A fossil of a small sea creature extracted from a 425-million-year-old British rock formation is the oldest unequivocally male fossil known, researchers say. [...] Details revealed include gills, eyes, limbs designed for swimming and the oldest known male organ in the fossil record. It was this last that led researchers to name the new species, Colymbosathon ecplecticos, which is Greek for "amazing swimmer with large penis."
It's Greek for "gimme some sugar, baby."

The version I saw had the Best Headline Ever: Scientists find 425-million-year-old penis.
Wow... it has its own punchline.
Which part is the penis?
Yeah, someone point to it.
The creature possesses a hard shell, an organ for grabbing prey, six gills, as well as a "copulatory organ [that] is large and stout", says the team. Siveter has found previous record-holding penises. A 100 million-year-old ostracod boasting two penises found in Brazil and analysed by Siveter in 2002, held the record for oldest known members briefly. But this was usurped by another team which discovered a 400 million-year-old sex organ on a fossilized daddy-long-legs in Scotland in summer 2003.
And, of course, since it's fossilized, it's rock hard.
How long before we get spam advertising ways to fossilize your penis?
Huh huh, yeah, yeah, boioioioing! </beavis>
Well, thats not very impressive, I thought maybe it was that big hangy thing on the left of the black and white photo.
