Lewis Garnham is filling in for Rob Palmer this week!
Mandy is back from her European holiday. Chatting to Lewis about her time in Iceland, taking in all the culture, and seeing the wonderful sights… But she didn’t mention one of the #1 Icelandic tourist hot spots…
Lewis’s Dad, Ian was quick to call the show to enquire if she had gone to his #1 bucket list location… The Icelandic Penis Museum…. Yep, you read that right.
The Icelandic Phallological Museum (Icelandic: Hið íslenzka reðasafn), located in Reykjavík, Iceland, houses the world's largest display of penises and penile parts. The collection of 280 specimens from 93 species of animals includes 55 penises taken from whales, 36 from seals and 118 from land mammals, allegedly including Huldufólk (Icelandic elves) and trolls. In July 2011, the museum obtained its first human penis, one of four promised by would-be donors. Its detachment from the donor's body did not go according to plan and it was reduced to a greyish-brown shrivelled mass that was pickled in a jar of formalin. The museum continues to search for "a younger and a bigger and better one.”
