The important reason Manu Feildel is creating penis-shaped culinary masterpieces.

For some reason, phallic shaped things that are phallic shaped by accident, always evoke a giggle.

Childish? Well, yes. Funny? Also yes.

The NSW town of Newcastle for example, recently removed this from their harbour foreshore…

Newcastle's infamous penis tower.

We're pretty sure it's because it's phallic shaped and was referred to by locals as the "penis tower"...? We can safely assume that's not what the architect had in mind.

So imagine our delight when Manu Feildel posted this on his Instagram.

MANU! ARE YOU AWARE THAT LOOKS LIKE A PENIS?!

Turns out, when you actually read his caption, he created said phallic culinary masterpiece - on purpose.

Quick side note: while we're on the topic of funny food... post continues after video.

He's helping to raise awareness about prostate, testicular, penile, bladder and kidney cancer. All of those cancers that occur "under the belt" if you will.

"We all talk about cancers, but I think people don't like to talk about these kinds of cancers...about their genitals," Manu explained.

"Ladies are more at ease to talk about it then men.

"Men are more shy about it I suppose."

Manu continued: "Men and their private parts...they're always just talking about size or whatever. It's a fun topic to take the mickey out of each other, but if a man has an issue with it, it's harder to bring up."

The My Kitchen Rules judge is one of a list of local and international top chefs that have lent their expertise to the Australian New Zealand Urogenital and Prostate Cancer Trial Group (ANZUP).

Here are some of the other... masterpieces:

Feelin’ mah balls? ???????? . . These are my delicious Vietnamese Meatballs - Xui Mai! . . A very popular dish perfect for any meal of the day. My balls are made with a mixture of pork, shrimp and chopped-up jicama. The jicama provides a very subtle crunch to the meatballs, as well as keeping the meatballs moist. . . You can eat these meatballs in a baguette with coriander, cucumber and pickled vegetables, butter and pâté or simply tear a piece of the baguette and dip it into the delicious sauce of Xiu Mai meatballs and all their juices. It’s sure to get those taste buds salivating and satisfied! . . I’ve created this #RudeFood dish in support of @anzuptrials, who conduct life-saving clinical trial research to help treat cancers affecting the kidney, prostate, testicles and bladder. . As a guy, I don’t often think about issues such as testicular cancer because it hasn’t happened to me. But it’s alarming to know that testicular cancer is the second most common cancer affecting young men aged between 18 and 39. . . I wanted to get involved with ANZUP because these below the belt cancers affect an alarmingly large number of people and it’s the important trials and research that @anzuptrials carry out that may save the life of someone we care about! . . Check yourself, get behind this great organisation and find out how you can help today! Check out what the other chefs, cooks and influencers have made!

OK peeps, it’s balls-out double-entendre time. I know, it may be a ballsy conversation, but it’s one that every bloke needs to have, with your mates, and with your doctor, because men’s health issues below the waist are a real thing. And yes, that will mean facing up to the glove at some point boys, but that’s a whole lot less inconvenient than the alternatives because some cancers hit below the belt. To put it in context, nearly 18,000 people were diagnosed with prostate cancer last year. So, to help make a difference, right now there are a bunch of trials going on to help find treatments, cures and solutions for testicular, penile, bladder, prostate and kidney cancers supported by @ANZUPtrials. You can donate, fundraise, or even participate. If you think you might be a suitable candidate for a trial, you should definitely look them up. After all, maybe it’s time to get the ball rolling. @anzuptrials #rudefood #anzup  #menshealth #menscancer #prostatecancer #testicularcancer #penilecancer #kidneycancer #belowthebelt Recipe in comments below.

Here at Mamamia we're all about getting behind campaigns that matter, and if a touch of humour helps do that. Double win.

Manu is of the same opinion.

"It's not there [the pictures] to be disgusting, it's there to make people talk. What a good way to make people talk!" he said.

ANZUP is trying to raise vital funds for those cancers that men in particular hate talking about.

They've already had vast improvement in health outcomes thanks to clinical trial research, they just need to be able to do more.

There are currently 160 cancer centres and hospitals around the world running trials by ANZUP.

"All of the major milestones in improving cancer treatments worldwide have come through clinical trials, but we still have a long way to go," said CEO Margaret McJannett.

They need all of us, but particularly men, to be willing to talk about it. To know about trials, and their importance in helping to find better and more effective treatments and preventative techniques.

Tell your boyfriends, husbands, brothers and dads. Awareness after all is key.
