1. Looks to me like someone needed a ladder. I wonder how long it will take for Freudianism to wear out of the culture, Though, when you look at the way they used actual phallic imagery in ancient Rome and Greece, maybe Freud was just picking up on something that is more common than not.
