B(oobs) & P(enis)

In the book Trivium: The Classical Liberal Arts of Grammar, Logic & Rhetoric whose opening section is on euphonics, I couldn't help focusing on this particular insight.

The letter P - which is said to refer to the paternal, patriarchal, element - is rather shaped like a hardened penis together with its testicles.

The letter B which is said to be binary actually looks somewhat like a pair of breasts or boobs (a bosom) or even a a pair of buttocks known as a bottom.
