Two Phrases I Never Thought I’d Use In A Sentence Together

“Detachable Penis” and “Sea Slug.”

I read this article from National Geographic titled Why Sea Slugs Dispose of Their Own Penises about kinky sex in nature and thought:

Seriously? I SCUBA’d for years and I had no idea I was missing out on all this magic.

The gist of the article:

A new study finds that the ostentatious sea slug, or nudibranch, may take the cake—one species of this marine invertebrate cuts its own penis off after mating and regrows a new reproductive organ within 24 hours, whereupon it’s ready to mate again. (See sea slug pictures.)

Apparently they can do this THREE times in their lifetimes. (Obviously, venereal disease is non-existent in the nudibranch set.)

I mean, look at these handsome devils…

Who wouldn’t wanna get a piece of that?

I shared this crazy discovery with one of my pals at a party this weekend and the “Detachable Penis” song came up (IYKWIM). I was shocked to discover she’d never heard it, since the words are so clever.

Just in case you’ve never heard it, here it is from King Missile (methinks these boys were fixated on the all things phallic):

And in case you couldn’t deal with the song and just want the lyrics, here they are.🙂

What’s the strangest thing you’ve read this week? How about the kinkiest species in nature? Were you already familiar with this song? What is your favorite part? (Note: I can’t decide between the medicine cabinet and the haggling.) Enquiring minds LOVE to know these things here at More Cowbell!

  1. King Missile, huh? Singing about a detachable penis. I suppose that’s better than the little slug cutting his off (is slug sex THAT bad?!). Nope. Never heard that song before. I don’t think it would hurt my feelings if I never did again either, but the best part? Going door-to-door asking other party guests if they’d seen it. It brought to mind my Yahoo chat room days when one of my aliases was Lorena_Bobbed_It. Fun times.😀

    What’s the kinkiest species I’ve ever heard of? Gotta go with human beings on that one.

    So being an inquiring mind myself, I wanted to know if the sea slug’s penis grows to the same exact length each time. Because it would be even cooler if it varied a little. (“Hey, look, it’s bigger this time!” “Huh, smaller.”) And the lyrics of that song now count as the weirdest thing I’ve read this week.

      I love the way she thinks too. And if those sea slugs actually had any human-ness to their brains, you can be sure they wouldn’t touch it if they got an extra big variety on one of their “re-growths.” Instead, they’d make support groups for their OMG. *giggling*

  3. Wow! And the ladies thought having to wait 15 minutes for round two was too long?!? “Sorry, dear. I need another twenty four.” Too funny!
    Have a good week, Jenny.

  4. If I thought I could promptly regrow a better one, I would consider it. Hell, mating again within 24 hours would be more than reason enough …

  5. Gives a whole new meaning to the term slug-fest, doesn’t it? And, slug orgy’s? Sounds like they’d need a 5 to 1 female/male ratio to pull off an all-nighter. IYKWIM.

    I could not see the video, but the music played in the background while I read the lyrics. Please tell me the line about the detachable penis being a pain-in-the-@$$ was not visually demonstrated.

    So this is what I’m doing instead of writing…commenting on detachable penises on sea slugs. Not how I pictured my morning when I sent my kids off to school!

    Okay, off to write. I’ll check back and see if Gloria’s gone all commando over here in the comments…

  7. SO weird, but as I was reading August’s post a few minutes ago, this song was stuck in my head! Then I come over here and bam! You’ve got it on your blog. Weirdest thing I read this week? August’s post. I think the universe is trying to tell me something. I’m not sure what it is, but I’m scared.

    I think my favorite part of the song is when he’s walking down the street and sees his penis for sale. I’ve had this song on my iPod for years and before that, it was on every mixed tape I ever made since it first came out in 1992. It’s one of those songs that just makes me giggle.

    That sea slug gives new new meaning to the term “cut and run”!

    I remember when that song first came out and I still laugh when I hear it.

      *snorting with laughter* Yep, it surely does, Phil. Those scampy sea slugs…

      And BTW, that song has always made me laugh too. My husband and I joke about it, since so many of my gal pals are still single and dating.🙂

    Crazy. Amazing. IYKWIM!

    Craziest thing I read was the local news article about a vampire attack. I blogged about it. http://jesswitkins.wordpress.com/2013/05/17/local-vampire-attack-causes-news-headlines/ Apparently, when the vampires come, they will first take out Wisconsin. I don’t blame them. I hate the cold too.

  10. So today was the day August, me and a few others decide to throw some love out for the clit as last week was it’s week and this month is dedicated to self pleasure…so I’m sure you can imagine the images that were running through my head when I read your first sentence. LOL! I think the strangest headline I read was actually from a satire blog run amok about a woman who got pregnant by watching 3D porn while her husband was away….quite hilarious and quite chaotic as some folks apparently didn’t realize it was a satire blog (much like Austin Hodgens and his Modern Philosopher blog his post on doing a winter Survivor in Maine created such havoc that they had to Tweet that it was satire. He even got a call from the local radio station…LOL!

    I’d never heard that song before…but it seems they were as preoccupied with their parts as Consolidated was about their lady parts in their song “You Suck” from back in the day.

  11. I’ve been waiting to see if anyone noticed that the slug can only cut his penis off THREE TIMES in his lifetime. And if he does it after each mating…that means he gets to have sex THREE TIMES…and then no more…cause then he’ll be a girl slug.😉

      LOL…nope, I don’t think we’ve all delved that deeply, IYKWIM. Although, with the 5:1 ratio mentioned earlier, it sounds like the girl slugs get WAY more action.🙂
