Silly Putty Exiting a Shotgun Looks Just Like a Tiny Dildo

Silly Putty does not make for a very effective projectile, and I’m also guessing it wouldn’t make for a particularly effective dildo, either. Yet somehow here it is, trying to be both.

TAOFLEDERMAUS is a YouTube channel that exists solely to shoot weird shit out of guns. Weird shit like pieces of quartz, slugs made of toilet paper, or magnetic buckshot. But the most unintentionally comedic thing to ever careen out of one their many firearms at a few hundred miles per hour our has to be a gob of Silly Putty stuffed into a glass tube.

At that speed the glass container almost instantly shatters, but the putty—having the wonderfully weird properties of a non-Newtonian fluid—retains its shape, which is undeniably dick-like.

It’s not accurate. It’s probably not much more dangerous that a rubber bullet. But my god, it is deeply entertaining to watch.

Fun fact: Silly Putty came from a failed attempt to make artificial rubber during WW-II after Japanese advancement in the Pacific cut off sources of natural rubber. One particular batch failed to harden, remaining pliable and bouncy. A toy store owner happened across a sample and marketed it as a toy, and the rest is history. Silly Putty was a big deal in the ‘5os when I was a kid; it was the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer, and kept kids occupied for hours. In addition to bouncing and stretching it would pick up color ink from newspapers, letting you make stretchy versions of your favorite characters.
