Sometimes things just ARE Scrotifrom!
The yucky scrotiform icon itself (yuck).... 'Scrotiform' means;
  1. In the form of a scrotum, so anything that is even slightly shaped like a scrotum is scrotiform.
    [See photos of examples].
  2. Something that is, or is going, horribly wrong (a bit like "pear-shaped" only much worse),
    e.g. "The meeting/ wedding/ holiday/ dinner party/ office move was a disaster; it all went scrotiform", or "They cancelled our project when it started going scrotiform", or "My career went totally scrotiform after the water-butt incident", or perhaps "His entire existence is just scrotiform", etc. [See photos of examples]. 2011

Similarly, when 'pear-shaped' is too ordinary try saying "scrotiform!", or before it get's that bad "it's heading scrotiform!"

Category 1: Things that are scrotiform (i.e. scrotum shaped)

We plan to add a few modest examples of objects, things, perhaps even people or places, that are or could reasonably be said to be scrotiform.

Here's our collection so far of things that are in the shape, or form, of scrotums (but please relax; we guarantee you will NOT see an actual scrotum featured here, unless coincidentally, as we aim only to show things like them). Where possible we will include links (found by clicking the photos) to their source....
We very much admire people who make or market scrotiform products - not just for their gumption but because we know it takes balls too.

An attractive young girl from Baroda
Moved to an erotic pagoda;
Soon the walls of its halls
Were festooned with the balls
And the tools of the fools
Who bestrode her.
