Illusion or Protrusion?


A reader sends in this new advertisement of the athletically-inclined Manning family but notes a strange silhouette in (the left guy) Peyton Manning's jock area. The question: Is there something aside from two hot jock boys with milk on their faces to get hot over, or are we just overly horny this sports-infused Thanksgiving weekend? Like the Camel cigarette ads with the subliminal penises in them, we may never know what's intended. But if it was their agenda to get noticed, I guess it worked, huh? At least it gives you something to do this Friday.
(thanks Adam)

And if you're looking for something super butch, check the Saw Hoss ad to the right.

  1. It does put one in the mood for a nice, creamy glass of milk. ;) So I guess it did the trick!

  2. Well, if you click on the picture and make it bigger (so to speak), it actually looks like the crease in his pants (sort of like Bush's bulge). So, it ain't all that! That said - Eli's cuter anyway! yeehaa

  3. yeah.....just a crease, but a good optical illusion. The material in football pants is pretty they wear a jockstrap and maybe even a cup. No chance of seeing so much detail through all that !

  4. I guess we'll look for it anywhere won't we?

  5. I wouldn't mind being in the middle of a Peyton/Eli sandwich! Now that's a meal fit for a Man.

    And since this is a photo shoot, I doubt that they are wearing a jock or a cup. You can see usually see the outline of a jock especially when a football player is wearing white pants.

    Anyone remember the shot of Chris Simms when he was the QB of Texas and the cover boy of The Sporting News (or was it SI?) You could definitely see the outline of the whole package in that shot (white pants, no jock).

  6. I do not remember the shot of Chris Simms but I would love to see it if you can tell me how to do that. My mouth is still drooling from Peyton Manning's whatever.

  7. I agree with Layne that I doubt the boys are wearing their full regalia for the photo shoot. It was obviously a set-up pose and my assumption would be that they wouldn't need to wear a jock strap for a photo shoot. Sometimes these shoots go on for hours so why wear the protection if all they're doing is standing up and smiling for the camera. The "folds" in the material look pretty close to the outline of someone's penis. Look closely. Anyway... just some thoughts.

  8. I don't care--works for me! When's his next game?

  9. The guy's not wearing a jock - the overal impression in the crotch area is completely different from the other player on the right. Why would he need to wear a jock for this studio picture? Of course it's his penis, why would you think it isn't? The assumption that it would be "airbrushed" out is unrealistic.

  10. Peyton Manning, homophobe, idol of right-winger nutbags everywhere.

  11. The milk ad is great - and now there's a new one out the Peyton are doing for Louisiana tourism and there's an even better defined bulge showing on Peyton.

  12. Does anybody still doubt if Peyton is gay? I don't. Many married men are either gay or bi. He is definitely gay.

  14. I remember the Chris Simms photo well - it was in the Sporting News. Too bad the link didn't work, at least for me.
