Like Bruce Hornsby once so eloquently put it, that's just the way it is, folks. You had to learn sometime.
Don't believe us? Here are 20 not-so-subtle examples of phallic movie stills that will have you saying to yourself, "Wow, I didn't realize that Jean-Claude Van Damme with a Jheri curl could get any creepier."

When someone recreates an iconic role, one of the questions remains the same: What did the first guy think?
In the case of "Conan the Barbarian," the answer is decidedly positive.
"I was excited to find out that he actually watched it and liked it a lot," Jason Momoa tells NextMovie of Arnold Schwarzenegger's reaction. "He was proud of me and thought I did a good job."
The warm-fuzzy feeling, however, cannot be mutual. The "Game of Thrones" star has yet to watch the former Governator in action. Get More »
For the last few months, fans have been talking about little other than the upcoming kid-on-kid violence in the big screen adaptation of "The Hunger Games," which features teen heroine Katniss Everdeen fighting to the death against the brutal Cato, the vicious Clove, the hulking Thresh and the clever Foxface.
