See anything interesting in this front cover fold-out image for IKEA’s 2007 product catalogue? My answer: a little child about to snap his neck. I cheered. But apparently, that’s not the answer raising eyebrows in bemused arcs across the internet.
The real answer: a lounging dog sporting a huge, human erection, tautly throbbing against his belly.
IKEA denies that the dog has a human cock. “The picture has definitely not been tampered with,” Debbie McDowell, corporate communications manager for IKEA. “We saw this particular photo when the prints came through here in Canada. …But we can definitely say this is a picture of a dog’s leg, and it is not something else.”
She may have then added that an aroused dog’s erection resembles a gooey, pink, prehensile worm snaking out of its furry loins, and that anyone who has ever seen a dalmatian sport such a monstrosity while rubbing its belly has immediately become a lifelong proponent of neutered canines.
