Giant Inflatable Penis Spooks Police Horse, Sparks Riot

I thought I’d take a break from politics for a moment, to present you with this story out of Wichita, which illustrates why drinking and giant inflatable penises don’t mix:

Officers were patrolling the Old Town area on horseback at about 1:20 a.m. when they came across a large group of women in their early- to mid-20s who had been celebrating at a bachelorette party, police said.

Also in the group was a 24-year-old man, a brother to one of the women at the party. He was carrying a 5-foot-long inflatable penis, police said.

scared-horse2“While he was joking around with this toy, he launched this large toy toward one of our officers, who was on horseback,” police spokesman Gordon Bassham said.

The toy struck the officer’s horse, causing the horse to get spooked, he said.

Police arrested the man, of Eastborough, on suspicion of battery of a law enforcement officer, in this case, the horse.

Unfortunately, things escalated:

A woman, upset at the arrest, grabbed the arresting officer’s arm, police said. She too was arrested.

While the crowd was being dispersed, another woman in the party was arrested when she struck a horse’s head, police said. The horse stepped on the foot of that woman, who was treated on the scene, then taken to jail.

No word on what became of the inflatable penis.

From the UK Sun:

CHEEKY student Rory McInnes did some DIY at the family home — painting a 60ft WILLY on the roof.

Guess what “willy” is a British slang for.

Thanks to Geoff, who’s actually posting about serious stuff, today.

  1. Can you imagine the crap the arresting officer gets from his buddies? “Hey Fred! Did a perp throw their giant inflatable penis at you lately?” “I see you got a suspect in custody. What’dhe do? Throw his giant inflatable penis at you?” “It all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Then its more fun and games ’cause we have a eye to play with. Batter up!”


  2. Annnnnnddddd the money qoute from the link above is: “We don’t want any more children, so the idea of sleeping under a giant fertility symbol is rather worrying.”

    Kinda makes you start humming the Rodney Carrington song “Dear Penis”, doesn’t it?


  3. Well – these morons sure lived up to the pejorative “dicks.”

    BTW, hitting, or attempting to hit a police horse is very likely to get yourself a broken skull in most cities. NY, for example.
