Organ Donation First-of-a-Kind (at least voluntarily)

An Iceland museum, named the World’s Second Most Horrid, currently displays 209 penises in part or in whole from 46 different animal species in the native section, including 55 whale specimens and 23 specimens from 19 different animal species in the international section.
.
As tourist attractions go, the Icelandic Phallological [Penis] Museum outranks a mummy museum in Mexico and a museum dedicated to women’s menstruation but does not top the horror of a museum in Pennsylvania which exhibits skulls, skeletons and pictures of deformed people, according to mbl.is. At least not until now...
.
The museum’s director Sigurdur Hjartarson said, “I have the testicles from one person and the foreskin from another but I’ve been waiting for a perfect specimen for a long time. This is the only thing missing.”
.
Páll Arason, 95, who 14 years earlier in the interest of advancing advancing phallological knowledge had bequeathed his penis to the Icelandic Phallological Museum in Húsavík, passed away on January 5th.
.
The museum does not yet have a human specimen, but Araosn's will be the first of four (4) legally-certified gifts of specimens belonging to Homo Sapiens.
.
Doubt this is a serious museum? Here is a tourist review for you. Visitors can view a 5-1/2-foot tall penis from a sperm whale or a hamster penis of 8/100ths of an inch.
.
Questions: Is this display the ultimate in exhibitionism? If so, are its patrons really tourists, or are they voyeurs?
.
Submarines are always silent and strange.

Hmmm, well sir, I gotta say that this is without a doubt one of the most unusuall stories I've ever read on your blog, and most certainly the strangest museum I've ever heard about. I can't help but thinking that all the visiting guests would pass under a portal that would read "Don't Ask-Don't Tell", if ya get my drift.

I think I'll steal...er...borrow this story frum ya and post it over on the Cookshack.

I guess the Icelandics must get creative in the ways they produce revenue since we closed our base at Kef.
