Let's end this newly formed urban legend now. The 'penis' in the Ora Potency Fruit Punch was just a fungus. At least quality control can keep body parts out.

Does the pathologist lack a penis? Or was he just simply drunk off his arse at the time?

Well the picture sort of looks like part of one. A good day for this post, skallas.

"Rowe said Wednesday the pathologist from the coroner's office didn't do a tissue sample but only an external examination of the object before identifying it as a penis.

Rowe said she could see how the pathologist could come to that conclusion. "If you saw it, you would have believed it," she said."


Not that I want to see it, but this hard to believe.

I've seen mother of vinegar in apple cider in my own fridge that looked just that yucky. Sorry I couldn't find any pictures---it's Mycoderma aceti, if anybody cares, and it means the company that makes the drink isn't properly pasteurizing its product.

I saw a picture of what they found in that bottle . If that was a fungus then Gore is in the White House.

Great god... that was incredibly foul. It puts a whole new spin on "spit or swallow" now, doesn't it?

I wonder if this wasn't part of a marketing campaign. After all it is a potency drink. "Our Fruit Punch is so potent, it has it's own penis."
