A cut most unkind


BUCHAREST — A court has ordered a Romanian surgeon to pay $795,000 in compensation to a patient whose penis he accidentally severed during an operation.

In July 2004, Naum Ciomu made a surgical error while operating on the man's testicles, severing the penis instead of making an incision to the testicle.

I'm guessing that doc had to be some kind of careless. Is $795K enough for pecker whackage? Can the man have some sort of penile transplant surgery?

A piece of muscle from the man's arm has now been attached to where his penis was, but its function is aesthetic.

'You don't have to be an expert to realize that the 33-year-old victim does not have a good state of mind,' said Mihai Olariu, the victim's lawyer.

You know, after reading stories like this, let's just say I am...uh...usually extra, extra grateful for what I have.

And that's all I have to say about that.

(Anyone seen Laurie Kendrick around here lately? I shudder to think what she could do with this info...)

I would touch that story with a ten foot pole.

Nor would I touch his now petite penis with a two millimeter one either.

I've been around, just busy. Very, very busy
