I SEE PENIS? & VAGINA?: PINK'S

There is just something about the word "pink".  A chromatic cousin to the metaphorically front-loaded "red", pink was originally considered a masculine color.  Centuries of shed blood from demographically superfluous males should count for something right?  Male babies born at the turn of the century were often placed in pink blankets.  Watery and indecisive, girls got blue.  Genitals often have a way of changing things, however.  Over time, pink found itself taking on another, more explicit metaphor: the clitoral glans (or the vaginal opening itself).      

How doubly ironic then that a restaurant called "Pink's" should specialize in hotdogs and suggestive balloon sculptures.

Thanks to Nevada native Tyler for snapping the pic above and sending it in to BSD HQ.



The "Shocker": two in the pink, one in the stink.
