What a D1ckhead!



An art museum at Oxford University just paid $387,000 for this 16th-century Italian maiolica plate, featuring a man's head (that is, the one on his shoulders) made up entirely of, uh, male organs of regeneration.

Aside from the chuckle at artistic talent put to smutty purposes, and the usual marvel about how little human nature seems to change over the centuries, I as an etymology buff find it fascinating that this minor, inelegant but eloquent bit of slang has lasted for 500 years.
