Jon Hamm's penis: everywhere it goes it causes a big hullabaloo. "It's my world," the penis scoffs, studying its reflection in the mounted vanity mirror,"y'all are just living in it."

Now a report says that tensions between Jon Hamm's penis and the cast and crew of Mad Men grew so heated during the filming of season six, a representative for AMC had to intervene and plead with the penis for mercy.

According to the New York Daily News, Jon Hamm "was politely instructed by a staffer at the network" to imprison his penis in a dungeon of underpants while shooting scenes, so that it wouldn't distract from the drama on screen or take someone's eye out. An anonymous "insider" blamed this season's tight, tight trousers:

"This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination."

Of course, as most insiders (and outsiders) know, the entire Mad Men series has taken place in the 1960s. That's kind of Mad Men's "thing." Maybe this is just the first time Hamm's character will appear on screen wearing pants?

The source added that, during previous seasons, Jon Hamm's captivating penis had to be photoshopped out of promotional shots.

"Imagine how distracting that would be on the side of a bus or building."

A representative for Hamm said the claims were "not really funny at all," and since another word for "not funny" is "serious," we guess that means the situation was very serious indeed.

Since filming ended, the penis has presumably once again been given free reign to freeball.
