Shiny, Happy Penises

Clearly, Ben is ecstatic about the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. I mean, is there any other way to interpret this?

Don't Ask Don't Tell

I think not.

We’re obviously doing something right over here.

This just makes me laugh. When my son was a preschooler he drew his people very much like that and my husband and I worried if other people were seeing the penis people we were and hoping they weren’t. :)

I have many photos like this at home. What is it with small boys already subconsciously obsessed with penises? Gotta love their one track minds.
