    So says the note on this 18th or 19th century cooking item that is currently on display at a local museum.

    So what do you think? Phallic cakes?

    Oh, I've seen those before. I always joked that they were bed pans for men. The round ones, of course, are bed pans for ladies.
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    Yeah, my first thought was that it was a chamber pot.

    How big is it? I mean, the potential uses differ based on whether it's 6" long or 18" long.
