How to Live with a Huge Penis - Richard Jacob, Owen Thomas Yesterday, I was sitting on the train, lost in gloomy thoughts inspired by reading Voices from Chernobyl, when I suddenly became aware of hysterical laughter from the other side of the aisle. Three 20-something women were watching The Sweetest Thing on their laptop with the sound turned well up. They had just reached The Penis Song. I couldn't help watching too.

If you aren't familiar with this masterpiece, check it out now! It's terrific.
