When PositiveMode and I were in Iceland, we attempted to go to Iceland's Institute of Phallogy. I guess the idea was to see how we compared to our friends in the animal kingdom. Unfortunately, after searching the streets of Reykjavik for the Institute (including fighting over who would ask the hotel receptionist where the Penis Museaum was), we gave up. How could our guide book have lead us so astray? Well, the Philadelphia Inquirer answered that question for me yesterday in this article: apparently, the Institute was moved two years ago from Reykjavik to Husavik, so we missed it by about a year. Oh well, at least that clears up that little mystery. If you'd like to learn a little more about Iceland's Institute of Phallogy and penises in general, check out the article in the Inquirer.
Of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that today is 6/6/06, the day of the Beast or the end of the world, or some other such nonsense. Here's an article dispelling some of the myths behind that diabolic number.
