First one on the hood of the car: shape is OK but too short
The second one on the ground; lengths seems a little better but that conical shape ain’t right.

“Yekaterinburg is a modern and creative city, but why do people allow themselves to dishonor its name and disfigure it with pseudo-creativity?” the petition reads.


What is the motivation for this practice?

Is it the name of the city?

Did someone do it to tick off a neighbor or profess his love to another, and it just caught on?

I get that some would find it offense and want the practice stopped.

I get that some would have fun stroking it while increasing it's size.

Still, what triggered it and why does it persist?

Why don't they celebrate like Americans, with fires, vandalism, looting.

Just placing a snow penis on the hood of a car, and not stomping on the roof 'till it caves?

Clearly Yekaterinburg aren't as appreciative and their celebration doesn't measure up to — say the Japanese and Kanamara Matsuri.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

I am reminded of the following groaner I heard on a hop-on/hop-off bus tour where the guide pointed out a classical statue of a naked man, on a pedestal in a park:

The day they put it up, two nuns walked by.

The first one had a stroke.


<pause>

The other one, poor dear, was too short and couldn't reach up that high.

I was thinking the same.

If the point of the snow penises (penii?) was to throw uptight locals into an uproar over the winter equivalent of writing naughty words in chalk on a sidewalk, then mission accomplished.

You may be overweight if you have to let out your bathrobe.

I got a chuckle out of that.

I thought the first one might have been done by a woman — obvious attention to detail and proportions.

The second I figured was some guy's work – in a hurry to get it over with, and given to exaggeration without thought of function.
