Swinging it Around

My post the other day highlighting all those reasons that I'd found in a twenty four hour period to be grateful  mentioned the fact that I'd learned that it was considered posh in Greek times for a willy to be small and flaccid. Very handy information to have don't you think?  It elicited a rather random comment from Flis about her Cerne Abbot giant clock whose member forms one of the hands.  The idea tickled me and my blogging friend, the very gorgeous Aril from Gnat Bottomed Towers  so  went off and do a little bit of research to see if I could find him.

And here he is, on 'the Dick Dock Clock'  (yes really), sold on the website of a little shop called Harbour Times in Weymouth.  He's hand crafted and you can choose the shape of the clock and whether you want Roman or Arabic numerals.  I've just noticed that the willy forms the second hand so it must be spinning at quite a rate.    Would I give this house room?  Yes, probably.  I'd just have a little trouble thinking about where to hang it!
