"Taiwanese feelings of inadequacy", or, "Would you look at the dick on that thing!"

Subject:

I spotted this story about a whale explosion in Taiwan. Gory pictures. Good stuff. Not really that funny. Until I got to the following quote:

Once moved to a nearby nature preserve, the male specimen -- the largest whale ever recorded in Taiwan -- drew the attention of locals because of its large penis, measured at some five feet, the Taipei Times reported.

"More than 100 Tainan city residents, mostly men, have reportedly gone to see the corpse to 'experience' the size of its penis," the newspaper reported.

I have such simple humor.
