An artistic phallacy

September 9th, 2011 · 51 comments

Says Michael, of this note from the bulletin board of his college dorm: “It pretty much speaks for itself.”

TO THE INDIVIDUAL OBSESSED WITH DRAWING PENISES: Rest assured that you are the only personal who finds humor in this. While I am glad you are so open in expressing yourself, it is rather distasteful to be depicting to your desires in such great detail on everybody's doors. If you care to enjoy your phallic artwork alone in your own place of residence, that is perfectly fine by me. However, there are a number of students who fail to appreciate your unique style of expression on their property. The next time time you feel the urge to create penises, do it on canvas and take it to an art show. Maybe you'll make some money out of the deal.

    Since the artist is a dick, that must be a self-portrait.

    To all you guys out there – is it normal for one ball to be much larger than the other? Inquiring minds want to know.

    “great detail”? Has either of these people ever seen a penis?

      I think Dick Drawer has only seen their own penis and are unaware that having horrible, two-dimensional, scrawly dick isn’t the norm. As for Note Writer, I’m guessing that the only dick they’ve seen is that of Dick Drawer. What we’re really seeing here is yet another passive aggressive argument in the tumultuous romantic relationship between Note Writer and Dick Drawer. They’re done keeping their angst and rage to themselves and are unleashing it upon the residents of the dorm in an attempt to gain supporters.

      @Kittymamma. The detail is all in the nine pubic hairs.

      eh, they’ll probably end up giving him the shaft.

    You have to admit, it does take balls to express yourself like that on everyone’s door.

    Try reading this very well written tirade as you look over the red sketched penis and don’t laugh….or bust a smile.

    Bah, it’s a college campus. For that reason I’d have a hard time taking the “rest assured you are the only person that finds humor in this” comment seriously.

    For me as someone who worked in a dorm, when people drew dicks on the bulletin boards and info posters I was much less upset by the fact that they’d drawn a dick than by the fact that they’d drawn a dick on something I’d had to spend an afternoon making, and was obligated to keep presentable until it was time to do a new one the next month. Student workers aren’t made of free time. It’s not that I even had enemies out to sabotage me; there were just drunken yobbos who thought it was funny to draw dicks everywhere and didn’t think about the fact that it was causing someone extra work.

    Draw dicks on each other’s whiteboards (and passive aggressive notes) all you want, but leave the goddamn bulletin boards alone.

    I was in college in the 80′s, and Garfield the cat was massively popular as decorations in the women’s dorms. I fucking LOATHED Garfield, however, and would go around in the middle of the night on a highly regular basis, drawing dicks on all the Garfield write-on/wipe-off boards on the doors. I’d draw all kinds of dicks, from tiny fat stumpy ones to hard throbbin ones to long snaking expended-firehose ones. My faves were the enormous vein-covered floppy cocks with huge hairy puddling balls, though. Ahhhh, good times. I still can’t abide Garfield and would relish the opportunity to dickishly deface one any old time.
