This image makes me go a big rubbery one.

What does a "big rubbery one" mean?
Underground temples? Some kingdoms have many including mine where private entertainment is provided :)

Well, sire, it seems that a "big rubbery one" is the best sign that a man is ready for the private entertainment awaiting in thy underground temples...

For a place that wasn't driven by religious fervour, this temple in the photo is pretty amazing handywork. "Enthusiasts" indeed! I agree with Monsieur Beep: it makes me go "enthusiastic" too. :-)
One can just imagine the, um, "rituals" starting!

Actually, this single photo can not convey the magnificence of the place. It is nine temples, on five levels, a total of 300,000 cubic feet, and hundreds of meters of tunnels.

Walls, floors and ceilings decorated with detailed murals, mosaics, statues, secret doors and stained glass windows.

It's a project of a 57-year-old former insurance broker. Created in secrecy during 1977-1992.

Here's another photo.

I don't think I originated that, so my permission isn't necessary. :)

No, wasn't it one of the Hive Mind who said it first, here anyway?

To King Zod:
I quote from "urbandictionary.com":
This term is a combination of two concepts. The first is the wanking motion that people make when something is over the top (a more explicit version of rolling one's eyes). The second is a physiological phenomenon that occurs when a male wanks off too fast, and the result is thick, and somewhat rubbery. The latter phenomenon implies that the response to the over-the-top nature of the person eliciting the response is very powerful.

I must admit, I only had a vague idea of the meaning before I googled the phrase and found this more precise definition.

Aha!
I was sure it referred to a semi-erection, but I was confused about the verb "go", it should have been "grow" or "get". With this other definition it makes more sense.

One more topic-related comment:
The chinese terracotta army is really fascinating, too. Unbelievable, how the artists baked human features with such a subtlety and precision out of the earth (terracotta, ital. "baked earth", Wikipedia), and thus by the thousands!

The photograph reflects a tranquil, peaceful, and beautiful aura. Italy is a very nice place. Eolake please post more photographs like this.

So, "*** makes me go a big rubbery one" has its place in the sophisticatd insult thread then? I'm off to post it before anybody, um, BEATS me to it! ;-)

Somehow "go" works better for me, too. Maybe the one who originated it here simply misheard it, but to me "go a big rubbery one" is...shall we say, more evocative.

Interesting bit of trivia: Rumour is that John C. Holmes' drug problem was so bad he wasn't actually fully hard in a lot of his movies, and did the whole thing with just a semi-erect rubbery one!

It looks like the perfect place for wild, crazy orgies and secret human sacrifices.
