funny friday

I got this e-mail from a friend, and although it sounds fake, pictures don't lie do they? So on to this weeks ff.............
How could we have missed it?
March 15 was Penis Day in Japan . Here are the photos.
The actual festival is called Honen Matsuri.
Celebrated every March 15 in Komaki, a town about 45 minutes north of Nagoya, Japan.
This is the time of year, where folks haul out a large wooden penis to give three cheers to fertility and renewal. The custom is an ancient one that is connected to bringing about a good harvest and having babies.




What do you say about a giant wooden penis?


Doesn't the little girl seem amazed by the size of it?



They seem sooo happy to be holding one!

I wonder what's in the bowl?

Have a great weekend!
