Interchangeable Orifices

It’s really pretty strange how similar our various openings are. The vagina and mouth are compared pretty constantly, from decidedly vulvaphobic vagina dentata myths to the fact that the labia are called labia. And now, from Boing Boing, this. Photoshopped pictures of cultural icons who’ve undergone virtual surgery, replacing their eyes with twin clones of their mouths. They’re both revolting and magnetic. Mostly revolting.


Any other Sandman fans will surely be sharing my flashbacks to the Corinthian.

    I think it would be hard not to find that symbolically significant.
