The Cosmic Cock of War

Early Monday morning, as Kyrgyzstan continued its descent into ethnic bloodbathery, a small band of nine warriors gathered at the Liteiny Bridge in St. Petersburg to celebrate the birthday of Che Guevara. It was just getting dark at 1:30 am when they broke, splitting into their well-coordinated parts. Armed with white spray paint, they cut onto the bridge and began to run in lines and arcs. In 23 seconds, they were done, having painted, in Guevara’s honor, the Cosmic Cock of War, measuring an impressive 213 x 88 feet. The Cock was ready to spring into action. It finally did so ten minutes later, at 1:40 am, when dusk finally set in in this northern city and when the legendary drawbridges across St. Petersburg began their slow ascent. The Linteiny was no exception and soon, according to Aleksei Plutzer-Sarno, the ideologist of the War avant-garde movement that carried out the attack, “at exactly 2:00 in the morning, the Cock of War pushed up against the dusky sky.” And it stood there, facing the St. Petersburg headquarters of the FSB, the successor of the KGB/NKVD/Cheka. FSB agents gathered at the windows, agog. Waiting

face-down on the ground, one of the activists — Leonid “Fucked Up” Nikolaev — did not know if the Cock had risen successfully.  He had been detained by the bridge guards almost as soon as he had finished drawing “the right nut of the Cosmic Cock” and was now being held bundled till the police could take him to the precinct. When the police finally arrived, “they were ecstatic,” “Fucked Up” wrote. When he was taken over to the station, the amusement continued. The policemen “animatedly told their colleagues, showed them pictures on their cell phones. The others started to guffaw, to laugh hysterically.” Since then, “Fucked Up” has been tried on charges of “petty hooliganism” and freed. And, despite many scrubbing attempts, clear traces of the Cosmic Cock remain. Tomorrow, the foreign dignitaries and businessmen, Russian oligarchs and politicians begin arriving for the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Russian equivalent of Davos. Julia Ioffe, the Moscow Diaries. News from: trueslant.com ~ The word phallus can refer to an erect penis, to a penis-shaped object such as a dildo, or to a mimetic image of an erect penis. Any object that symbolically resembles a penis may also be referred to as a phallus; however, such objects are more often referred to as being phallic (as in “phallic symbol”). Such symbols often represent the fertility and cultural implications that are associated with the male sexual organ, as well as the male orgasm. Ancient and modern sculptures of phalluses have been found in many parts of the world, notably among the vestiges of ancient Greece and Rome. See also the Most Phallic Building contest for modern examples of phallic designs. In many ancient cultures, phallic structures symbolized wellness and good health. The Hohle

phallus, a 28,000-year-old siltstone phallus discovered in the Hohle Fels cave and first assembled in 2005, is among the oldest phallic representations known. In Neolithic some clay representation, are linked with a phallic ritual. The Ancient Egyptians related the cult of phallus with Osiris. When Osiris’ body was cut in 14 pieces, Seth scattered them all over Egypt and his wife Isis retrieved all of them except one, his penis, which was swallowed by a fish (see the Legend of Osiris and Isis). supposedly, Isis made a metallic replacement.The phallus was a symbol of fertility, and the god Min was often depicted ithyphallic (with a penis). In traditional Greek mythology, Hermes, god of boundaries and exchange (popularly the messenger god) is considered to be a phallic deity by association with representations of him on herms (pillars) featuring a phallus. There is no scholarly consensus on this depiction and it would be speculation to consider Hermes a type of fertility god. Pan, son of Hermes, was often depicted as having an exaggerated erect phallus.Priapus is a Greek god of fertility whose symbol was an exaggerated phallus. The son of Aphrodite and either Dionysus or Adonis, according to different forms of the original myth, he is the protector of livestock, fruit plants, gardens, and male genitalia. His name is the origin of the medical term priapism. The city of Tyrnavos in Greece holds an annual Phallus festival, a traditional phallcloric event on the first days of Lent. Ancient Romans wore phallic jewelry as talismans against the evil eye  ~  GoodNews International
