Say, What?!

Seldom do I find a story that makes my jaw drop, but this is one of them.

In a story that gives a whole new definition of the phrase "pumping iron", the Daily Pilot reports this morning, HERE, that an unidentified man at Hoag Hospital required the attention of the Costa Mesa Fire Department's Urban Search and Rescue squad - to save his penis!

As you can read in Joe Serna's story, the fellow - in an apparent attempt to lengthen his "member" - inserted it through a steel ring normally used to secure weights to a weight-lifting bar. It got stuck!

Finally, three days later, with the "member" swollen and turning black because the circulation had been cut off, the rescue squad was called and they sawed the steel ring off.

Ouch, ouch, ouch!


In more mundane matters, at their meeting in the City Council chambers tonight the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission will consider a list of new fees and increases in some existing fees, including some for skateboard instruction.

Oh, yes - they will also consider requests to remove a couple trees...

I read that story in the DP this AM. Honestly I think they should have removed the whole package. I don't think we need to leave this guy in reproduction capable mode. All we did was interfere with natural selection...

Now it looks like the DP is taking some heat for the story. I have to admit that the subject matter was more anatomically correctly dealt with than I would have expected.

It didn't curl my hair though.

Bruce, the story is a hoot! You should read the comment thread on the Register's account of it! Curl your hair? OK:-)...

cmtruth, yes, I did miss that story. And, yes, our favorite jackass didn't cover it - big surprise. He NEVER reports white on others crime.. fits his pattern.

By the way, it's time for you to climb back on that horse and get to posting on your blog... NOW!

Of course he didn't mention it. Why would he mention a crime that hits so close to home?

best part was the guy's comment about being 'chief of his tribe' or something to that effect... whatever tribe that is, I want no part of it!

Oh, yeah... and can you imagine what the rites of passage must be like in his tribe? Yikes!
