Too strange to believe — boy grows a penis on his arm

I couldn’t make that up if I wanted to, could I?

Doctors have grown a new penis on a Russian boy’s arm after he lost his old one in a bizarre accident.

The 16-year-old, named only as Malik, lost his penis after receiving an electric shock while urinating on an electric wire.

Surgeons grew a new penis on his arm and have now moved it to his groin.

The Russian Clinical Hospital for Children surgeons created it by putting an empty latex cylinder in Malik’s forearm and pumping a solution into it every day, reports Pravda.

The cylinder grew on the boy’s arm for 10 months until it took on the shape of a penis.

I won’t put the very bizarre photo on my site; for that, and the rest of this odd story, you’ll have to go here.

If you are ever in Russia and see a girl walking with her arm wrapped around her boyfriends elbow you might wonder if there is more to it than at first meets the eye!!

Have to agree with the Marmot: great blog design. And great blog, by the way.

About the elbow penis: I wonder why they didn’t grow it on the back of a mouse, like they did with that human earlobe.

After all, in the animal world, there’s the “titmouse.” Why not a “dickmouse”?


PS: Yes, yes… I know a titmouse isn’t a mouse.

You have to wonder how much more he would have had to pay to have a Dirk Diggler / Johnny Holmes sized penis grown for him.

Think of all the new industries this can lead to …

Dont like your penis? Piss on an electric fence and get a new one!!

Then again, doesn’t peeing on an electric fence give you the special Darwin award? Who hasn’t seen Ren & Stimpy and their wonderful episode on “Don’t Pee on the Electric Fence”?

And according to the longer article, “this kind of plastic surgery was not uncommon.” That’s just plain wierd.

Wow. Maybe I should look into this. You never know when you’ll need a spare.
