Pete Rose Has A Fantastic, and NSFW Way To Describe Joe DiMaggio’s Manhood

December 9, 2010 – 6:30 am by Eric Schmoldt

Say what you want about Pete Rose, the former Cincinnati Reds player and manager can tell a mighty good story.

In the following one, he recants a tale about baseball great Joe DiMaggio and a trip the two of them and a few others took to Vietnam at one point. Let’s just say it involves the two of them in a jungle at a point where DiMaggio needs to take a shower.

And Rose has quite the interesting way of explaining it.

Pete Rose joined 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia with Mike Missanelli to discuss the interesting experience he shared with Joe DiMaggio in Vietnam.

On the trip:

“In 1967, I get a call from the state department and a guy identifies himself and he says, ‘Would you like to go to Vietnam?’ I said, ‘Not necessarily. In ’67?’ He said, ‘Well, Joe DiMaggio’s going.’ So five of us went over to Vietnam and we went to Saigon and met up on the Intrepid in Tonkin Bay. And we were there for 23 days. Now we’re down in the middle of the jungle, it’s hot, it’s so hot you can’t sleep, there’s a war going on, you can see the helicopter and every fourth bullet is a tracer. We’re up on a hill and there’s a valley and the other hill is where the war’s going on. And Joe says, ‘Man, I’ve gotta take a shower.’ I said, ‘Joe, we’re out in the middle of the jungle, what do you mean you’ve got to take a shower?’ He said, ‘I don’t give a damn, I’m Joe D and I’ve gotta take a shower.’ And the only way you can take a shower, Mike, is they have these big bamboo bags, like, and somebody’s got to get on a chair and pour the water and pull a rawhide thing and the water comes through and the guy takes a shower. So I saw everything that Marilyn Monroe saw. Now, when I tell people the best way to describe Joe DiMaggio, he was a penis with a man hanging from it. … Does that give you a better perspective?”

  3. And they say gays are always looking at dudes in the shower. This proves you straight guys DO look! It’s just a penis, man. Look, and be proud!
    This does not mean you’re queer. Get over it.
