"Look at this" says Robin pointing at his laptop. This happens a lot since we made the chaplaincy a wireless hotspot.
"That's a great Album" he says pointing to his music.
"Inside a Whale's cock?" I read.
"That's just disturbing" offers Tom.
"To be honest" I reply "I'd find it more disturbing to have a Whale's..."
"Well exactly" says Tom.
"They might not be that Big" suggests Rob.
"Right someone google it" says someone else.
"No" I say. so does everyone else.
"Oh for goodness sake" says Tom googling Whale Penis.
Then he clicks on the first site. Church of the Whale Penis. A group of people who's sole purpose in life they have decided is to be the number one site on google for 'Whale Penis'. So seriously are they about being number one that the registered a web site.
As the former number one site for the words awful and vicar I find I can relate to this. As can everyone else in the room. In fact we find the whole thing utterly hilarious. With comments such as "Look they've actually registered the domain whalepenis.org" and "look at that photo it's so funny" when Karuna (the only woman in the room) cuts in with:
"When you've all quite finished being immature..."
"We're not being immature" someone protests.
"To be fair people" I say "we are all gathered around a laptop giggling at the word 'penis'"
At which point acknowledging the fact that we weren't 14 anymore we all decided to do some work. Tom did some physics. Robin did some geography and Rob did some Maths. I went away and blogged about whale Penises.
I was the most mature person in the room.
