"Worlds Power Brokers ---Show Penises"
After the ineffectual, last meeting of the G20, the headline in the weekly “Onion” (www.onion.com) reported, “Worlds Power Brokers Hold Annual Summit Where They Show Each Other Their Penises”. And further —-“To see the penises of so many like-minded, forward-thinking men and to show them my own penis__this is what keeps the global wheels of industry an ingenuity turning.”
The “Onion” is not the first, satiric rag to hit upon a basic psychological truism that relates to the dirivative of Penis linked to Power. It seems to me to be a deep, down male syndrome or whatever.
My wife, the only woman Director amongst six other male Directors of the company, complained to me over and over at lunch, following their Friday morning meetings, about the male Directors perpetually wasting time by each asserting dominance —-who best “bested ” a competitor of a contract—who knew more NFL scores, etc.—-all of them sapping time away from the agenda. One Friday, after a really onerous time-waster, my wife said, “Why don’t you guys just whip out your dongs and put them on the table so we can see who the BIG GUY is around here. Then, let’s move on!” Severalof them laughed jovially, boisterously (probably the men with the biggest dicks) and my wife said, two remained curiously silent , one of whom was always asserting dominance— in fact, fighting for dominance and the one, another director said to my wife later, has a tiny dick.
