Description

I ask you this; How in the name of natural science did my urban vegetable garden in the picturesque hamlet of Waiuku produce such a splendid spectacle of virility as this magnificent Kumara.

I've been told the land was fertile but this has redefined the term.

Just look at the unecessary level of detail that nature went to... Why does it have veins? Why the graceful curvature? What ungodly power does this pulsating purple war hammer hold within it's rigid core? Who placed it in my soil? Odin himself??

Is the great architect now sitting back in their chair proudly admiring their work with the satisfied smile of a 13 year old kid who has just mastered the art of phallic drawing in the back of their maths book?

Whole civilisations of idol worshippers have probably sprung up in humankind's history for less provoking natural wonders than this Kumara.

If this was dug up in the mountains of ancient Peru it would be heralded as a sign of great fertility and prosperity for the coming seasons and would be hauled to the summit of a mountain by a hoard of devoted adorers to be sacrificed to the rising sun.

If you gave Michelangelo a bar of modelling clay and challenged him to come up with the most vulgar phallic representation of male genitalia that he possibly could, he would throw down his tools in despair if he saw what my Kumara patch just produced.

If his David statue had half the potency of this monstrous demon it wouldn't be on public display today & Goliath would have backed out of the fight real early on.

If you buy this Kumara you are not simply buying a Kumara. You are buying prosperity itself. You are buying a wonder of the natural world & a pinnacle of botanic evolution.

I believe I have been gifted this botanic beast for a reason so am auctioning it off. Every dollar of this auction will go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand to help with their work. One day you or someone you know may need them.

    The unearthing event was the 9th of April at 3:50pm. It was a defining moment. As the beast was unveiled from the earth the sky darkened and a thunderclap rolled over head. Many strange things happen in Waiuku.mikew4(277)• Thursday, 11 April 2019

    Well there's certainly a few lumps here and there but quite sure they are benign. Yes it has bed bed ridden, deeply, right in the middle of the Kumara bed.

    It's definitely going to be a challenge to peel. Not for a novice. I'm not sure if it would be satisfying or uncomfortable to peel having never peeled a veiny phallus before. Definitely uncomfortable if you maintained stone faced eye contact with someone whilst slowly peeling it. Definitely satisfying if you imagined it belonged to someone you dislike.mikew4(277)• Saturday, 13 April 2019

    It's a fine balance regulating moisture to avoid drying out but not allowing damp rot & fungus to set in. Best bet is a box in a well ventilated but cool & dark area.mikew4(277)• Sunday, 14 April 2019

    Ok so this is a bit of harmless fun and most questions, as dirty as they are, I can deal with but some are just grim and too explicit for me to turn into something innocuous. Let's at least try to lean this toward the PG end of the scale if we can. I don't know what the line is but if your question has gone unanswered for a day it's probably crossed that line!

    No way, I'm preparing for the long winter. With Auckland's expansion fast approaching Waiuku's boundaries us Waiukuians need to ensure our fighting folk are well fed and fattened or we'll never survive.

    Oh my such a handsome boy, one knows he would be quite delicious. Do you think he might like older women who have "gone without" kumara for a while? I'd be willinging to host a dinner party and share him with my friends. There does seem to be enough to go round and we could all have little nibbles. I do feel we could butter him up a bit and he'd be quite a good sport in the kitchen, and outdoors even. Can you ask him please if he likes to party?

    I think it's something you and your wife just need to work through. She's obviously harboring desires she can't control and who can blame her? I mean look at the guy.... She's probably been too embarrassed to tell you so my advice would be to just go with it. Book a room in the same hotel, get there early and surprise them by hiding in the wardrobe. Maybe wear a funny hockey mask and take a chainsaw or hatchet. You know, just to break the ice.mikew4(277)• Tuesday, 16 April 2019

    It was grown in Waiuku. Now I don't know if you know much about Waiuku but it's pretty much as close as you will get to paradise on earth. It's residents are beautifully tanned pinnacles of health and vitality and this can be directly contributed to being bathed in the glorious warmth of clear skys and endless sunshine.

    Ok I've had a long look at the second hand Kumara market and I'd have to say it's a little volatile at the moment. There's a broad spectrum of market entry points and not a lot of total sales.

    Well that really depends on who you've been seeing leading up to the close of the auction. It's often a tricky subject to bring up though especially with new partners. "Hey" "Hey how's it" "Yeah good can't complain." "Cool.....got any STD'S?" "Nope" "Cool."mikew4(277)• Wednesday, 17 April 2019

    If I eat this, will it still love me in the morning?millicraft(311)02:30 pm, Wed, 17 Apr

    I think Milli you need to start refering to your partner by name. Especially in a public forum. No wonder you're wondering if they still love you if you refer to them as "it".mikew4(277)• Wednesday, 17 April 2019

    Are we allowed to call him a dictator?bryantrjjv(63)04:53 pm, Wed, 17 Apr

    Well he'd get real offended if you called him a dick-tater. As fitting as it might be, calling a Kumara a 'Tater will really get his heckles up. Yes he has heckles.mikew4(277)• Wednesday, 17 April 2019

    So, this is a root vegetable?wlw1980(59)05:33 pm, Wed, 17 Apr

    Ah I see what you did there. You humourously incinuated the fact that it's a root, and the fact that it's a vegetable and then alluded to sexual coupling, made relevant by the Kumaras' likeness to a certain appendage used in the act of coupling. Too clever.mikew4(277)• Wednesday, 17 April 2019

    Probably if you smuggled it in your tights on a 13 hour flight to Dubai. And you already had poor circulation and hadn't hydrated sufficiently.mikew4(277)• Wednesday, 17 April 2019

    As a vet Nurse, I feel obliged to tell you that as a responsible breeder, you should consider castration before placing him in his forever home.pet-supplies(3697)08:25 pm, Wed, 17 Apr

    As a Far Northener I can understand the rampaging hordes are to be kept baying (Hawkes Bay-ing & Bay-ing of Plenty) We must keep them feeling secure and not be placing such temptations as your Wonderous Willy in such clear view.... suggestions of such magnitude will bring them near.... speak in whispers my friend.... cloud is building and chill winds bloweth..... may you find your coffers full and your inbox empty.phil1814(351)08:51 pm, Wed, 17 Apr

    Phil you seem really wise. Are you a wizard? Like that guy on Vikings with no eyes who lives in a house made of sticks and sleeps on a pile of dirt. It's really poorly insulated I'd say if he's going to rent it out he's got a lot of remedial work to do.mikew4(277)• Wednesday, 17 April 2019
