detachable penis

The most urgent news of the day comes from London:

A man who cut off his penis in front of diners at a pizza restaurant in the Strand, London, has had it reattached in the first operation of its kind in the country. It is too early to tell whether the operation will be a success, however, according to surgeons who carried out the procedure at St Thomas's hospital, south London.

The 35-year-old Polish man had grabbed a knife from the kitchen of the Zizzi's restaurant before climbing on to a table, dropping his pants and cutting off his penis in front of other diners, many of whom had gathered at the restaurant after the London marathon.


I liked this version of the story from a Croatian paper better, descriptively titled "Run Into The Restaurant And Cut Off His Penis", with the caption "Bizarrley Hurting" under a photo of a sharp-looking knife. Subcaption: "Police had to use the force to restrain the man who cut off his penis in the restaurant."

Police was forced to use a gas to restrain the man in the Zizzi restaurant. The man, between 30 to 40 years old, hurt himself by cutting his penis.

The restaurant spokesman said that the man entered the restaurant about 9 p.m. and tried to get into the kitchen. After he was stopped by personnel, the man still managed to run into another kitchen room, grab the knife and cut his wrists. He then run back to the restaurant and continued with self-hurting.

Everything happened within a second but it was still very scarry and shocking for the guests and the restaurant personnel.

The man was deported to the hospital, but doctors did not succeded in sewing on his penis, BBC writes.

Thank you, Google news.
