Meanwhile back in western Massachusetts....
I believe this rubber object is supposed to represent male genitalia. I say this with some uncertainty for a couple of reasons.
- I'm pretty sure they are not usually blue unless they are on the verge of exploding. This set did not explode the whole time I was watching them.
- This thing looks dirty and stretched out, like it has been around the block and broken a few times.
- It moved freely, swinging from left to right and back again, almost like it had a mind of its own.
- It was attached to something even more unattractive than itself.
Wait a minute, I think I just answered my own question.
