I may have 4.

Give others a chance and then we'll compare notes.

Was looking at Flightradar just now and spotted two Welsh Air Ambulance helicopters landing at two different hospitals. They had taken off from two sites.

One went to a children's hospital and the other to one with a specialist major trauma unit. Worrying times.

My phallographi is proper art because sometimes I do it in galleries.
One inadvertently stumbled upon this and thought surely of interest. :)

An April, 2017 article from the New York Times:

Phallus Art Brings Luck in Bhutan — and Tourists, Too

LOBESA, Bhutan — For centuries, Bhutan has celebrated the phallus.

They are painted on homes, or carved in wood, installed above doorways and under eaves to ward off evil, including one of its most insidious human forms, gossip. They are worn on necklaces, installed in granaries and in fields as a kind of scarecrow. They are used by masked jesters in religious festivals and at one temple near here in Lobesa as a blessing of fertility.

Now, as Bhutan increasingly opens up to the world, the ancient tradition has been evolving or, some say, sullied — by commercialization.

Though still a religious symbol, it has become, to some, a relic of a patriarchal past, something vaguely embarrassing and not fit for the modern new democracy that has, by all appearances, taken firm root in Bhutan after decades of relative isolation and absolute monarchy.

It has also become a curio to peddle in all sizes and colors to the increasing number of tourists visiting this remote Himalayan kingdom, renowned for its pursuit of “gross national happiness.”

I know he's an old lovey and a national treasure but I really hope a polar bear punched him back - just to shut him him the shouty old tosser.

He sparked it on the nose to dissuade it from eating him .. fair play in my book ..

I think a lot of Brian. He could tell tall tales all day long.
Of course Brian could have lied about that anecdote but my gut instinct says he didn't .. I wasn't there ..

And Wode tales too, by the look of him.
He's theatrical .. I still like to think his stories are true though .. I've had unbelievable stuff happen to me that I wouldn't blame people for not believing.
