    Read that this morning… very disturbing. A cry for attention? Maybe it just itched really bad?

    Can it itch that bad?

  3. I was one of millions of male readers who felt an urge to cringe and cross their legs whilst reading. :/

  4. Maybe he was neither rich nor good looking…

    Is that reason enough to cut off your penis? Am sure there would be lots of penis-less men if that was the case!

  6. That makes me feel distinctly queasy. Just not good. Really not good.

  7. It’s not the nicest thing to hear on the radio at 6:30am.
    But not as bad as the man who did the same but fed the dismembered member to his mutt.

  13. surgeons were unable to reattach his penis

    I wonder who found that more distressing, him or the surgeons?

  14. Depends on if they cocked it up or not.

    While walking with a friend along the beach at West Bay, Bridport today I broached this subject with my companion. Far from being shocked he told me that this sort of thing has been going on for years and he began to relate to me a book he had read entitled “The Surgeon of Crowthorne.” Apparently Dr W.C. Minor was a man who lived in the ninteenth century, was fascinated by words and contributed a great deal towards the Oxford English Dictionary. He committed murder and ended up in prison where he cut off his penis because he felt guilty for “relgiious reasons.”

  16. 15 comments, and not one about avoiding the pepperoni pizza at Zizzis for a few weeks. I despair…

    Dr Minor must have been a poor tortured soul. West Bay is a particularly beautiful place (it’s part of what’s known as the Jurassic Coast) and as we walked yesterday the conversation turned to lighter things and my friend said “Why do we see beauty in nature?” “Some people think it’s to do with God.” I said. We walked on hand in hand and in silence.

    it was lucky he was asurgeon did Dr Minor manage to sew it back on? Will we be having more instalments from Yvonne about her stroll on the beach? Let us skip through the fields of unknowingness once again.
