Remembering "The Member"....

CAN'T LET GO OF IT - SORRY
OK, it's taken me most of a week to stop laughing about the bonehead who had his "thing", "member" or "penis" - depending on the description you choose to use - removed from weight ring by the Costa Mesa Urban Search and Rescue Squad last week. The image of the rescue workers - sparks a'flyin' - sawing off that metal ring gives me the willies, so to speak. You can read Joe Serna
's tasteful article, HERE, along with some very funny comments by the Daily Pilot readers.

THE HITS KEEP ON COMING
This story seems to have taken on a life of it's own. It's my understanding that the Daily Pilot alone had thousands of hits and certainly had plenty of letters, both pro and con, about publishing this story at all. For example, just run a simple Google search using "Costa Mesa+penis" and it will generate more than 50,000 hits! Yikes!!! This story has so much staying power you'd think the poor guy had been using Viagra!

MORE DAILY PILOT FLOGGING
Two days after the story ran Daily Pilot Editor Brady Rhoades posted an entry on his blog which also showed up in print, HERE, addressing this
issue. Sunday - in the print version you finally received on Monday - former Costa Mesa mayor Peter Buffa ran a hilarious column addressing this story, HERE. There are stories about this "event" everywhere - Jay Leno even used it in his monologue Thursday night, for goodness sake.

WHO IS THIS IDIOT?
I certainly hope this guy's identity is never made public - this is the kind of thing that will stay with him forever!

THINK ABOUT IT...

In Serna's account, much of which was painful to even contemplate, he used this phrase, "The penis had blackened and swollen to five times its normal size, authorities said." I don't know about you, but after contemplating that mental image I will never again look at an eggplant in th
e super market without a chuckle.



I'M GONNA TRY, BUT....

I'm going to try not to comment on this subject again, but no guarantees. Some things are just too funny to forget about.
