I could eat a nob at night

In listening to the Ricky Gervais podcast, I learned that Brits like to call dicks “nobs.” But I watched Love Actually the other day (actually, the commentary) and saw that Colin yells, “And he’s got a big nob” (about himself) as he enters the gate for his plane to Milwaukee. Okay.

Calling their dicks nobs only perpetuates the stereotype that British men have small penises. I mean, a nob. A door (k)nob? Nob brings up pictures of short, chode-like objects, which is not good when discussing the male anatomy.

    Laura thought “I could eat a nob at night” was a porn thing.

    Gotta love her.

    Anonymous left the best comment ever! What he doesn’t know is that I’m a complete Anglophile who would do a British guy any way he likes if he spoke the whole time.

    I always refere to my nob as a nob. It’s an honest word, Im not trying to prove anything. American men use words like dick and cock because their harsher more masculine words, most likely because they have small nobs.

    I must have missed that one.

    Holy crap! I loved that episode of The Ricky Gervais podcast. Goodness. Did you catch the aftermath of that, with all the great song remixes submitted with that? What a great podcast, by the way. I listen to it on the treadmill in the mornings, and there’s been a few times where I just had to stop, I was laughing so hard.
