WE KNOW THIS HAS BEEN BLOGGED BEFORE

But it's apparently a totally new panic.

Key Quote: 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.

If you work for a German bank, is paying for "restoration" no longer permitted?

Sheesh...maybe they were just in the pool.

Well, that explains what happened to that male stripper with the iddy, biddy business. Didn't you post that picture, Annie?...or was it Souxie.

I will certainly avoid all communal taxis wearing gold rings!

Thanks, Dave. Now I can use the excuse "I don't understand it - something must have happened when I was visiting the Congo."

That was Siouxie. I would NEVER post such a horrible thing.

Don't you know some guy with a small penis started that.
"And now just look at my penis! It sooo didn't used to be that way!"

Gah! My penis just fell off! Dam you, Annie!

...beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings.
Weird. When I wear gold rings, it has the opposite effect on a guy.

My PRECIOUS!

Penis Theft Panic WBAGNFARB, anyway.

"Some Kinshasa residents accuse a separatist sect from nearby Bas-Congo province of being behind the witchcraft in revenge for a recent government crackdown on its members."

Well, that's gotta hurt a bit.

The best was at the end: "Have you gone home and tried it?"
