According to the company’s website, Dicks by Mail offers a service whereby you can send some edible dicks to “anyone in your life that deserves [a] feeling of sadness, disappointment and betrayal.”
It goes on: “In only a few minutes you can send a literal Bag of Dicks to that special asshole in your life. You know the one. The annoying guy at the office. Your Ex who decided to see other people before telling you. The Teacher that doesn’t care about your dead grandma. The person that murdered your grandma.”
4. It’ll cost you $15 (about £10) to tell someone to eat a bag of dicks, along with a note saying, “EAT A BAG OF DICKS.”
A statement on the site says it was “created to put a smile on peoples [sic] faces. It’s not meant to be a threat or a way to bully,” and adds, “If you are sending this with the intent to ruin someones (sic) day, then maybe its you who needs to eat a bag of dicks.”
The first people have received their bags and posted pictures online. An entry on the company’s blog reads, “Apparently one of the first order recipients posted on imgur and a bunch of you idiots ordered bags of dicks for your moms.”
The project obviously bears comparison with the Ship Your Enemies Glitter website, which was set up by 22-year-old Australian Mathew Carpenter. He swiftly sold the site and claimed it was a giant publicity stunt — an interpretation that was subsequently called into question.
The creator of Dicks by Mail has got in touch!
6. The creator of the site is currently operating under the alias “Dick Richards”.
It’s not his real name. He told BuzzFeed News, “It’s an alias to protect my mom. I don’t know how it would go over in her sewing circle.”
We asked him how he came up with idea and he said, “Honestly, I was drunk and a few friends joked about it. I was still a bit drunk the next day and sat down to create the site. Finding high-quality dicks and the proper domain was top priority and screwed up my search history for a long time to come.”
So who is he? Well, he told us he’s a “29-year-old (good-looking and single) bartender in Canada.” He added, “I’ve traveled the world a bit but have always thought of starting my own business. This wasn’t what I thought would make me rich and famous but I guess I’ll embrace the dick fame while it lasts.”
And how’s the site going? He says he only had a few orders in the first few weeks. However, he added, “Due to the response from one of the recipients (a post on Imgur) has stemmed a few thousand orders in just a few days. To give you a bit of an idea of the orders, during this interview [10 minutes] I’ve had 13 more orders.”
