This Penis-Shaped Eggplant Just Sold for a Stupid Sum of Money

The eggplant emoji doesn't look exactly like a penis. It's just funny, and purple, and the best dick option out there. This actual, real-life eggplant from New Zealand, however, looks exactly like a penis. And that's why it sold for $115.

Yep, someone in New Zealand was willing to pay $115  for a "freshly picked phallic aubergine" that's "totally organic" in an online auction. Take a look at the complete package:

But the winning bidder of this "Erotic Eggplant" won't just get a modern-day art piece; he/she is also supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand, which will receive all the proceeds from the one-of-a-kind auction.

There are also lots of questions about fertilizer. It's a fun time. Enjoy.
