Well They Are Passion Fruit!

Moving away from simulacra for I bring you some rude shaped fruit instead. A vine producing penis-shaped passion fruit has been discovered by a gardener in the Brazilian city of San Jose de Ribamar.

Although none of the penis-shaped variety are ripe yet, the woman who grew them, Maria Rodrigues de Aguiar Farias, 53, told the news site G1 so many visitors want to see the plants that she’s started charging admission.

Well it made the not-wife laugh like a drain when she read the story!

Once again I can thank the Fortean Time breaking news section for this story

Good that it's far away. It could give an inferiority complex to our male population. Of course, how would I know?
