Oosik (the Walrus penis) Defined

So You Want
to Know What an
Oosik is?

The following poem I had not seen in a long time. That is, until I happened upon another person's web site which quoted it. Read on...it defines the "Oosik" and has a fair amount of fact hidden amongst the fun.


Strange things have been done in the Midnight Sun, 
   and the story books are full---
But the strangest tale concerns the male,
   magnificent walrus bull!
I know it's rude, quite common and crude,
   Perhaps it is grossly unkind;
But with first glance at least, this bewhiskered beast,
   is as ugly in front as behind.
Look once again, take a second look -- then
   you'll see he's not ugly or vile --
There's a hint of a grin, in that blubbery chin --
   and the eyes have a shy secret smile.
How can this be, this clandestine glee
   that exudes from the walrus like music?
He knows, there inside, beneath blubber and hide
   lies a splendid contrivance -- the Oosik!
"Oosik" you say -- and quite well you may,
    I'll explain if you keep it between us;
In the simplest truth, though rather uncouth
   "Oosik" is, in fact, his penis!
Now the size alone of this walrus bone,
   would indeed arouse envious thinking --
It is also a fact, documented and backed,
   There is never a softening or shrinking!
This, then, is why the smile is so sly,
   the walrus is rightfully proud.
Though the climate is frigid, the walrus is rigid,
   Pray, why, is not man so endowed?
Added to this, is a smile you might miss ---
   Though the bull is entitled to bow --
The one to out-smile our bull by a mile
    is the satisfied walrus cow!

Below is a picture of the, at this point, notorious bone. All the ones in gift shops must be around 2 feet long. Surely this must give a little more value to the above poem!
