“The Dancing Venus of Galgenberg is unique. Her head and limbs are carefully depicted, and even accented with openings in the stone. Her left arm is raised with the hand behind the head. She stands with her weight resting insouciantly on one foot, and the right hand is placed on the hip. One breast is shown in profile, the other is carved in low relief. In my column, I drew attention to Betty Grable’s familiar pose.

“The Dancing Venus is no Mother Goddess. This is a chick with sex appeal. Cheesecake since the dawn of time.

Really? A poorly sculpted lump of jade was stoneage juvenile wankage material? Let’s file this in the Whodathunkit Category on The Overnight Open Thread.

Nature has been kind to humans, at least to human males, in that we are not compelled by instinct to perform this ritual of daily existance – at least not like this. It’s bad enough that we males are expected to put the toilet seat back up after we’re done pissing on it, but if that’s the worst of the ritual, we are fortunate indeed.

Moving on to other “business,” here’s The Overnight Open Thread.

Serious Blockage

Someone spent a lot of time on this sculpture, but what I like best about it is that it’s  made out of wood, hopefully culled from a rain forest somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, and fastened to a board with a toxic adhesive derived from the bile of boogeymen and tested on lab-rabbits’ eyes as required by the EPA.

It also takes electrical energy to view it. Real electrical energy with tungsten filaments heating up the atmosphere to prevent imminent Global Cooling. Cutsey little weenie curly fluorescent lamps just don’t cut it here.

I suppose you could mount it on a wall perpendicular to the rays of the sun, but then you could only see the image for about 30 seconds two times a year. If the day is overcast after you and your friends rearranged work schedules just to view it, you’re screwed, and  that would suck donkeys big time.

Speaking of donkeys, here’s another big ass installment of The Overnight Open Thread.

Excellent example of nature taking care of itself. This creature is in charge of making sure that the ocean doesn’t back up when it flushes itself periodically.

And speaking of periodically flushing, some of you here have been leaving little presents in the Rec Room restrooms. Please put the seat back up after you’re done peeing on it; and as for the guys, please stop writing “Penis Penis Penis Lol” in lipstick on the mirror. Yeah, it was funny the first time, but it really doesn’t belong on The Overnight Open Thread.
