The Netflix Penis Drawing

Netflix-penis-drawing

Ok…so I am a little late to the game on this one since I think it happened in 2017…but here is the scoop:  An artist of a kids TV show on Netflix decided to draw a penis on a tree during one of the episodes. And…it made a mother mad. Not my mom though….she sent me the article complete with pictures and videos! LOL  Here is the original article:

Last week, Netflix released the first season of American Vandal, an eight-episode documentary parody of true crime stories like The Jinx and Making a Murderer in which the central mystery revolves around someone spray-painting penises on teachers’ cars in the school’s parking lot. But now it looks like Netflix has a real life dick mystery on their hands, because an angry mother has noticed that an artist snuck a drawing of an erect penis into the background of a children’s cartoon that airs on the streaming service.

BoingBoing picked up the mother’s reaction to the picture on Facebook, where she apparently said, “I know I’m not going crazy and I am aware that something like this shouldn’t be in a kids’ show whatsoever. I’m extremely disgusted by it; there should be no reason my children have to see something like this. I don’t know if they’re gonna do something about this or what but there’s no reasons why this should be in this show.” (The post itself is private, so that quote is relayed from The Mirror, who apparently has someone on staff who’s friends with this woman.)

For the record, as of the time of this writing, Netflix has not done anything about it…yet. Since I’m doing important journalistic work here, I checked on the veracity of this claim myself, and indeed, the dong is clearly visible in the background of an episode of Maya the Bee, as seen in the screenshot at the top of this page. For anyone wanting to see it for yourselves, it’s in episode 35 of season one, and can be seen inside a log at the 18:45 mark.

Update: The controversy must have reached the ears of Netflix executives, because the episode in question has now been removed from the streaming site.

The Netflix Penis Drawing Isn’t An Isolated Incident

While we aren’t certain of the reasoning behind why an artist would decide to include this dick-drawing in the background of a children’s TV series, this is far from the first time something like this has happened. While many of the claims that have popped up against companies like Disney are erroneous and falsified products of the digital age or unprovable whispers from oversensitive parental groups, there were a number of incidents that were proven to be true.

  • Charles Shows, who worked at Walt Disney Studios in the 1950s and ’60s, recounted in his book that he and a few other employees intended to test Disney’s notorious eye for detail by slipping a single frame of a naked woman into a reel of a Mickey Mouse cartoon they were screening for him. Sure enough, Walt spotted it. But that frame was never meant to be seen by the public.
  • Years later, a home video release of Disney’s The Rescuers was recalled in 1999 due to the discovery of a couple of frames of a real photograph of a topless woman in the background of one shot of the lead mice characters in the movie. (We can’t publish those screenshots here, but you can see them at Snopes.) Disney representatives at the time claimed the photograph was inserted not by one of their artists, but by someone in the post-production process.
  • Claims of an erect penis being hidden in the undersea castle in posters and the VHS cover of The Little Mermaid are complicated to grapple with. Snopes says they spoke to the artist, who told them the dick-shaped tower was an unfortunate coincidence. In any case, the story that it was inserted by a disgruntled artist angry at Disney about being laid off by the studio doesn’t hold water, because that artist worked for a third party company. But still…that kind of looks like a dick to me.

  • And you’ve likely heard the one about the word “sex” being visible in The Lion King when Simba lays down on the grass and kicks up a bunch of grass and particles where the letters can maybe be spotted…if you’re looking hard enough. You can decide for yourself if you believe that claim by watching the video.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Charles Manson…

 

So….I have to confess that when my Mom sent me this list…I actually knew all 5 of the items listed below.  I seem to have an obsession with True Crime…and Manson has always fascinated me!  Have actually read the book Helter Skelter twice.  Go figure!

helter-skelter-book

Anyway…here goes:

Manson Had a Previous Criminal Record

Manson’s first known crime was committed at age 12 when he stole money at a grocery store. He later stole cars and took them over state lines, which is a federal crime, forged checks and stole mail. At age 13, he committed an armed robbery. At 17, he committed rape and was accused of domestic abuse when he was 20 years old.

He Had Previously Visited the Home of Sharon Tate

Manson considered himself a great musician and had made friends with Dennis Wilson, who was the drummer with the popular music group, the Beach Boys. Manson ended up living at Wilson’s house for several months, along with about a dozen of his followers, costing Wilson a great deal of money and even stealing a gold record from the musician. Despite this, Wilson introduced Manson to record producer Terry Melcher, actress Doris Day’s son, and they visited the home where Sharon Tate lived.

Although Manson Masterminded the Murders, He Never Participated in Them

Manson’s cult followers are known to have killed eight people at Roman Polanski’s home, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate; Abigail Folger, the coffee heiress; Wojciech Frykowski, author; Jay Sebring, a hairstylist; and Steven Parent. Cult follower Bobby Beausoleil, accompanied by Susan Atkins and Mary Brunner, killed Gary Hinman, who was the music teacher who introduced Manson to Dennis Wilson. Following the Tate murder, he and his followers murdered Leno LaBianca, a supermarket exec, and his wife, because Manson thought the Tate murders were handled sloppily.

The Name “Helter Skelter” Was Taken From a Beatles Tune

Manson had the grand ambition of running the country, and he thought a race war would do that. He called his movement “Helter Skelter” after the song by the Beatles. Manson reasoned that blacks would win the race war initially but would be unable to run the country themselves, and that is where white people would step in. He used the fear of a war between the races to compel his followers to commit the murders.

A Change in California Law Saved Manson From the Death Penalty

Manson, along with his followers Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, Tex Watson and Leslie van Houten, were all convicted and sentenced to the death penalty in California in 1971. However, the death penalty was overturned in California the following year, so all their death sentences were commuted to life in prison. Manson died in prison at age 83 on November 19, 2017, after never having expressed any remorse for the killings.

The Town That Spent 25 Years Underwater

Town 1

This is Villa Epecuen, an old tourist town south of Buenos Aires that spent a quarter of a century underwater. Established in the 1920s on the banks of a salt lake, the town was home to over 5,000 residents and a holiday destination to thousands more vacationers from the Argentinian capital.

In 1985, a dam burst and buried the town in 33 feet of salt water, rendering it a modern-day Atlantis. Initially, people waited on their roofs, hoping for the water to recede. It didn’t, and within two days, the place was a devastated ghost town.

In 2009, the waters began to recede and what emerged resembles an apocalyptic world.

Evenly-spaced dead trees still line what used to be streets, rusty bed frames poke out from concrete rubble and sign posts point to nowhere.

Amazingly, one resident remained in this desolate place. Pablo Novak was the only person not to leave his hometown when the water swallowed it up in 1985. He lives in a stone hut with a fridge and a basic cooker. I guess there’s no place like home…

INSECT PIZZA – WTF??

unnamed

When my mom sent me an email with a list of State Fair Foods….

And the ones that you should try and the ones to avoid….

I was not expecting INSECT PIZZA TO BE ON EITHER LIST!!!!

Here is what the Indianapolis Star said about it:

“Insect pizza: Great Instagram photo op, but have a ton of cold root beer ready to wash down this one. The crickets, scorpions and mealworms lack flavor, but all those little legs and wings and thoughts of things will stay with you for hours. Pro tip: The fried mealworms are easier to eat. No legs to get struck between your teeth. The pizza underneath is not bad, thick and bready. Look for Swain’s Fine Foods pizza shop near the 38th Street gate.”

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is no photo op here!

There is no washing this s**t down here!

WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!???

On a side note…the Deep Fried PB & J looks and sounds AWESOME!
