Old McDonald on Acid.

I have no caption for this photo…all I know is that it’s the weirdest thing I’ve seen in a French supermarket in quite some time. And that’s really saying something.

I begged FrenchBoy to let me buy a huge cock for our bedroom, but he refused.

So my question is….is this somehow related to the upcoming Easter Holiday?

This is the strangest thing I've seen in a French supermarket too. ;-)

To my knowledge, it's not related to Easter, but I also know that in Lorraine, they have a different way to celebrate Easter. But if it is like in Alsace, it's the Germanic way, that is a very similar way to the Anglo one, with bunnies and stuff...

Bunnies bringing eggs... Seriously... Germanic/Anglos don't make any sense at all...

In the South, we have winged bells bringing us eggs... Yep... Winged Bells...

I think it comes from the fact that in the North of Europe they use more LSD (hence the Bunnies) while in the South, we're all about shrooms (ah! the Ariègeois psylos!), which are closely related to winged bells...

Back to the giant snails, the big cocks and the varnished dogs... well, maybe it has to do with a local hallucinogenic drugs related holiday too...

How tacky, they look like something Wally World would sell.

Wow - this is hilarious! A large cock for the bedroom is a MUST HAVE...I'm going out to find one tomorrow. Thanks for the laugh!

my mom informed me that in the days of yore, bunnies and eggs became mascots for Easter to represent fertility (rabbits have great sex lives) so a large cock in the bedroom Definitely keeps it in the spirit of the holidays ;)

do get the doodle do.
i'm always agog to see french sentimentality -- this from the people who brought us descartes and chartres.

This kind of wierdness reminds of the
hanging santa's at christmas(pere noel grimpeur). The locals hang them from the side of the house, and looks to all the world like santa has been caught by the local Chasse and hung on the outside of the house as a warning to other Santa's.
