'Unfortunate' photo wasn't tampered with: IKEA

An IKEA catalogue with a photo that appears to show a dog with a larger-than-normal, human-like appendage has not been tampered with, according to the furniture giant's Canadian office.
The first photo in the 2007 catalogue -- a two-page, front-cover foldout -- shows a young family lounging on a bed with a dog.
The dog, which appears to be a greyhound or whippet, seems to have one distinctly human male characteristic, prompting some to suggest the image had been tampered with by a mischievous employee using a program such as Photoshop.
Ikea Canada says that's simply not the case.
"The picture has definitely not been tampered with," Debbie McDowell, corporate communications manager for the Swedish retailer's Canadian office told CTV.ca.
She said the photo was shot in Sweden, where the catalogues are put together.... continued here... (ps. thanks Victoria for bringing this to my attention!)

This is way better than the old penis in the palm tree Zoodles can of yesteryear... (I actually looked at this upsidedown once from where it was stored in what we called "the Ikea cupboard" in our family home. Coincidence?) It did really and truly look like a penis.

I also found the image of "sex" in the dust in the Disney movie Lion King - so I assure you it is there...it is blatantly there - there is no room for contention on this. Take my word for it. Or if you need to see for yourself - you unbeliever see below. Disney still acts like maybe it was just a coincidence but I have a feeling that someone got their ass canned over that...ha ha - get it - sort of a reference to the "can" above... (groan)

Good grief woman, you're finding sex and penises everywhere!

Good girl ;-)

That dog looks freaky though, don't you think?

Slyde said...

yes, i had seen that part of lion king already...

Also, on one of the Aladin videos, one of the castle spires was drawn as a penis... my friend brought his daughters copy in and it is quite clear... i'm sure someone got fired for that one as well...

Hey Liz, how come the kids toes are light blue, as is the paint on the wall. They must have painted the room after the picture????

elizabeth said...

stef - What a pervert, hey?

Slyde - yes, now that you mention it - I do recall hearing that somewhere...

Carrie - You are correct. Isn't that odd? (Thanks for popping in - how are ya? And what are you doing home??)

Kat said...

Yes, I've seen all of these. Although, the dog penis? Very questionable. Looks like a blob to me, or his leg folded. I dunno about penis.

I have this Ka-zar comic book from the 60's that I only bought because the artist had hidden the work "FUCK" on the front cover in response to the Comics Code Authority. It's actually kinda lame!

Hey Slyde, did you check out the hog on that dog?

okay, i'm way way back at the starting line on this one. the ikea picture is disturbing even BEFORE you pointed out the anatomical ridicularity of the dog's hoo-ha (yes, technical reference). I hate shots like those, I mean what family lounges like that? Who the hell wants all those people snuggled up against them while the sun is shining through the window? I need some damn personal space up in here! oh, sorry...i guess i was projecting...

Hey Liz...another penis shot happens in "The Little Mermaid" During the wedding ceremony the priest is drawn with an erection inside his pants and then the next frame shows that it is gone. Very obvious once you notice it!

...priests and erections....not so funny....

elizabeth said...

Get out! Never heard that one before... I'll have to watch in to see...

wv - jubli

Stef said...

I want screen shots!

Stef said...

Apparently it's the priest's knee...

elizabeth said...

Again - my research dept. astounds and amazes me. (I'm going to have to start paying you soon)

Oracle said...

the original cover of the little mermaid has a penis on it. oh and in aladdin when aladdin is on the balcony with the tiger he says "down raga take of your shitrt"

elizabeth said...

Ah. Much research I see I must do.
