WHY DO THE BEASTIES HAVE A PENIS IN STORAGE?

Some things are just hard to throw away.

We all have a box, or basement...or a mother's attic filled with crap we'll never use again, but just can't seem to part with.  Like that ash tray you made in third grade even though nobody you knew smoked. That's there.  The stuffed frog you won at Great Adventure?  Gotta keep that.  It cost you thirty bucks, after all.  Ooh, and there's that 20-foot tall penis you were looking for!

 

Wait.  

 

No.


That's the Beastie Boys.  

 

You probably don't remember it, but it was a stage prop they used every time they played "Fight For Your Right (To Party)."  (I looked for video of it for you...couldn't come through.) Adam, Ad-Rock, explains it thusly:

“Seemed funny at the time … [But] you gotta really think before you say or do some dumb s–t,” Horovitz writes of the decision to have the prop created. “Think about the people you care about most. Will they be embarrassed for you, and of you? Yes . . . And you’ll end up paying thirty years’ worth of storage locker fees in New Jersey for a 5-foot-by-5-foot dick in a box.”

 

Well, I mean, you don't HAVE to keep it.
