Phallic Phriday Phun...

...and a little bit of Mammary Monday thrown in to shake things up.

Greetings to all. I'm having a ton of phun with this whole Phallic Phriday thing, so bear with me. I will assume you are too, or you wouldn't be coming back, right? Drop me a comment or a line, eh? I love hearing from my readers!


Anyway, I don't think I could write the word PHALLIC big enough or bold enough to describe the following cover, so I'll just send it your way with no further ado. Thanks to Kiwi for being into this whole RPG stuff in the first place and sending me in this direction. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the two-headed phallus:
Let's forget for a moment that if you held your swords (heh heh, just the equipment is phallic) like that you'd probably break your wrists or at least eviscerate yourself when you tried to maneuver. Heck, let's just forget this whole thing. Oh, how I wish I could. Unfortunately this image will be branded forever in the image file stored in my head. I call it Drippy Werewolf Penis. Ick.
Oh, yeah, here's a mean lookin' naked chick from the same people. Is that a wolf between your legs or are you just happy to see me? How come the werewolf (man) gets pants, but the chick has to be naked? *sigh* Guess the 15 year-old boys who make up the key constituency for RPGs (sorry, Kiwi) just aren't into subtlety. Or tastefulness.

In case you haven't made it to the comments, Snow posted a really fascinating link to an article on the anatomy of a comic book babe. http://www.gothhouse.org/gh_parlour/posts/ghp000094.php

Excellent reading.

I enjoy your blog no end and love coming here. I love phallic friday and have enjoyed mammary monday, but I also love the broader snarking. Keep up the good work!

I think the first one looks more like a werewolf with chainsaws... which makes the fact he's holding them like that even more humorous!

Love the blog!

Mr. Werewolf looks horribly uncomfortable. Rather than "Drippy werewolf penis," I see "I have bloody knives where my balls used to be."

Your blog is hysterical! I have to tell you that, when I first read "The Rage" I could have sworn it said "Foreskin Player's Guide." You have to admit, that was funny AND phallic.

Honestly? As an art student who has drawn many nudes, I take issue with a lot of the points made in that anatomy article. Flat out wrong.

Nice, just as an aside, I suspect that the RPG demographic is actually pretty close to the video game demographic (though possibly 5 years younger) so 25-30 years old, 60/40 or 65/35 male to female ratio.
