I wasn't going to...but I can't resist.

It seems that a rather life-sized 'sculpted and polished phallus' was unearthed in a cave in Germany. The whole story is here.

'Its life size suggests it may well have been used as a sex aid by its Ice Age makers, scientists report.

'"In addition to being a symbolic representation of male genitalia, it was also at times used for knapping flints," explained Professor Nicholas Conard, from the department of Early Prehistory and Quaternary Ecology, at Tübingen University.'

Can't you just hear THAT conversation?

'Ug....what this stone phallus for?'

' knap flints with it! Yeah, that's it!'
