Cock-a-maimy Index

Last night, "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" reported some good news out of Kinshasa, the sprawling capital of Democratic Republic of Congo. It seems the authorities have just 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. Needless to say, the country's Penis Theft Advisory Level has been lowered accordingly. They couldn't have done this without the biggest dick of all. Thanks, Mr. Ashcroft!

Insert your own Lorena Bobbitt joke here. :-)

I know we in the Western world are finding that whole penis sorcerer story amusing, but think how horrifying it must be over there. The panic, the suspicion, all aggravated by the imagination getting the best of one. (I've studied the Salem, Mass., witch frenzy quite a bit). I'm sure it's not the slightest bit amusing over there.
