OK, Conejo is not "Conejo"....or What I Thought it Was!


So, there I was, moseying along in the meat section of my local supermarket yesterday, and basically flipped out when I saw this:



Now, you tell me what YOU think it is upon first glance??? Hmmmmmm?
I couldn't believe it!! I HAD to take a closer look! I pick it up, turn it around in my hands, examining it closely, and I swear, I saw some really familiar landmarks!!
On the package, it's labeled "conejo". I'm thinking, okay, that's similar to cojones, but it's not just the cojones we're looking at here!


conejo

So, I'm standing there awestruck and wondering what animal this big, gigantic, frozen conejo came from! And by the way, this thing is HUGE! And they managed to package and freeze it while still completely erect!!! OMG!!!!

After a few exclamations (out loud) over how crazy it is to find these huge frozen penises in the meat section, I finish my shopping and get on out of there. Still a bit in shock, though! I mean, my neighborhood is very international, with people representing every continent there is, and a myriad of cultures.... so, the culinary offerings here do tend to be extremely varied and exotic. But, WOW!, I've never even seen THIS in the meat section before!!

conejo

Anyway, after I get home I figure, let me Google 'conejo' and see what poor animal they took this thing off of, and Jesus Christ, in what manner do they prepare and serve it!?? omg!
Well, guess what? Turns out that 'conejo' means RABBIT.
Yes. Rabbit. I must now admit to having a seriously dumb moment back there at the supermarket!!! LOL!!! I don't have them often, but DAMN, that was a good one!!! LMAO! It was only rabbit, dammit! Not a big, giant, frozen animal penis like I thought! Duhhhhhhhhh! ;)
I seriously need to brush up on my Spanish!!!

Funny story, diva :)

By the way, I sent an email to you about advertising. Hope you got it.

Daisy said...

Whoa! It doesn't look very rabbit-y!

Nick P. said...

That must have been one hell of a rabbit.

The Fitness Diva said...

Kevin, you just had to be there. I swear!! ;)

Daisy, it sure doesn't!! I'm tempted to buy one just so I can bring it home and figure out how they got it into THAT shape! It's crazy! ;)

lol, Nick. In a rabbit's dreams! ;)

YummY! said...

I would have thought the same thing!

Lynne said...

LOL! I think I would've had the same thought you did! Why didn't the package simply say "rabbit"!

Dhemz said...

lol! conejo is a spanish term for rabbit....lol! in the philippines we call rabbit "kuneho".....thanks for sharing.....:) that was hilarious!

The Fitness Diva said...

Yummy, I'm telling you, there was nothing else that it looked like!

Lynne, I'm thinking somebody back there in packaging had a sense of humor.... or either, I need to get around more and learn some stuff! ;)

Dhemz, thanks for stopping by!
That was a crazy looking kuneho! ;)

Rick said...

Now that's a stimulating, hare-raising tale. :)

Ish said...

this is hilarious, maybe that is another reason why playboy choose the rabbit there logo... ;)

BK said...

LOL! I was almost misled by you too.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Ish said...

Dropping by to say Have a Happy Healthy Holidays to you and your family!

Robin said...

Hi Fitness Diva,
I would of thought the same thing. This was a funny post. Wishing you a Merry Christmas & a very Happy New Year! :-)

The Fitness Diva said...

Ha, nice one, Rick!

Yeah, who knew, Ish? I'll never look at rabbits the same way again! ;)

BK, I think some jokesters back in the meat department must've gotten a little bored on that particular shift. The way they tucked and rolled that thing into shape is NOT natural! LOL!

Same to you, Robin.
I now have so much more respect and admiration for Bugs Bunny... ;)

John @ Family, Fitness and Finances said...

I have to admit, that picture looks more like your first assumption than a rabbit!!! Haha!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous, healthy and happy New Year!

VetTech said...

So thats where the expression "----ing like bunnies" came from LOL!

Mike Golch said...

That was my first thought as well.

Falcao said...

Damn! I can't believe it is a rabbit.

Vera said...

You are right though, those looked like huge ass penises more than rabbits!

Ish said...

Stopping by to say Happy and Healthy 2010 to you and Your family. God bless us all.

Kidgas said...

That is hilarious. I don't know any Spanish and agree that those pictures look exactly as you described.

Thanks for the funny story. It made my day.

The Muscle Feed said...

Would have fooled my too! Funny post.

Eagleval News said...

waooow...just dropping

Azure Islands Designs said...

LOL...that is TOO funny...but...I have to be honest...I was waiting for you to tell me who it came from, not for you to tell me it was a complete animal!!!

All the best to you in the coming year Diva...
Cheers

Custom Labels said...
