Men, your penises are safe.
We have been informed, via The Daily Show and Kenneth in The 212, that Congolese police have arrested thirteen men accused of using black magic to shrink rivals’ rods.
The African nation’s Penis Theft Advisory Level has been reduced, but authorities remind us to always keep an eagle eye and/or a firm grip on our penises, lest they be snatched away.
Someone else can keep that grip, as well, but only if you need both your hands for other activities.
While it seems that many are getting a big laugh out of this story, we would all do well to remember that several men are essentially being tried as witches. Of course, they are innocent. But, they will be tried and found guilty because of the fervor surrounding these events. They may lose their lives and will certainly lose their freedom.
It’s had for me to find amusement while keeping that in mind.
Kevin, When I read the actual news report about this issue, the cops were only following up on it because complaints were lodged. No one will actualy be prosecuted for it. All the people they rounded up were immediately released. One article even had a police officer making fun of the men who had complained in the first place, saying “We basically have to ask these men how they know this happened if they havne’t even gone home and tried to USE their member yet.”
Given the geographical distance, we can chucle at the absurdity of peoples’ beliefs; however in the U.S. we are confronted with a wide contagion of ignorant religious myth that is no more rediculous and much more harmful than anything in the congo. E.G The pentacostals sincerely believe that people can changre their sexuality.
Is it just some kind of self righteousness that makes this look less insane?
