Wasn’t there a Perry Mason episode called “The Case Of The Re-Attached Penis”? A Turkish court will delay making a verdict for 18 months in a case where a woman is charged with cutting off her lover’s penis. The delay is in part to deterimine whether the man’s re-attached penis is functional. According to a source, “To determine which crime was committed, we first need the report. We’ll continue holding hearings in the trial from time to time until we receive the report.” I’m pretty sure I know what crime was committed – she cut off the dude’s penis. Who cares whether it works again or not? Well, besides the guy with the re-attached penis, that is. [Yahoo!/Reuters]
