In early May, an iceberg discovered in Newfoundland’s Iceberg Alley was photographed by Ken Pretty, a photographer from the Canadian town of Dildo. Yep, you read that right. And the town of origin is not the only innuendo in this story. Pretty’s 30-foot iceberg (which is not the iceberg pictured in the featured photo), the Internet agrees, looks uncannily like a massive dildo.
According to the New York Post, “Pretty noticed the boner berg as he flew his drone off the coast of Newfoundland in an area known, appropriately, as Conception Bay.”
“Only in Newfoundland,” he laughed in his interview with The Guardian. “Looking from the land, it wasn’t quite clear. But once I got the drone out there, it was unreal how much it looked like — well, you know…”
Only a month later, a Quebec sex toy company, DeeVa Toys, has quickly made use of the news. Working with Zulu Alpha Kilo, DeeVa Toys has produced a replica of the phallus-shaped iceberg that made international headlines, the so-called “Dickie Berg,” and is currently taking orders via Indiegogo.
Canadian news source, The Message, reports that “The Dickie Berg is one of an estimated 40,000 medium- to large-sized icebergs calved from Greenland glaciers each year, although, according to Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism, only between 400 and 800 actually manage to make it to the province’s waters.”
“There have been many sensational and humorous headlines surrounding this iceberg,” saysDeeVa Toys president Tom Ashcroft. “We created The Dickie Berg to bring attention to this in a lighthearted way.”
According to The Message, DeeVa Toys shares that “the toy has been ‘masterfully sculpted’ from eco-friendly silicone and, like an iceberg, is fully submersible in water.
“The company is currently selling a single Dickie Berg for $92, but has also come up with variations—including a threesome set for $221, a “swingers” set of five for $346, or, for those feeling particularly amorous, an “orgy” set of 10 for $638. All of the proceeds will go towards non-profits fighting climate change.”
