A Phallic Length?

AIBU to think that just what this country needs right now is another unit of measurement.

I've been thinking that,along the same lines as a Country Mile and a Plumber's Hour, we could institute a Phallic Length to establish distances such as:

the distance between my rear bumper and the TwuntBehind's front bumper at 70+ mph on the motorway.

the distance between where men are looking for an invisible item and where it actually farking is. <<screams into coffee>>

the distance that I would like DH to be sleeping away from me so I can enjoy my own space. <<more frustrated screams>> angry

Has anyone got any other uses for this essential unit of measurement?

Phallic length............. phallic......isn't that "penis shaped" ?

Wouldn't men grossly overestimate the length?? grin

Also do we measure from erect or flaccid?

I like the idea of new measurements. On the radio the other day, a comedian was talking about the Toyota Prius. He said that the dash lit up in leaf shapes, so you could measure how smug you were supposed to be in milli-Bonos. I liked that.

A phallic length could be used to measure the space between my trolley at the checkout and the halitosis ridden lech behind me.

Isn't that just the same as a smidgen hmm

the trouble is that would never be accurate... Everyone knows that yhey measure from their bum hole to give an extra couple of inches - although in the case of bumpers and personal space every little helps!

I thought much the same as littlenuttree, a phallic length would be twice as far in a blokes opinion wink.....think of the confusion

I like it! We already differentiate between inches and man-inches in our house grin

JarethTheGoblinKing Thu 09-Dec-10 20:08:16

POP - what's the conversion from inches to man inches? grin

i think i prefer 'erection'. i was an erection away from slapping her. there was no more than an erection between us etc.

Asteria Thu 09-Dec-10 20:15:08

the conversion from inches to man inches is relatively easy - just half it!

Asteria Thu 09-Dec-10 20:15:52

the real inch that is!

Asteria Thu 09-Dec-10 20:16:49

yes, 1:1.8 is about right. Just asked DP. He reckons 1:1.5 - 1:2 depending on the insecurity of the man. That's why I love him, he's bloody honest about this sort of stuff.

Nice one POP, I'll bet his man inches are accuarte! wink

I've always like the "Firkin" unit of measurement. It can be very handy Too firkin close, too firkin big, too firkin small etc

Dudley Moore is a phallic thimble. He's 5' 0". Is that a phallic length??
