Phallic symbol is just the tip of the iceberg

Good heavens! Global warming is having some unexpected effects on icebergs.

Not only do they seem to float like clouds above the sea, but they lie in wait for unsuspecting boats, pretending to be lamb chops:

As if that weren’t enough, they have sharp teeth. Watch out for those fangs!

Perhaps they belong to this melting face. And – oh goodness! – is that his torso there too, or just an arm waving good-bye as he slowly and majestically disappears into the sea?

And finally … OMG! Can this really be a floating phallus? A penice, if you like? Looks like you’ve got a bit of frostbite there, buddy!

Apparently, this iceberg was snapped by professional photographer Andy Rouse in the Bransfield Strait.

I don’t know about you – but I think Mother Nature is trying to tell us something!

    Bad news, sis, Mum has already received the link to your blog, and actually she would laugh!!! it’s Dad who would be embarrassed!!
    I had a good laugh and of course, the heading will encourage us all to read it. The pictures are amazing- just the beautiful colours. Having said that, I am happy to keep memories of snow,blizzards, and sleet in the memory bank and not the current experience bank. But I am sure a trip to Antarctica would be absolutely amazing and apparently the wildlife is amazing. Better win Lotto first………..

    Oh – you Swedes, so cool, so unshockable…

    Kata – Yes, guess Mum would find it amusing!

    DVM’s wife: It certainly looks as if it might be photoshopped, doesn’t it? A little online research showed lots of papers carrying the photo and attributing it to Andrew Rouse … so I’m not sure…
