Above you will see some promotional material for Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, which will run June 1 through 26 in Forest Park. Admission is free!

But for real now: Is that thing a bong, or what?


1. It looks like a bong.

2. Midsummer has an extended plot point in which the queen falls in love with man cursed with the head of a donkey. Clearly, drugs are involved.

3. It, like, really looks like a bong.

4. "Greenshow 6:30 p.m.," the ad says. GREEN show? More like 4:20 p.m., AMIRIGHT?

5. Look at that dead lady at the bottom. A tragic victim of marijuana poisoning, no doubt!

A Google image search, which pulls "visually similar images" when one searches a picture, does not think this is a bong, but more likely a man's ding-dong:


That is, of course, a ridiculous and juvenile assessment. Shame on you for such childishness, Google. 

It's obviously a bong.
