HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for April 15, 2009

I don't know if this technically counts as bad grammar, but it's bad something. Bad anatomy knowledge, that's for damn sure. This is definitely a bad description of whatever this dude's problem is...and his problem, at the very least, is having bad writing skills.

I'd be willing to bet this guy doesn't have two penises. Two sides of one penis? Yes. Two testicles? Yes, probably (unless that Yahoo post was written by John Kruk). But two penises? Doubtful. Very, very doubtful.

Sometimes when people are careless with their writing, they fail to write exactly what they mean. Which means they end up writing something (like the above) that's hilariously unlike what they really mean. This post is a good example of why you should always read over anything you write before hitting that "send" or "submit" button. Unless, of course, you want people to think you're doubly endowed, or something equally crazy...

Happy Hump Day, everyone! Rock out with your cocks out...however many of 'em you've got! ;)

Brace yourself. I feel a geeky moment coming on.

Perhaps the author of the question belongs to the Centauri race, in which case he just might HAVE multiple ummm appendages.

(scroll down to the section on Reproductive biology)

ok. End of geeky moment. Yeah. Sad I even remember that bit of trivial from a show that's been off the air for as long as it has.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

LOL!!! Well then, if Babylon 5 is no longer on the air, I guess its characters have enough time on their hands to post stuff at Yahoo Answers... :)

There's some animal that has two penises. I want to say it's a water animal, like a shark or something. But I doubt that animal knows how to type, so I don't think it would be asking this question.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha, I had no idea! You guys are just full of fun facts for me this morning. :) I'm learning all sorts of new stuff today!

This Penis Fail ought to be submitted to the Fail Blog at www.failblog.org!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Great idea! I love that site. I just might have to submit this! :D

Dave said...

HA - Maybe his is just a little on the acorn size. Maybe that's why he has to try and overcompensate by saying that he has two...just a thought...

I didn't win the lotto btw....

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

LOL! Great--after you mentioned acorns, now all I can think of are squirrels.

Sorry about the lotto...maybe next tie, right? :)

Crane said...

Or he might be a member of Species 8472. They have five genders.

Dude, I am such a nerd. I win.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! Crane, you totally get the Nerd Award for the day! :)

(I never watched Star Trek, so this is the first I'm hearing about these interesting creatures...)

About ten years ago there was a tribal man who allegedly had two penises and had his picture in Playgirl (ah, the good ol' days back when it was still published)... of course, one of my friends bought it out of sheer curiosity - it looked like it was somehow split, but I wouldn't exactly have called it two. Not sure if it was, erm, usable, either.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Oh, weird! I'm kinda glad I didn't see that picture. That's the sort of strange thing that I'm sure someone never forgets!

ChicagoLady said...

I really have nothing witty to add to what's already been said, except that I noticed it's a resolved question. I'd be curious to see the answer.

LadyStyx said...

Oh thank heavens I wasn't the only geek to remember this stuff nor the only one so pervy to post it in the comments!!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ ChicagoLady: I'm gonna see if I can find the page with the answer and e-mail you the link... :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ LadyStyx: You're visiting a grammar humor blog. Rest assured, you are most definitely not the only geek here, haha! :)

David said...

If hermaphrodites have both sets of organs, I see no reason why there couldn't be alternative hermaphrodites who are twice the man...??

I think I have an answer for the boy...he is not holding his thing in a balanced way when he...uhmm pleaures himself. Thumb callouses.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

"Alternate hermaphrodites who are twice the man"...LOL! I wonder if such a person exists.

On a related topic, now I really can't WAIT to see what sorts of keywords people are using to find this website. After Hump Day Grammar gets posted, I always have some folks stumbling on over here after doing some rather *interesting* searches...
