Instagram Bans Eggplant Emoji Searches in Hopes to Squash Eggplant Fridays

Recently Instagram has begun making all web emojis searchable. Fantastic news for all right? All but eggplant enthusiasts that is. That’s right, Instagram has banned the eggplant from emoji searches. Searching for the fruit (yes it’s a fruit not a vegetable) emoji interestingly yields “no tags found”. But why? Well the answer is simple; fear of penis pictures overrunning their search. Yes, penis pictures. Eggplant is the emoji of choice for those posting pictures of penises on Instagram. It all started with an event called Eggplant Fridays.

Are you fed up with all the potholes that seem to pop up every Spring? Well there is nothing you can do about it but try your best to avoid them until they are repaired right? WRONG.

CNN Publicizes Risky Penis Enlargement Treatment?

CNN has recently published an article called “Is your penis size ‘normal’?“. I must admit, I was eager to read CNN’s take on the recent study regarding average penis size that was funded by King’s University in London. Overall the article was well written by CNN’s Ben Tinker. It is well worth a read. But the article page itself features a video report at the very top which is basically a spotlight on a very new and very risky penis enlargement method. Keep in mind, I am all for scientific breakthroughs in penis enlargement, and encourage progress in the field. But CNN publicizing a… Read More »

Colin Farrell Thinks Ewan McGregor Should be More Cocky About His Penis

Apparently Colin Farrell doesn’t think that Ewan McGregor is cocky enough about his penis size. The penis news never seems to stop pouring out of Hollywood. This must be the oddest case of penis envy ever. Makes you wonder, just how big McGregor is, and how envious Farrell is. Clearly these two hit it off in a big way on the set of Woody Allen’s 2007 movie Cassandra’s Dream. In what is surely the most eloquent complement any man has given another man’s manhood in the history of penises, he told Nylon Guys: I don’t think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are… Read More »
