    Maybe funny if you know who the speaker is. More info, PZ.

    It’s a flying dildo. That is all you need to know. I’d laugh if I were the speaker.

    idk the speaker kinna looks nonplussed by the interruption.

    Some guy knocked down the flying penis. Killjoy.

    I want the name of the guy who knocked the flying dildo out of the air. I mean, that’s got to be a resume topper!

    IIRC, this is at least a year old; wasn’t it at a Putin or Medvedev press conference?

    Meh. I guess it’s one of those, yeah-amusing-but-i’m-not-gonna-even-chuckle type things.

    Yeah, that guy was a real cockblocker.

    C’mon PZ after all the work you’ve done with the fishes and tanks, you can’t figure out how to rig up an RC dick? :-)

    Brother Og, so disagreeing with ya, it was the perfect pun.

    Hihi

    It wasn’t Putin, the flying phallus was controlled by members of his youth party though…

    The speaker was the well known grand master and recently political activist Garry Kasparov…

    From memory, the translation of his response there on seeing it was something like “That is a mighty penis, not as mighty as my penis but much mightier than Putin’s penis”

    Yes it’s Kasparov, who tried to run for president. Putin showed how much of a sham Russia’s democracy is, by pulling strings to prevent Kasparov from being allowed to have an official candidacy.

    It’s like an argument or meeting in Second Life.

    …I’d already seen it, ’cause spouse works for Linden Lab.

    Actually, aside from the flying dildo itself nothing seems funny. This looks like a press-conference by Garry Kasparov (a former chess world champion turned opposition politician; while I am not following Russian politics, I think he is one of the good guys trying to bring a level of democracy to the country). So the dildo is apparently an attempt by, let’s say, “hooligans” to interrupt the event.

    You can get a flying FUCK at thinkgeek.

    But can that flying dildo go a mile high then be used as a club?

    Wait till some enterprising modeler builds one that can fire ejaculatory rounds.

    I remember decades ago when they had one of those big assemblies in Red Square. The reporters couldn’t get any close-up pictures so somebody sent in a camera on a model helicopter and it casually flew back and forth between the ranks of soldiers on parade. You could just tell by the look on the faces of those on the podium, that heads were going to roll.

    Ah! Kasparov, then. My memory stands corrected.

    But you can be sure Putin had a hand in it. *ba-dum-TISH*

    I’d just like to add that “dongcopter” is a multiple-suggestion search term in Google. :>

    This is a religious meme in the making…

    The miracle of the flying penis. Someone call the vatican.

    They asked the prankster about the difficulty of making it.

    “It was very hard,” he replied. “Once it is aloft it flies OK, but getting it up can be a chore.”

    Why hasn’t this happened during the Republican nomination campaign, particularly at one of their so called “debates”? It seems fitting and would be far more interesting than listening to them talk. And the look on their faces…unparalleled.

    Sorry.

    Oh my god! I’m laughing my ass off.

    I want one of those for the next company meeting.

    Perhaps one can be arranged to fly over the pope-mobile.

    Thanks PZ!

    “Caralho Voador” – The flying cock. Wasn’t that a “Faith No More” song?

    This of course makes one wonder when the vaginacopter will show up

    That’s the latest Sikorsky.

    The PNUZ-1, I believe.

    I’m rolling! I just showed two friends at work, and they both said, “that’s a flying dildo!”
    I SO want one!

    scottjordan @ 27, no apologies necessary, that was funny.

    Do you want a flying penis, or a flying squid? Since I like to fly my R/C airplanes in the park, I’ll choose flying squid. The other one would land me in jail, get my picture in the local paper, and 63,000 people pissed at me.

    This is the culmination of hundreds of years of technological advancement.

    *sheds a manly tear*

    This… this is what we’ve been working towards.
