From the description on the site:
Penis Pokey is an illustrated board book with a large die-cut hole in its center. Every spread features a dazzling full-color illustration with one thing missing — a banana, perhaps, or a fire hose, or a sea serpent. Male readers can complete the illustrations using the talents God has given them.
This concept is extremely funny, and a little mystifying: Clearly the publisher, Quirk Books, believed that a market exists. (Side note: it’s worth your time to look around the Quirk Books site. These must be very fun folks to work with, producing such works as The Big Book o’ Beer; Field Guide to Meat; The Good, the Bad, and the Furry; Night of a Thousand Boyfriends; Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents; and Kung-Fu for Girls: Self Defense with Style.) But who, exactly, is this market? Who are these men who are ready and willing to insert their relevant body part through the holes to complete the illustrations—presumably for the amusement of an audience? (The other possibility, that guys are doing this for their own enjoyment while looking in a mirror, is just plain disturbing.)
Or is anyone really using the book? Maybe people buy it for guys they know will think it’s funny, and they laugh together at the concept and the pictures, but no penis actually touches the page.
Is there someone you’d buy it for? And if it was purchased for you, would you, um, try it on? Inquiring minds (mine, anyway) want to know…
