spongebobYes, I know it is only Monday— but I seriously doubt I’ll get anything as choice as the following the next five days. It comes courtesy of stewartparis and pertains to yesterday’s post about a very special billboard in Marine Park. He writes:

Really don’t want to ruin the fun, but I do believe that is a prostate.  I prefer corn as explanation.

To add to the educational experience, I am a Physician assistant and while in school, to learn what a normal prostate is supposed to feel like, we were told, the normal prostate is supposed be about the size of a walnut and to feel like the end of your nose, one that you would be suspicious of cancer is similar to the bridge of your nose (firm or even nodular) and an infected prostate (prostatitis) would feel like your cheek (boggy).

I love that whenever I discuss this with patients or friends, people inevitably sample their nose, to see what that feels like.  Imagine a room full of PA students with looks of clarification while touching their nose, but imagining it was while their finger was up a strangers butt!!!! Or even better imagine a student during a real exam, not sure about the exam, touching their nose while the other hand is doing THE exam.

Hopefully there are NY Shitty friends across the boroughs touching their noses right now.

Hell Stew, on a dreary day like this I hope my readers are touching a lot more than their noses! Although I have been told massaging this gland creates a sensation that is not for everyone I’d wager a few men might like it. Grab a lab partner and head to the closest office bathroom guys. A brave scientific experiment awaits you!

  2. I totally touched my nose. Later, maybe I’ll touch my prostate & compare. Not with the same finger.

  6. I touched my nose. Of course, sometimes I touch my nose just for fun.

    Funny that a healthy prostate and a healthy cervix are both compared to what the tip of your nose feels like.

Tell me what you're thinking...
