A group of passionate nature enthusiasts has initiated a project that ingeniously combines their dedication to sexual positivity and the urgent cause of climate change, inspired by the infamous phallic iceberg. The enormous icy formation, resembling a genital organ, was ironically discovered near the town of Dildo in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Swiftly earning the nickname “Dickie Berg” from the excited local residents, this towering 30-foot icy phallus has become a symbol of intrigue and amusement. However, a concerned collective of conservationists based in Toronto has taken a proactive stance by establishing “The Dickie Berg” project, aiming to raise awareness about the pressing issues of our time.
A spokesperson for the group, referring to themselves as “Nature Lovers,” stated, “We are a collective of creative individuals from Canada, primarily consisting of Millennials and Gen Z. When we first laid eyes on the Dickie Berg, we couldn’t help but share a collective chuckle. We realized that Mother Nature, in her own peculiar way, had presented us with a humorous spectacle.”
The spokesperson further emphasized the deeper significance behind their initiative, saying, “While it serves as a reminder of our collective immaturity, it also serves as a stark testament to the impact of climate change on our planet. Unfortunately, the rising global temperatures are accelerating the melting of our glaciers and icebergs. It sparked an idea within us: ‘Why not leverage this extraordinary occurrence for a greater purpose?'”
Thus, the group conceived an unconventional fundraising venture. “Our generation has the power to vote with our wallets,” they explained. “We saw an opportunity to combine entertainment and philanthropy, focusing on the intersection of climate change and sexual positivity—two crucial topics for our age group. Consequently, 100% of the profits generated from this initiative will be allocated to combating climate change. The specific projects and causes will be decided collectively by our backers once the project is successfully funded.”
To amplify their message and garner support, the Gen Z conservationists have launched an Instagram page dedicated to the project, along with a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. The spokesperson expressed confidence in the project’s success, stating, “We firmly believe that this venture strikes a harmonious balance between entertainment and philanthropy. If we cannot save the planet solely with our intellect, we are determined to make an effort with our creative and unconventional approach.”
The phallic iceberg, captured on film by local resident Ken Pretty using a DJI Mini 2 drone on 27 April, garnered international attention. Ken shared, “From the land, the resemblance wasn’t immediately apparent, but as soon as I flew the drone closer, it became undeniable. The resemblance was uncanny.” Regrettably, the bulbous head of the iceberg collapsed the following day.
During spring, icebergs frequently grace the coast of Newfoundland, attracting numerous tourists. These majestic ice formations break away from Greenland’s vast ice sheet and journey down the Atlantic Ocean. However, recent years have witnessed an alarming acceleration in the melting of the ice sheet, with climate change identified as a significant contributing factor.
