Penis Museum Donation Attracts Global Attention

Published April 13, 2011

The Icelandic Phallological Museum – known by most as the penis museum – has received global attention with the first donation of a human specimen. Overlooked, however, is the donor himself – a self-described Nazi sympathiser.
In a recent article from the Associated Press, the penis donor – Páll Árason – is described as “an attention seeker,” with museum curator Sigurður Hjartason saying of him, “He liked to be in the limelight, you know? He was a funny guy. He was a boaster, a braggart … he liked to be provocative.”
Left out of this description is the fact that one of the many things Páll was known for was being an avowed Nazi sympathiser, with a special hatred for Africans and Jewish people.
In the following clip, unfortunately in Icelandic, rapper Erpur Eyvindarson – better known as Blaz Roca – interviews Páll, where he says in part, “I don’t want to kill anything except blacks and Jews.” He later grows tired of Erpur’s line of questioning and walks out of the interview.
Páll’s penis is now on display at the Phallological Museum.
