Mel Brooks is a prophet: Front Hole and other parts of the anatomy.

I saw this excerpt from the Healthline website being passed around in the interwebs.

Although they are being stupidly serious, my brain brought back a hilarious scene from Mel Brook’s High Anxiety. Unfortunately I could not find a clip of that particular part so I need to set up the joke: Dr Thorndyke is giving a speech at a medical convention and as such the terms used are plain and maybe not the best around polite company. A doctor arrives late towing 2 young girls and apologizes for not finding a babysitter. The rest is comedy gold:

 

Dr. Thorndyke, you mentioned in your address that penis envy should be deemed an antiquated psychiatric concept. Could you expand on that?

THORNDYKE: Of course. Let’s remember that the term “penis envy” was created in a predominantly male atmosphere…

MAN: Excuse me. Sorry I’m late. Forgive me for bringing the kids. I couldn’t get a sitter.

THORNDYKE: Please, have a seat. As I was saying, in a world of predominantly male-oriented psychology, it was only natural to arrive at the term, pee… (looks at the kids) Pee…”Peepee envy. ”

-Are you saying there’s absolutely no validity to…peepee envy?

-It has no more validity than if a man envied a woman’s…balloons.

-Dr. Thorndyke, do you feel that the trauma of toilet training has a bearing on the sexual future of the adolescent?

-Toilet training. That’s a vast area. Let’s be more specific. Are we talking about number one or cocky-doody?

-For argument’s sake, let’s say cocky-doody.

THORNDYKE: I’d say professionally, cocky-doody has very little to do with the future sexual development of the adolescent.

-Thank you.

-You’re welcome. Let me backtrack for a second. The female erogenous zone.

-You mean the balloons?

-No. Lower, much lower. Where the babies come out. The woowoo.

-The woowoo?

THORNDYKE: Yes. The woowoo. Perhaps the most significant
psychological feminine component known to mankind.

(Cheers and whistles)

A joke in a movie from 1977 is now on its way to become political dogma in the human anatomy.

Mel Brooks is a frigging genius!

  1. But the motivation in that scene was not exposing small children to adult material. Today the motivation is humoring delusions.

    And as has been pointed out elsewhere, “front hole” isn’t even accurate, as the urethra is in front of the vagina.

    1. Both correct points.

      Hell, these days there seems to be a discernible drive — not just a lack of sheltering or an easing of self-censorship, a definite drive — to expose younger and younger children to sexually-charged, if not sexually-explicit (though that line is becoming increasingly blurred), language and content.

      Pair that with the normalization of paedophilia in Hollywood and television productions, and you get a media cocktail that if created and administered by a parent would be chargeable as “contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor”. But because it’s the Harvey Weinsteins of the world putting it together, it’s all cool, right?

      As the father of a young girl, I’m finding it harder and harder to keep the culture from exposing her to adult concepts — primarily but not exclusively regarding sexuality — before I think she’s ready, and that’s an area that I absolutely will not cede to the mainstream.

  2. When I was still working as a medic, I also taught college classes. One class I taught was anatomy. A female student once filed a sexual harassment complaint because I used the word vagina in class to describe female genitalia. Never mind that it was on the power point supplied by the textbook publisher. Never mind that it is in the text and on the state paramedic exam. She was offended.

    So I was called into the school administrator’s office and instructed to use the word “vajayjay” instead. I refused, pointing out that using the medically correct term is more legally defensible than using colloquial terms.

    I was told that I would not be teaching at that school again.
