Christian Conservative Euphemism for Penis

You guessed it!  It’s time for more immature penis jokes from your favorite intellectual blog!

One of my favorite (and least favorite) online writers is Mike Adams; he does satire on some of the same excesses in American higher education I like to write about.  He also does some serious religious columns, which are less to my tastes.

In his columns, Adams occasionally needs to refer to the male reproductive organ.  The term he uses is “hoo-hoo dilly.”  He calls the vagina a “cha cha,” which makes me glad that he doesn’t like to write about Latin dancing.   I know that Adams is not the only person who uses the HHD word, but I’d like to take a closer look at it anyway.   I think we all know that a dilly is a small pickle from “is that a pickle in your pocket?” fame, but what is a hoo-hoo?  You guessed it!  It’s the female reproductive area.  So, the female reproductive area plus a tiny pickle equals what, exactly?  (I’ll let you use your imaginations on that one.)

But let us assume that Adams’ readers are not familiar with the term “hoo-hoo dilly” from anywhere else.  What could make Adams think that a goofy-sounding phrase like that would blend in with his traditional conservative screeds on sex and sexuality?  It makes you wonder just how serious he intends to be, or perhaps he knows something about religious conservatives that the rest of us don’t.  These Creationism-lovers don’t seem to be too fond of science, so perhaps they have moral objections to the correct anatomical terminology.  I know that religious folks sometimes prefer to stick with words that appear in the Bible, so let’s see if that would sound right:

And the LORD created Adam and gave him a hoo-hoo dilly, and it was good.

Yeah, I didn’t think so either…
