Duck penises are just as crazy.

Ah, legitimate rape in the animal kingdom.

"Ducks are known for their bizarre penises, stretching up to 20cm in size in an anti-clockwise spiral. That's an impressive organ for a bird often only 60cm long. The females, on the other hand, have vaginas that spiral clockwise, opposite to their menfolk. Ducks also engage in what is politely termed "forced copulation", where the male ducks attempt non-consensual sex with the female, and explosively extend their penises with a technique that takes less than half a second."

@1 Shouldn't that be "quazy"?

3, Who cares where that quote is from, watch as Isabella Rossellini explains how ducks do it!

@5 Bless that woman and her bizzarro nature documentarettes! I love them!

Also, hasn't the slog already covered the "genital arms race" of the ducks? Now, octopus sex, that's a stranger article worth revisiting!…

I say Goldy, because he strikes me as a RadioLab fan. Go listen to RadioLab's episode titled "sperm" to have your mind blown. (he he, get it?)

You guys never come back to say who any of these were, so I'm boycotting, hear me? Boy. Cotting.

Oops I did indeed forget the link, sorry @3.…

Pigs penises are spirals too.

All "Overheard in the Office" posts are from Charles, so no worries, gus.

@11, WRONG! It was Goldy. In fact, I was going to do a follow up Overheard: "Why does Charles always get all the credit for the awful stuff I say?" complete with a poll between Charles and Goldy.

But then I got lazy.

Well, it was a good theory. I'm glad to have at least one of these answered. Now maybe gloomy gus will lift the boycott...

Thanks for the follow-up, Cienna. I came back today to see what the answer was.
