If this thread were an episode of Top Gear, James May would be saying “I think he’s referring to a gentleman’s sausage.”

Actually I've never heard 'organ pipe' refer to anything except, generically, any pipe that's part of a pipe organ (never capitalized), or, a type of cactus . So I've probably no idea what you are talking about...nor why it made you spit your coffee. Nor why the other guy kept writing "Organ Pipe".

I assumed you corrected it to “pipe organ”, as “organ pipe” looked like a possible male reference.

As I missed it the first time around, before your correction, I thought you were being subtle… hence the coffee spit.

You mean a cock?

I've never heard one called, even jokingly, an 'organ pipe'. Double entendres about 'pipe organs' abound, though.

I corrected "Organ Pipe" to "pipe organ" because no one calls a pipe organ an Organ Pipe.

Maybe there are native language issues here. <shrug>

Organ is used as slang and medical term.
And Pipe is also a slang term.

In any case you deadpan correction, tickled my funny bone.

I am not sure what your native language is, but the other poster had their location as Milwaukee, Wisconsin, so I assumed that American (English) would be the native language. Which could be wrong.

Not Wisconsin, but I got a chuckle out of this lyric from a guy in Minnesota

"The phone rings, it's Vicki calling
She wants me to come to the crib
She says conversation's better than being lonely
So I try my best to ad lib
I told the joke about the woman
Who asked her lover "Why is your organ so small?"
He replied "I didn't know I was playing in a cathedral"
Vicki didn't laugh at all"
--Prince, 'Vicki Waiting'
