Good One, Mother Nature!: Fish w/ Genitals On Its Head

August 29, 2012


Man, I half-wish I had a dong on my head now. "That can be arranged." Ahahahaha! *wink*

These are a male (above) and female Phallostethus cuulong, a species of Vietnamese fish that has its privates on its head right behind the mouth. *giggling* That's a great place for them if you ask me. "But I didn't ask you." Yes you did, with your eyes. "That was a blink." Whatever, Lazy Eye!

As with all Phallostethus--"penis chest" in Greek [GW's note: LOLOL] -- species, the male uses its bony "priapium" to clasp a female while he inserts sperm into her urogenital opening, also located on the head, said Lynne Parenti, curator of fishes at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

"There's still a lot more to discover" about Phallostethus, she added--P.cuulong is only third species found in its genus.

"It's a lovely little fish with a very complex anatomy," she said, "and I'm just delighted that we're finding more of them."

Ahahahahhahaha, of all the thing I'd be delighted to find more of, things with weird-ass penises aren't one of them. Personally, I'd be delighted to find more buried treasure or a decent all-you-can-eat buffet. I'm a pretty simple pirate, really.

Thanks to Melissa, who knows I can't resist a National Geographic story with "genital-headed" in the title.

    It's awesome becuase it makes no physiological sense but lots of geekological sense.

    My dad told me a joke one time:

    Dad - Do you know how I know God isn't a woman?
    Me - How's that?
    Dad - Because if God was a woman, our d**ks would be right here (*he points at his chin, laughs, and walks away)
    Me - (*quizzical look)

    That was a strange 9th birthday.
