A little something extra... Google has 2,300 hits for "amputated penis."

here's a cool one: doctors made the coffinmaker, whose penis was cut into six pieces by the saw, whole again and fully functioning

doctors failed to diagnosis his cancer
"Diagnosis"? Not "diagnose?"

And $6.5M is hardly enough, if you ask me :)

Yes, but there has to be some cut off point.

That's why I frequently perform a self-examination. And if the movie I rented is good enough, I'll do it twice.

Oooops, sorry. Thought this was fark.

because he was suffering from painful erections and a curvature of the penis

Guess that's not a problem anymore!

was thinking a personals ad would be in order:


for rent, $6.5million/14600 days ($445.21/day, or $18.55/hour).

Sue, sue, sue. Why does everyone feel the need to be a dick about these things?

simple answer...penis envy.

Yeh, he's got all the money alright.

But the whole point of being rich is the women. IMO. Whats the point if you havn't got a dick?

Isn't it awfully nice to have a penis?
Isn't it frightfully good to have a dong?
It's swell to have a stiffy.
It's divine to own a dick,
From the tiniest little tadger
To the world's biggest prick.
So, three cheers for your Willy or John Thomas.
Hooray for your one-eyed trouser snake,
Your piece of pork, your wife's best friend,
Your Percy, or your cock.
You can wrap it up in ribbons.
You can slip it in your sock,
But don't take it out in public,
Or they will stick you in the dock,
And you won't come back.

Thanks a lot, stavros. I just got that song out of my head yesterday, and now it's stuck there again.

Now if I can only avoid singing it aloud at work tomorrow, I'll be fine.

If someone offered me $6.5 million for my penis, I'd have to think long and hard about it.
posted by kindall at 9:43 PM on December 5, 2001


6.5m for mr. willy? no, I'll keep it thanks.
posted by holycola at 10:12 PM on December 5, 2001


I'm sure the hospital could afford the $6.5 mil. Penile reconstruction is a growth industry, after all.

I'm going off to bed now.

Maybe he was just an average guy, getting 1 million per inch.

My lord, this thread has brought out the worst in us.

I can't stop laughing.

From the detail article in Ohio Lawyer's Weekly:

[Defense attorney] Monteleone added that the beautiful part of working with hospital pathology departments is that the evidence has usually been carefully preserved.

Oops, make that "plaintiff's attorney".

Note also that inserting the place name "Cleveland" in any joke makes it twice as funny.

He may have come up short, but he still managed to stick it to the hospital.

I'd add something to this discussion, but I'm stumped.
