Cock Pictures

But not the kind you are thinking..
I am a regular reader of Nationalgeographic.com
and lately their stories have not been so exciting.

Last night on the front page headlines
there was a link titled 
"Barnacles can change penis size and shape"
naturally I clicked it, because it is not everyday
you are given the opportunity to get information
about barnacle genitalia.

this is what NG had to say about it:
" To cope with changing tides and a sedentary lifestyle, 
the gnarly crustaceans have evolved penises that are 
eight times the length of their bodies—
the longest relative to body size of any animal."

to top that off they are hermaphrodites.
who knew that being a barnacle was so complicated!?
The nice folks at NG also provided a picture.


















looks like a bean sprout and a feather 
coming out of a rock.
but no, it's a cock picture.


Have a good weekend everyone!

Teeheehee, aren't barnacles awesome? I've seen movies of barnacles mating by sticking out their long penis and poking around at their neighbors.
