1/10/2005: Whale penis



A shot of an actual whale penis. Celebrate the whale penis!

On 3/28/2002 the IotD first featured the whale penis, and since then it's been an informal glance at how Google ranks phrases, a Cellar tradition, and even a sort of friendly competition (that's how I take it anyway). Here's the history so far.

At one point, the 3/28 image became a point of interest for whale penis images, and the Cellar briefly reached #1 in Google ranking for the phrase, after we talked about it a bit more. That ensured it would be a new Cellar tradition and away we go.

Ex-Cellarite juju, in a fit of pique a while back, built a site to compete with IotD. (It lasted three weeks, and I thought: see, it ain't as easy as it seems, is it now? IotD has to be a bit of a labor of love, which it is for me, and that's what drives it. Love lasts, pique doesn't.) The best image that Juju found was of sperm collection on a live Orca penis, which was very impressive. (I can't find it now, but I know it's out there.)

And Elionwyr found an Orca penis dildo, but again I point out that these are based on Orca wangs, and that Orcas are not really whales even though they are called "killer whales",...

Syc's Ciberbosque then started an impressively long thread on whale penis, growing out of and firmly extending the Cellar tradition.

Yesterday user staceyv wound up at the site of a whale beaching in Connecticut, and remembering the importance of whale peeners, took a few shots which she proudly forwards to IotD via this thread.



Good work all. The tradition lives on. Celebrate the whale penis in all its glory.

The Cellar is currently #22 in Google for the phrase. It truly doesn't matter one bit, but this shot alone is a better resource for the item than most others listed. So it will be interesting to see if others find it and click on it and link it, changing the rank. Are we truly the king of all dorks? Please, no wagering!

Thanks I actually took this picture today, in Newport, Rhode Island. It was at Brenton Point, along the Ocean Drive (where all the mansions are- There's a Jim Carey movie out there that has him riding around the Ocean Drive on a motorcycle, I can't remember which movie...) Anyway, I feel blessed that I was able to witness this miraculous event

Quite an image.
I hate penises other than my own and I still like the pic.

One question: Where are the cahones?

Google gets all weird with our ranking...the thread is there one day, gone the next. Haven't seen it in a while, but we'll keep going.

We're still offering free whalepenis.org e-mail forwarders, and you may want to join us in worship at The Church of the Whale Penis.

Good job Stacey, looks like you got there just in time. Do you know where they were taking it?

I have no idea. Maybe they were trying to get it to lie straight on the roller or something, but to me, it looked like they were scooping it's guts out onto the pavement. It's been there since Dec. 24 and originally they said they would let it sit there and decompose naturally. I guess some genius figured out that it would take awhile with this cold weather and that it would really stink. Ugh, if you got on the side of it where the wind was blowing it really stank. Where WOULD they take it?? I think they should've chopped it up the same day they found it and took it out to sea as fish food.

I missed the long history of the whale penis on IOTD. I assume someone mentioned the bar stools on Aristotle Onassis' yacht?

"Perhaps the most famous spot on board, John F. Kennedy first met Sir Winston Churchill in Ari's Bar in 1957... The circular bar itself was originally crafted from the timbers of a Spanish Galleon, wound with heavy sailing rope and is adorned with footrests and handholds of ornately carved whales' teeth... The barstools are covered in whale foreskin, a fact that Onassis delighted in telling his guests."

Stacey's whale must be Jewish.

Skin it back! I can't believe I just typed that.
The burning question remains: WHERE THE HELL ARE THE CAHONES?

A eunoch (SP?)

I'm considering a diet of nothing but plankton............the circumcision didn't help a lot, either.........

I believe for whales, as well as most seagoing mammals, they're located inside the body. Dig around the general area of the close-up photo and you might find them. Makes sense though...I mean, if you were a seagoing mammal, would you want to have your sleek sexy marine outline thrown off by a big ol' pair of thingies swinging around? Besides, having them dangle would almost be like dangling bait
