unauthorized penis amputation. Yikes.
2002-01-11 10:35:21 AM  
Anybody else just hear a rimshot?

Seriously though.. Unauthorized? Is there such a thing as an authorized penis amputation?
2002-01-11 10:36:18 AM  
Hope it works out ok for ya Drew
2002-01-11 10:43:26 AM  
$2.6 million for your penis? What do you think guys. Would you do it?
2002-01-11 10:44:06 AM  
I don't like Lawyers and sueing, but unauthorized penis amputation.

This guy should get a bazillion dollars.
2002-01-11 10:44:44 AM  
Only in Kentucky...
2002-01-11 10:48:19 AM  
Ever notice how many stories there are on Fark that have to do with penii? (is that the correct plural?)
2002-01-11 10:49:39 AM, its penes

too many
2002-01-11 10:50:46 AM  
I sure have noticed. ;)
2002-01-11 10:51:40 AM  
not near as many as the boobie stories
2002-01-11 10:52:21 AM  
dood, they should make the doctor be the donor for a penis transplant! plus a bazillion bucks.
(in my professional opinion.)
plus he should get a waiver from the government to be able to smoke as much pot as he could ever want...

We support you Drew.

Isn't streptococcal that flesh eating bacteria? If it is then dude's penis would have been eatin away slowly.

So the question is would you prefer have your manhood chopped off or slowly eatin away?
2002-01-11 11:02:27 AM  
As long as it just nibbled....

2002-01-11 11:03:17 AM  
I think I'd just need enough money to buy a gun and a bullet.
2002-01-11 11:04:10 AM  
Um, I've always thought that streptococcal is what you get when suspected of having strep throat. not sure if that is the big ass q-tip in teh back of the throat gagging you procedure, or the batcteria/virus/disease name itself
2002-01-11 11:04:20 AM  
Hell I'd lop mine off with a pair of hedge clippers for $2.6 Million!
2002-01-11 11:05:18 AM  
hey, this could be a new item on ebay.
2002-01-11 11:10:14 AM  
damn Random Person . . . . you are a brave man
2002-01-11 11:10:53 AM  
"streptococcus" just describes the shape of the bacteria. there are many many varieties.
2002-01-11 11:10:57 AM  
Yep Group
A Streptococcal (GAS) Disease
ranges from strep throat kind to the flesh
eating kind.
2002-01-11 11:12:15 AM  
heh heh, I said "GAS" Disease
2002-01-11 11:12:43 AM  
This is what came to mind: What worse the disease or the cure?
2002-01-11 11:14:54 AM  
I'd lop Random Person's penis off for $2.4 million! Do we have any lower bidders?
2002-01-11 11:21:17 AM  
I'd pay $200 to lop off Random Person's tiny, inconsequential shriveled member with the apparatus of my choice.
2002-01-11 11:22:34 AM  
Does that mean I can sue my wife? I want lil' Grivas back! (lil' is a figure of speech, he is enormous)
2002-01-11 11:29:06 AM  
Glad to hear he had a (third) leg left to stand on...
2002-01-11 11:36:10 AM  
isit just me or does it seem that people aren't making as many comments as usual?
2002-01-11 11:40:15 AM  
Very. Funny. Headline.

Mornin' Men!
2002-01-11 11:42:25 AM  
2002-01-11 11:43:12 AM  
Mornin. You should change your signin name to O and then sue for your missing kok.
2002-01-11 11:49:49 AM  
LOL, Grivas! I'll consider it.

JOHNDX: You're not going to get all possessive on me, are you? ;)

2002-01-11 12:01:34 PM  
Alright, so I thought it was a bigger deal, like the doctors just decided to remove his penis, or got the wrong guy by mistake. The infection he had would not only have taken the guy's privates, but his life, and in pretty short order.

I think he was only awarded money because of the shock value (like our headline); the doctors saved his life & got sued.
2002-01-11 12:04:23 PM  
I am hungover and the thought of a wienerectomy is making me sick. Hey JDX, you are in Houston. Can you come down to 1400 Smith and shoot me?
2002-01-11 12:05:16 PM  
This is the most blatant posting of a story for the gag in the headline. I like it - keep it up.
2002-01-11 12:07:18 PM  
Fb-: You're only $2,599,800 away from winning the grand prize! Until then, please stick to your self-mutilation.
2002-01-11 12:09:45 PM  
1400 Smith, no problem, any security around the front door?
2002-01-11 12:11:45 PM  
Security is tight. We have the barricades for the disgruntled car bomb employees. And they are making me open all incoming mail, so I should be dead soon anyways. This hangover sux. My contacts feel like they are stapled to my eyes. Maybe they are.
2002-01-11 12:22:56 PM  
Yeah, heard about the shredding of important documents yesterday, sad
2002-01-11 12:27:12 PM  
Hey, Grivas, can you see me waving at you?
2002-01-11 12:28:44 PM  
Um, anybody waving at me?
2002-01-11 12:34:53 PM  
[image from too old to be available] always
2002-01-11 12:35:34 PM  
Hey, thanks! ;)
2002-01-11 12:36:29 PM  
The headline makes me want to groan. Sheesh.
2002-01-11 12:37:15 PM  
You are one lucky girl, Okok. That man is a prince.
2002-01-11 12:37:34 PM  
Okok, i'm waiving my private parts at your granny.
2002-01-11 12:40:17 PM  
I know, Hytes. Thanks. ;)

TV: I think recess is over. Run on back to class now.
2002-01-11 12:41:34 PM  
Read that a little more carefuly. He didn't have a streptococcal infection, that is just what he was treated for. Sounds like the doctors threw away his tissue without testing it to try to cover it up too. The guy was arguing that they treated him incorrectly, and then chopped his wang off without telling him.
