Many people wonder what, if anything, they will pass on to future generations. One such man with a plan is Sigurdur “Siggi” Hjartarson, the founder and head of the Icelandic Phallological Museum. That’s right. Siggi’s legacy will be penises. Lots of penises. Feel free to laugh at Siggi, but he is serious about his collection, which began in 1974 and now contains more than 280 specimens from 93 different species. But Siggi is missing the one final member that will complete his collection: the human penis.

Fortunately, 95-year-old legendary Icelandic adventurer Pall Arason may come to the rescue. Or, due to Seinfeldian shrinkage, his penis may prove too small to qualify. Enter Tom Mitchell, a Californian, determined that his All-American 7-incher “Elmo” should be the first. Further, he’s willing to donate his penis before he dies. Got all that? If reality is stranger than fiction, then there are times when reality is just plain whacked.

“Side-splittingly funny … underscores, once again, the motto behind the most unique and resonant documentaries: You can't make this stuff up ... The Final Member finds hilarity in humanity.” Eddie Cockrell, Variety
