You Can't Do That On Television

I had been wondering when penis-enlargement infomercials would be on late night TV. It seemed inevitable that it would happen sooner or later.
So it wasn't much of a surprise when I was channel surfing and saw the advertizement for ExtenZe, starring Ron Jeremy, one of the ugliest porn stars I have ever seen.

The thing that got me the most was that they never said the word "penis".
They didn't even use a euphemism like "schlong", "tool", or "member". They kept saying phrases like "that certain part of the male anatomy" and "that certain male body part" over and over again, until it became ridiculous.

"Men all over the world can now enlarge their certain male body part by up to 23%!"
Is "penis" a dirty word and nobody bothered to tell me?
You can't say "penis" on TV?

I've never worried about the size of mine. I like it, and I haven't had any complaints.
And I'm definitely not a size queen. Plus, if it's that massive, like a baseball bat, what in the hell are you going to do with it?
