Penis Snatchers!!

Thanks to the irrepressible Ms Calabazza for this alert…….

KINSHASA (Reuters) – Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men’s penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.

Rumors of penis theft began circulating last week in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo’s sprawling capital of some 8 million inhabitants. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings.

Purported victims, 14 of whom were also detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear, in what some residents said was an attempt to extort cash with the promise of a cure.

“You just have to be accused of that, and people come after you. We’ve had a number of attempted lynchings. … You see them covered in marks after being beaten,” Kinshasa’s police chief, Jean-Dieudonne Oleko, told Reuters on Tuesday….”But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it’s become tiny or that they’ve become impotent. To that I tell them, ‘How do you know if you haven’t gone home and tried it’,” he said. — Reuters

Superstitious sillies! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to run to the men’s room and check something….

    No need to go all the way to the Congo to find dickless men. Try any state capital.

    Taking the expression “small ball” to the extreme.

    It is called the “third world” for a reason.

    Hey Squathole,
    so was everything where it ought to be?

    Ms C — Well, everything was where I left it, but that’s not necessarily where it ought to be. There’s always tonight.
