I Found It. It’s In Newfoundland.

February 21st, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 32 Comments

Dildo, Newfoundland

Here it is. In case you didn’t know, or had just lost interest in it until recently and were wondering where it is. Who knew? It’s about sixty miles west of St. John’s, just off the Trans-Canada Highway on the scenic Baccalieu Trail. It’s small, but quite pretty, and a pleasant distraction from the usual highway grind. Enjoy!

    I would just like you to know, SIR, that I had just refreshed this page after commenting on an earlier post. I was about to turn off my computer and eat lunch, when I find myself on the floor convulsing with laughter. This is your fault, SIR.

    The most “direct” route to the link is:

    Also, I would like to say that I now have plans this summer to attend the Dildo Days festival and celebrate this town’s rich heritage. I’ve heard it’s easy to spot whales off of Dildo Island as well.

    Okay, I’ve got a crappy computer, that doesn’t know how to cut and paste properly.

    It must have come from the town in Germany of which I have been speaking:

    THIS is the place to go…

    I laughed so hard I had an asthma attack adn my cube neighbor came over to see what was going on. I showed her the pic and now she wants it for her bathroom to make her friends laugh! The laughs are spreading-that is for sure!

    If I owned one of those, and I were in that area, I would be duty-bound to duct-tape it to that sign right where the arrow is pointing and take many photos.

    Sure, I’d probably end up having to register whenever I move house for the rest of my life, but it’d be so worth it.

    I think they need to build the world’s biggest something to attract tourists. But I can’t think of anything.

  • 13 ChrisP on Feb 21, 2008 at 10:57 am

    I’m sure that women there are quite satisfied with the living arrangements. But I have a feeling that finding “D” cell batteries in the local shops might pose a problem for tourists.

    Just something to keep in mind if you plan on visiting.

  • 14 ChrisP on Feb 21, 2008 at 11:03 am

    I can just imagine the look a travel agent would give you if you booked a trip here.

    “Let me see if I get this straight, you want to visit where?”

    “Well sir, according to most medical professionals, you should do that at least once a year after turning forty.”

    I’ve been to Newfoundland. They need to pluralize that sign.

  • 16 Fran in the Pan on Feb 21, 2008 at 11:53 am

    So I think someone needs to arrange a XXX town world tour, huh? That’d be one interesting group of tourists, that’s for sure.

    Hmmm I’ve seen a bigger dildo in the White House. Of course that was a while ago but now his wife is trying to get the office so he may be back.

    The text on this job postings page is priceless:

    Very nice, Bill.
    To quote the old joke: “Rectum? Damn Near killed ‘em!”

  • 26 RiffLover on Feb 21, 2008 at 3:21 pm

    You just HAD to use the words “highway grind”, didn’t you, Kevin?

    Thank you. I will now forego my banana split dessert this evening.

    Ah dear friends, i give you the list of dirty named cities: (plus an explanation for the little town in Austria as well) just scroll down a little on the page.

  • 28 Beautiful Houndstooth on Feb 21, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    Newfoundland huh? I don’t know what it is about the place but I find myself REALLY wishing it was closer!

  • 29 Chris on Feb 21, 2008 at 10:16 pm

    I get the feeling a Rifftrax field trip is in order. Who’s with me? First stop, Rectum!

    Took me awhile, but the world’s biggest Harry Potter Nimbus 2000 toy seems like a good fit.
