Got Any Bat Lately?

Recently, my brother called my Mom to tell her that there was a drawing of a bat at the entrance to their condo community. After puzzling over why someone would draw a bat (my Mom thought it might be a warning that "old bats" live there, whereas I thought someone was trying to use the bat signal to alert Batman to the crime in the area) and questioning whether it was spray painted on, my Mom promptly forgot about it.

That is until my Dad called later:

Dad: You better get your son's eyes checked.
Mom: Why?
Dad: That is not a BAT that is on the street.
Mom: What is it?
Dad: It is a vagina with a penis sticking out of it!

Yes, folks. My brother thought a pornographic drawing of a sex act was a bat. After we all had many laughs over this, we all had a final thought:

Dad: That boy needs glasses.
Mom: Dad, you need to sit your son down and teach him about the love of a man and a woman (or in this case, at least the body parts).
Bro: I was driving really fast and did not look really good.
Me: So, bro, have you gotten any bat lately?
Bro: That wasn't a really good drawing of one!

How about you judge for yourself? **Warning - May or May Not be Obscene Photo***

In bro's defense, he was coming from the other direction:

Um, maybe that doesn't help his defense all that much.

*I was going to post the picture by itself and have you all guess at what it was until B said "the penis pretty much gives it away." Ha! Tell that to my bro!

**Oh, and happy anniversary Mom & Dad. How's this for a nice family post?

From your brother's vantage point, I definitely see a bat.

From the other, it's some freaky gettin' freaky.

Why do graffiti-ers choose this as subject matter so often?

So silly of them.

I like that you went and photographed it.

LOL I do see either a bat or you know, sex act/ :P But B is right about the penis is kinda obvious, your brother is so funny!

i really dont see a bat or a vagina but i do see a penis...

Lazy Housewife said...

Hmm, a bat with a boner, maybe. In his defense, the drawing really ISN'T very good. :)

Kacie - ha! I knew a picture of a penis would bring you back to commenting :) I can see where he thought it was a bat. Well, kind of. I have no idea why these type of things are so prevalent in the graffiti community other than they are typically juveniles.

Of course I went to photograph it! The neighbors probably think I am nuts!! Thank goodness they are my mom's neighbors.

Andhari - My brother is hilarious. I am sure he LOVED this post. If it were not for the penis, it could be a bat. With boobs.

Blaez - okay, I dont really see a vagina either. I see some weirdly shaped legs and boobs, and the penis, of course.

Donella - a bat with a boner! Of course! You and he are right, not a good drawing. I could go into more specifics of what I think is wrong with the picture but then the pornbots would come or my family would be embarassed...

Oh my. I don't know who taught that person how to draw, but that is awful. I do think that stuff looks like a web??

*~Dani~* said...

Jennifer - well if it is the stuff in the middle that looks like a web to you? It is fluid like. If it is the stuff to either side that looks like a web, those are legs. It is a hot mess of a drawing but it does get the point across.
