August 27, 2007: Fossilized walrus penis bone auctioned



It's Monday, time for the weekly Neatorama Collaboration!



I like the title of this IotD, because after the first word, each subsequent word makes it more and more suitable to be IotD. You knew it could an IotD by the word walrus, but at the word penis it was ensured, at bone it was passing into some kind of perfect IotD zone and when it was finally auctioned, well that's just icing on the cake, or something.

Anyway, the four-and-a-half foot long item, which does not require a bucket, sold for $8000 which was less than they thought it would go for.

4.5 feet long! Ancient walruses were packing! But it didn't keep the species alive, so having a big'un maybe isn't the perfect way to ensure getting some:

Quote:
The fossilized baculum, or penis bone, is from a species of walrus that went extinct 12,000 years ago. It was found preserved in permafrost in northern Siberia.

The auction house said it was believed to be the largest known mammal penis fossil.

"I'm glad it's going to a museum and not a private collection" so it can on public display, Chait said. "It's definitely something everyone should see once in their life."
Now I've seen it in pics, I don't really need to see it in real life.

Look for more neato items all the time at Neatorama.

The fossil was purchased by a woman in a COTWP teeshirt, who goes by the title "High Preistess Wolf". "Close enough" she was heard mumbling as she paid the bill in pennies.

The Baculum is a unique bone found in the penis of most mammals. This bone aids in copulation when mates have only a short encounter and need to perform quickly. The Baculum is sometimes referred to a “hillbilly or mountain man toothpick” and can be utilized as a coffee stirrer. The largest Baculum in the mammal kingdom belongs to the walrus, which can reach a length of 30 inches.

I almost posted something incriminating, until I noticed xoBruce's post. I guess I've never needed one.

Hooked baculums aren't uncommon.


busterb  Monday Aug 27 10:06 PM

JuancoRocks  Monday Aug 27 10:09 PM

walrus penis bone

I believe that could stir a lot of coffee at Fourbucks.

When you get to the point of using animal dick to stir your coffee, it's time to wash the dishes or buy new cutlery.

Kind of makes you wonder if the guy who graduated last in his class in OB/Gyn school ever gets his baculum confused with his speculum.



Gravdigr  Tuesday Aug 28 03:51 AM

I'm feeling VERY inadequate right now...But, dammit I've got the raccoon beat!! Giggity-giggity!!!
(note to self: try not to use the word 'beat' when referring to animal dick)



LabRat  Tuesday Aug 28 10:22 AM

OK, I have to know. Busterb has a baculum keychain. Bruce, what have you got to up the ante?

I've seen, and held, a buffalo penis cane.

I wanted the bull bag candy dish, but couldn't afford it when I saw it, and haven't had the inclination to look for one more recently.

My parents have one of those. Now we say "where's the candy scrotum?"


xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Aug 28 02:02 PM

I've got the candy dish, but no bones about it.



smurfalicious  Tuesday Aug 28 02:06 PM

I've seen a banana-dick or two in my life, but that, sir, takes the cake.



DanaC  Tuesday Aug 28 03:49 PM

lol smurf!



smurfalicious  Tuesday Aug 28 04:15 PM

Jesus H! I can't stop looking at it!

WTF - Is that thing for fucking or aborting?

::scraaaape::







What?



busterb  Tuesday Aug 28 08:09 PM

I had photos, years ago I made at Dachau at camp while in Army. They had an oxen dick that they beat Jews with.



morie  Wednesday Aug 29 05:18 AM

dammit! i really missed out on this bargain. i coulda bought that thing for $9000, ground it up into powder and sold it to chinese people for $100,000 to increase their virility. and it's not illegal like selling tiger parts.

busterb  Wednesday Aug 29 03:04 PM

Hi-jack
Yes, Bri, but true. Here's a photo of ovens and the guy who talked me out of most of photos. Said I could always get more.
I'm thinking his name is Robert Hamblin?? From Greenwood?, Indiana.



Gravdigr  Thursday Aug 30 09:39 AM

Wow. Way to bring the room down, there Buster.
