A boat bumper in the shape of buttocks.

If you haven't figured it out by now, here it is in brief.

For those of you that know nothing about boating, join the club. If it floats and holds people I assume its a boat. However, I do know that boat owners keep from gorging their hulls by tying "boat bumpers" to the rails on sides of the vessel. These bumpers are hung over the sides of the boat to prevent scrapage(???) and damage.

I was awakened suddenly last night in a cold sweat with the following idea.... How about making those bumpers in the shape of a butt and call them "Butt-Docks"

       I like it, being a boating novice myself, this idea would appeal to both the boating boffin and the everyday citizen.. it would provide protection for their boats' tender areas; while simply creating endless hilarity to those who just find a back-side shaped bumper funny!..

       Welcome to the HB, [FireLilly]. Have a bun, for the idea but also for "If it floats and holds people I assume its a boat." +

       Whatever floats your boat.

       Alternately, they could also be shaped like boobs.

       First idea huh? Welcome. Go back to sleep, it's all a dream. There is no place called the halfbakery.   

       There sometimes is a strange thing that happens to bakers. It's called an idea after a "pun thought". Whereas one suddenly thinks of a sort of, kind of, pun on words, and then invents an idea to bring the pun to life. Which came first, the pun or the idea.   

       Don't fret, we have all been victims of the autopunner...even those of us you might consider your elders.

       Incidentally, you've hit entirely the wrong idea category. This idea does not appear to have anything to do with skiing.

       Rectum?...damn near capsized'em.   

       Fun, but probably will fade like the pet rock.

       Could this be adapted for cars, tastefully positioned around the exhaust pipe?
pertinax, Jan 04 2007

       Blissmiss. If the idea is the chicken and the pun is the egg. I guess the egg came first.
FireLilly, Jan 04 2007

       You can get something similar for your car (see linky).

       Why, oh why, did I click that link?

       The predecessor was the bust of the figurehead.
normzone, Jan 04 2007

       shapu, I had no idea that a squirrel's head was so closely attached to its nuts.
po, Jan 04 2007

       [po], how do you think the squirrel /eats/ his nuts if he can't get his head near them?   

       [2_fries]: brilliant.   

       [twitch]: Why make [FireLilly] be the butt of your negativity? Gary Dahl (of Pet Rock fame) made millions in the fall of 1975... Couldn't she, too, benefit from her silly fad?

       Man that link is gross. Good way to diet. Visit the bakery right before dinner.
blissmiss, Jan 05 2007

       But the bumpers are already pretty much in the shape of a barrel...   

       Ohh... A buttock shaped butt-dock...   

       //Incidentally, you've hit entirely the wrong idea category. This idea does not appear to have anything to do with skiing.// So far I've been unable to find any "boat" related category. As much as I'd like to get my chronometer idea out of the Sport:Water category, there is so far no right category to put it in.
