Common Stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus)
There just aren't any pretty pictures of male genitals on the internet. (I looked on Google Images but didn't click on any thumbnails because I didn''t want to get caught in a 'Pornado'.)
You asked when I first noticed that Sweden looks like a scrotum. I can't remember when it occurred to me, but I'm sure that it happened after I became a nurse. It looks like an old man's scrotum. Specifically, the whole of Scandinavia looks like elderly male genitalia.
That's the way of the world, I suppose. In this profession, you see more genitals than you can shake a stick at, so after a while they just seem to 'pop' out at you. But that doesn't explain why England and Scotland look like a witch riding a pig.
Phallus impudicus. What a perfect name.
