Whalephant Whale bone porn’ at Vancouver museum should be censored, says offended mom

The saucy scrimshaws included in a new exhibit at the Vancouver Maritime Museum are making waves among some visitors.

The Tattoos & Scrimshaw: The Art of the Sailor exhibit includes about two dozen carvings in sperm whale teeth dating back to the mid-19th century. Some are depictions of sexual acts, while others are carved with romantic poems, dedications to long-lost loves, “a peep at the mermaid,” words expressing sailors’ longing for land, and more than a few topless ladies.
