  1. Boy, I sure hope all Buddhists don’t grow ’em that big.

    Actually, it’s probably a very nice size, just disproportionate to the statue…..

    I don't understand what Elephantjournal is supposed to be. The f*ck is this sh!t?

    I'm out.

      Funny that you leave us for showing a genuine Buddhist statue that shows nudity (which you're offended by) with "the f*ck is this sh!t." Awesome irony.

      Seriously, sorry if it offended. We're about life. Mindful living, more specifically. Sexiness, sense of humor, working with aggression (linked above) are all included in that. I'd hope that the fact that you don't know what to expect from elephant might be a good thing…that you might want to "belong to a club" that isn't about being a club, but is about being irreverent, genuine, fun, serious…depending on the subject.

      Yours,

      Waylon

    I’m amused that some aspects of existence can be so upsetting to people. I feel similar to Venus on this one.”distrust anyone in whom the urge to punish is strong.”

    Someone disproves of a post and angrily voices her concern, then someone else practically calls her a nazi for it. There's a lot of judging going on here… from both sides of the morality aisle. Yikes. People need to lighten up.

    Nice penis, by the way. I love this website.
