Puppetry of the Penis, an Australian stage production consisting of two men manipulating their genitals into all manner of amusing shapes, seemed to draw the eye of John Travolta while in the country promoting his film Swordfish, according to MSNBC.com. He said in an interview, “I heard there’s a play in town that’s about talkative wieners.” He found the concept to be “broad-minded,” though he admits, “I just don’t know if I’d star in it”—no doubt owing to a full calendar.
