05/01/2004: From the "further comment is superfluous" filemusic: Tommy Castro Band: Ain't No Fun To Me
Russian Museum to Exhibit Rasputin’s Penis
Oh hell. Further comment is superfluous, but when have I let that stop me before?
First thing that crossed my mind was, "How convenient!" Rasputin is a main character in the recently released movie Hellboy. No doubt Revolution Studios/Dark Horse Comics/Sony Pictures/Columbia/Tri-Star can arrange for a tour of The Mad Monk's privy member incident to the secondary theatrical release. They did screw up, though, but not arranging one for the first run of the flick. Hell, I'd expect that The Mad Monk's man meat (how's that for alliteration?) could have been a featured attraction at the premiere of the flick. Somebody fire the marketing manager for his incompetence.
But of course, the Russians are still competing with us:
There is one exhibit in the museum which makes Knyazkin be especially proud of. This is the 30-centimeter preserved penis of Grigory Rasputin. “Having this exhibit, we can stop envying America, where Napoleon Bonaparte’s penis is now kept. … Napoleon’s penis is but a small ”pod“ it cannot stand comparison to our organ of 30 centimeters…” the head of the museum said.Men. Can't live with 'em; can't herd them into Canada, either.
