ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
This hand-cranked tool was inspired by Raymond Loewy's 1933 pencil sharpener.
(Via the World's Best Ever)
And the carrot on the right resembles a…well, some of them, anyway.
well, that’s… um… the point…
Is there really this much demand for circumcised carrots?
Did you ever watch ‘Old School’?
Phallus veggies are definitely in demand.
Maybe not carrots. But you should really click through to the product page :)
a study ought to be conducted to discover what percentage of those who use the resulting product ((oo, how inclusive is that?)) can tell the difference between ‘before’ and ‘after’. then, what percentage of those who can tell would care. (cross-tabs etc)
The coronal ridge is essential for the dominant carrot to remove any genetic material of preceding carrots:
The funny things is that everyone repeats that assertion like it’s been proven.
I’m skeptical- I don’t think it works like that. I want to see us prove this experimentally.
I find it weird how people think evolution must have a purpose. Sometimes an epicanthic fold is just an epicanthic fold.
I would like to acquire one of these for purposes I do not wish to discuss.
As long as you don’t live in Alabama that should be fine.
Fortunately, the southern state in which I domicile is fine with people getting themselves, or their partners, off.
a penis sharpener? is there a market?
wasn’t there a “family guy”…? ah yes: http://www.miloop.com/film_view.aspx?movie=16830
A vegan “Make your own dildo” kit?
Is plastic an animal byproduct, though…?
Technically, maybe? Depends what organic matter went into the oil that the plastic is processed from. Most such matter is originally from plants, but there is almost certainly a not-insubstantial amount of animal matter mixed into most natural oil as well.
I guess the question is how far back do you care to trace it, how far back can you ACTUALLY trace it, and whether any animal actually SUFFERED for the sake of creating the plastic?
The theory that oil comes from previous generations of plants isn’t as dominant today.
It is being overtaken by the theory that God put it there for us to find. Because God enjoys Nascar.
Also god still approves of moonshiners
The headline is wrong. The hand-cranked tool resembles a carrot, not a pencil sharpener.
“Yes, I second the motion.”
“To all those who wish to accept the motion, please signify your approval with an ‘Aye.’”
Does it make earplugs? What does it do?
Followed link to “dildo maker”… found torture devices. 0_o
Hand. Cranked. Tool.
Shades of the “Invisible Carrot” from Chuck Palahniuk’s story “Guts” [nsfw for most values of "w"].
Take my money!
This artist has clearly never seen an actually penis.
You might be surprised by the variety of shapes and sizes. It’s quite likely you and the artist have simply been looking at different penises.
Judging by the end-product, the inventor must be Jewish, vegan and have a John Boehner fetish.
All I can think of is George Clooney gleefully unveiling his creation in Burn After Reading.
No one has commented on the fact that it’s not real? Not even a single “this must be an art piece” or “those product shots are totally fake.” No, nothing?
Ya know, I’d buy one of these for reals. It would be a fun thing to have around in the office when they put out the usually insipid carrot sticks/bananas/etc spread at the rare catered lunchtime meeting.
