Sarah Silverman Can Turn Your Mouth Into A Vulva

Sarah Silverman thinks that “being comfortable and vocal with your body” is a good thing – and I can’t say I disagree. Yet Silverman, who has never let ideas about “appropriateness” sway her, once again takes this comfort to the next level. Last week on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Silverman shared her favorite new camera trick with the audience.

Bound to entertain pubescent boys (and perhaps the occasional adult who dabbles in the “dirty”) for decades to come, the trick involves photographing someone’s mouth in such a way that it resembles a vulva. Check out the video for a full how-to: Sarah Silverman’s iPhone Vulva Craft (thanks to Gizmodo for the tip).

While I got quite a kick out of this, I was sad to see them blur out the image on the phone. Obviously if the image were of an actual vulva, I could understand the need to censor…but this was a photograph of a mouth. Why not just let us laugh? I’ll also say Sarah Silverman certainly isn’t the first person to come up with this trick…just spend a little time with my old friend Google, and you’ll get the hint.
