In case the photo's not sufficiently clear, it says:
Evidence Dolls consists of one hundred plastic dolls used to provoke discussion amongst a group of young single women about the impact of genetic technology on their lifestyle. How will dating change when DNA analystis can reveal the presence of undesirable genes? Evidence Dolls come in three versions based on penis size (small, medium and large). A black indelible marker is provided to note down any characteristics on the doll's body. Hair, toenail clipppings, saliva and sperm can be stored in the penis drawer.
Ah, yes - 'the impact of genetic technology on their lifestyle' - that's exactly what a 'group of young single women' would talk about when presented with some dolls sporting matchstick-like penises. (And I wonder why single women? Are they expected to have a fresher, less prejudiced approach to penis size? And, by the way, exactly whose sperm might get stored in the mysterious 'penis drawer'? And why put toenail clippings in there? And...)
Here are some more images. The first one permits a good view of the intriguing 'penis drawer' - I think it may also reveal a racist assumption:
This one has a gay, possibly two:
Do you feel your views on genetic technology subtly shifting yet? My favourite image is the next one as it features a Christopher Walken Evidence Doll. If you study it carefully and compare it to the other dolls you will note that Mr Walken has a penis that falls in the category of 'large':
I've always been a fan of Christopher Walken but I'm not sure what I feel about him now. The one thing I would say is that he seems to be cropping up a lot in my online life at the moment (Elberry posted that dance video, for instance, and here's a Saturday Night Live sketch I came across in the course of this, which is near where I also found this treasurable artifact:
The Roald Dahl theme seems to tie everything together, don't you think?
Anyway, I continued my walk down the Euston Road minding my own business and taking a discreet interest in that of others.
