Excuse me, dahrlings, but...

What's That Big Hard Pointy Thing?

Is it a Burj? Is it a plane?…

Pumpkins, today a burgeoning erection is unveiled. According to someone who “studies†these sort of things, a very tall pointed structure such as the Burj Dubai is “not a penis thing, it’s a brain thing.†Oh, puh-lease, go back to school. A tribe of ancient peoples coming upon the thing wouldn’t spend much time ‘thinking’ before humping everything in sight. Call it what you will, nature knows a phallus when it sees one. It’s the oldest fertility symbol in the book. In fact, it’s even before books. That’s why you can’t learn about it from books, stupid.

I mean for Pete’s sake, Pumpkins, look at the thing. Hopefully it will help buoy the Sheik’s sagging spirits. The flaccid Dubai economy has taken a real beating recently. Will a really really big building reaffirm its position as top Emirate? The very circumspect CN Tower certainly didn’t do Toronto any harm. Perhaps the old saying is true after all. Build it, and they will come.
