Naming your Freud stick with The Penis Name Book

cause others to turn away in awe as if blinded by the face of God. This is why it's so important to dub your Jaw Breaker with a glorious name; you can't show your Pink Floyd to everyone you meet so you must invent names that properly relate the grandeur of your Don Juan in pleasant conversation. To aid you on your quest, renowned Moby Dick scholars, David Rosenthal and Saryn Chorney, have compiled over 350 names in The Penis Name Book: A Guide to Naming Your Best Friend for every stage of your Maverick's development and training. While you may not want to pick a name for your Leviathan out of a book, these pages will help you to start thinking creatively about names, as well as open your eyes to the fact that any phrase or title, given the right context, can refer to your Gravy Train.

The hard and fast rule for naming your Mr. Goodbar is that the name must speak to his tremendous physical attributes and or his conquering personality. Is he an unstoppable and unthinking force like Conan,  who plows through any opposition without a cloak of armor, or does he use his wits to sneak his way behind enemy gates while hidden inside a Trojan horse like Odysseus? Is he a wise regal figure with a long gray beard like Moses who doesn't mind parting the Red Sea?

Until your Jackson Pollock reaches this final stage of excellence, your Waldo will be known by many names. For example, he may spend several years referred to as Jonas after being trapped for several days inside a whale, or as Captain Ahab for angrily pursing an elusive white whale only to find the seed of his destruction planted in the behemoth after harpooning her.

Women may even find this book useful, as they are always in need of derogatory names with which to gossip about the shortcomings of exes. For this reason, names like "Mini Cooper," "Sasquatch," or "Titanic" are often used by women to illustrate the darker sides of White Dwarfs, like their efficient yet unsatisfying design, their unnecessary and unkempt mane, or their imperial size which causes them to sink easily.

While some women may see this book as a good novelty gift to present to a casual lover on Valentine's Day, The Penis Name Book is more appropriate for an expecting father during a baby shower. Fathers-to-be are often treated little more than friendly sperm delivery men during baby showers and must fake excitement over designer diaper bags  or baby bjorn carriers. Men need something that reminds them that their future son will transform from a screaming shit machine into the next torch barrier of the proud family name. And while the father may have no say on his son's first name, it is his right to decide what apprentice name to dub his son's Willy Wonka, a name that will surely decide the trajectory of his son's Bilbo Baggins for the rest of his life. Expecting mothers may not at first understand the necessity of this ritual, but like it or not both parents will need a name with which to teach their son proper Katana handling techniques and etiquette. Like it or not, at some point every parent will have to say, "We don't reveal the secret identity of Mr. Fantastic to company now do we?" or, "Give Donkey Kong Jr. a few hard shakes afterward,"  and most importantly, "You boys stop sword fighting with your light sabers in the house?"

It's an important day in every man's life when he christens his Pink Panther with a classy, yet masculine title that not only conveys his Big Lebowski's physical prowess, but also his domineering personality. Is your Dirty Harry an olive skinned Spanish gentleman, like Christopher Columbus, who risks his life to explore virgin territory, or is he an all-American adventurer like Neil Armstrong prepared to land his lunar module on alien territory and be the first to plant his flag in the dark-side of the moon?

Ideally at birth our Popeyes would stand up and declare their presence, saying something like, "I AM Spartacus." Then they would be fitted with a hospital ID bracelet and some sort of cloak so as not to be confused with the other Lincoln Logs scattered about the baby room. Realistically though, your Big Ben will have many different names throughout its life: potty training names your parents use for your Frogger, little league names before you realize the full power of your Louisville Slugger, the squire name you anoint your Merlin with after your first magical sexual encounter, the name ex-lovers and the conquered use to refer to your Beaver Cleaver, and finally the knightly name you dub your Excalibur after it becomes battle tested.

Men learn early on that your Captain Marvel holds a superpower that, when unsheathed in public, can
