This is a bizarre clip from The Flintstones in which Barney appears to make a penis joke. If this is dubbed, it's seamless. I have no idea what the original context of the show was so I don't exactly know why he says what he says.

After hearing the assessments from the primary teacher, occupational therapist, speech therapist and physical therapist, we got to the part that was a stunner to say the least - the school psychologist.
