I'm feeling a little goofy today. It's the last gasp of summer vacation; tomorrow I start back to school. Essentially, I'm ready to begin again yet it still feels like being at the top of a rollercoaster - yes, I love it I love it, but WAIT there's one more thing I need to do! And there is no waiting.

So I post a picture of chocolate penises (which I am kicking myself for not buying - if only to hear the undoubtedly hilarious Dutch word for 'penis').

Imagine what I might post tomorrow to deal with the stress of my first day...

When the blog opened I could see the..ahem...heads and I knew exactly what they were. DH wants to know why I am laughing...well giggling actually.

Relieved my husb hasn't been to Amsterdam - he'd bring me back this souvenir, hoping I'll be inspired to get back into practice.

I hadn't seen this shot yet. (2 out 3 cities isn't bad...)

Too funny.

I looked up the English to Dutch translation of 'penis' and it is, drum roll please...

penis

holly said...

shocking. just absolutely shocking.




....that penis translates to penis.

SHOCKING!!!

i imagine these would be the kind of chocolate you'd have to suck on first?

oh you see, i had to go and spoil it. sorry. i'll go now.

Stu said...

I have also heard that once you go chocolate, you never go back...

Anything goes with Europeans! You can't shock them. My material would be crap over there...

katydidnot said...

apparently stu and i think alike. i also looked up the translation, and yes, it's penis. but just to be sure the translator was working, i also looked up chocolate penises, and that is far more satisfying (in translation, as in life?):

Those probably would have been kind of fun to take through customs...

ettey said...

I admit it, I would buy those chocolate penii (ha!) and give them to all my girlfriends (and gay Dr. Tom) at work as a welcome back gift. Tomorrow. They would love me.

Your Pal Pinki said...

Tee hee, chocolate penises. Tee hee!

Have a lovely first day. : )

Moxy Jane said...

I have friends is Switzerland who recently commented on all the statues of penises they are seeing in their travels...but no mention of phallic CHOCOLATE! I must let them know to look hard...I mean CLOSER!! ahem...

And yes, happy first day!

i am very mary said...

Confession: I came back again just to look at the chocolate penii.

dkuroiwa said...

Gosh...two of my favorite things in one nice not-so-little package.
CanNOt believe you didn't purchase..can you imagine going through customs with a few of those in your suitcase?!?!?!

and here...when japanese say the word 'penis' it rhymes with 'tennis'...just some FYI for you!
(I have a lot more comments and really funny questions about the sizes of those penii...but...i must draw the line...shocking, I know...that I actually have a 'line' to draw!!)

Janet said...

Um...I totally thought those were Uggs ROFLMAO!!!

EatPlayLove said...

jeez...there hasn't been a penis in my house in a couple of weeks. wish you picked me up one of those.

brandy101 said...

oh lordy, please dont tell me they are cream-filled confections?!?!

(Or is that cream-filled erections?!)

All Adither said...

I thought those were rows and rows of Uggs. Oops.

Amy said...

That's funny. Wonder if I can get those anywhere in the states!?!

Tootsie Farklepants said...

How did I miss this?!? Imagine running into this guy in a bar:

"So, what do you do"?

"I'm a penis model. Molds are made of my manhood so that they can be turned into chocolaty goodness"

"Check please!"

My entire extended family lives in Holland, and until now, I've never had reason to visit them...
