only a single letter, r... separates the sixteenth-century French word for codpiece from a mere baguette, that faux cod-phallus, crispy and hard on the surface yet so welding at its center?

1) the pinnacle of quality in a particular field

2) slang for male genitals. 

Perhaps by using this term we are comparing it to the rest of the male anatomy, as superior in providing pleasure, or perhaps we are comparing it to other forms of gendered anatomy i.e. the vagina. 



The male of the domestic fowl (along with the bull) has been associated in many lands since ancient times with male vigor and especially the membrum virile, but the exact connection is not clear (the cock actually has no penis) unless it be his role as fertilizer of the domestic hens

Each GIF in the ever-growing series is a representation of a euphemism for the human male phallus that is used within the English lexicon, some lost to time and some more contemporary.  



The Oxford Dictionary of English: "a stupid or contemptible man."

Merriam Webster:"a spiteful or contemptible man often having some authority."

Silverton: "whereas the French place idiocy with the vagina, the Yiddish and English place it with the penis."


Peter Pan 

A nickname for an impotent penis with a play on the memorable tale of Peter pan, and his lack of desire to grow up. 

Peter as a name has been used to refer to a penis, as many names such as Dick. However this was adopted to refer to the pan a sex worker may use to wash a penis, and later adapted. 


Love Truncheon 


An oxymoron of a euphemism, with a truncheon often used by police as a tool for enforcement, and violence, not usually a tool associated with love. It was first used in 1890, along with the term love stick, in My Secret Life, but revived 100 years later by British comedians on TV's Bottom, catapulting it into the contemporary lexicon.
