"Did you or did you not want a circumcision?" Man claims penis amputated without consent. And they say papercuts are the worst...

Yes, it's my second post today, but a) it's Friday, and not as if anyone else is posting, and b) this is news of the gravest importance, in that it's directly hardwired to male monkeys' worst fears.

  • This has been one of my major gripes with surgery over the years. They make you sign a consent form saying that the doctor has your permission to do anything he/she deems necessary. And they generally only bring you the form right before the procedure, so you don't have time to read it and protest. On two occasions, I refused to sign the form unless I could add conditions to it. Both times, I went under the knife terrified that I'd pissed the doctor off.
  • And lo and behold, you woke up without a penis.
  • *queues King Missile*
  • "'Oops' is when you fall down an elevator shaft. 'Oops' is when you skinny-dip in a school of piranha. 'Oops' is when you accidentally douche with Drano. No, Ed, this was not an 'oops.' This was an AIIIIIIGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"
  • And lo and behold, you woke up without a penis. Yes, I seem to be doing that a lot lately.
  • Done is the fantasy. (by not including the reality over-load.)
  • Sad in any case.
  • Me, too, TUM. Maybe we should form a support group.
  • "Man claims penis amputated without consent"... this is sort of a no-brainer of a headline.. Show me the headline "Man claims penis was amputated with his full concent" and I'll show you a news article worth reading.
  • This sort of fits the bill, Bob.
  • Finally, a home-castration story which doesn't involve sitting around having some cherry pie afterwards...
  • There's a lot of that going around, roryk Mmmmmmm, I like cherry pie.
