Take the case of poor Daniel Metzgar, a man who resides right next to me in the state of Delaware. All Daniel wanted to do was to put some inches on his tool- no doubt to help with his love life- and live happily ever after.
But alas, that was not to be; the poor guy hooked up with a bad plumber.
"Metzgar filed a malpractice lawsuit against the urologist who performed the surgical procedure, and on Monday and Tuesday, he testified in court about how the procedure left him feeling like less of a man, according to The Delaware News Journal.
The 44-year-old truck driver’s penile woes date back to 2009, after receiving a three-part penile implant from Wilmington, Del., urologist Dr. Thomas J. Desperito. After undergoing the procedure, Metzgar’s scrotum reportedly resembled a volleyball in size, which he reportedly thought was just a normal consequence of the surgery.
When Metzgar did finally speak with his physician about the abnormality he was experiencing, which had progressed into an infection, the doctor suggested removing the prosthesis. According to the physician’s defense attorney, Michael C. Heyden (pictured far right), Metzgar unfortunately waited an inordinate amount of time before he made the decision to comply with his doctor’s recommendation.
Metzgar contends that he waited because he lost his insurance and could not afford the procedure at the time.
Metzgar finally had the device, which consisted of inflatable cylinders inside the shaft of his penis, a fluid reservoir under the abdominal wall, and a pump inside the scrotum, removed in August 2010, after it punctured his scrotum during a family trip to Niagara Falls.
The reason why Metzgar opted for the inflatable penile prosthetic in the first place was because he was a longtime diabetic who developed erectile dysfunction." [Source]
The poor guy had an erection for eight months. I hate when that happens.
Anyway, couldn't some of those little blue pills have done the trick?
Finally, while most sane people in America continue to be concerned about jobs and the economy, republicans in Washington continue to focus their efforts on attacking the female body.
"Jobs? All morning this morning the House Judiciary Committee debated what everyone knows is another waste of time bill that will never be signed into law. Though many in the GOP asked “where are the jobs” during the 2010 election cycle that ended with them capturing the House majority, now the question could easily be: Where is the jobs bill?
Abortion obsessed Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who has brought up an endless string of never-to-become-law abortion related legislation over the years, is back again. Today the House Judiciary Committee debated the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act all morning and is set to continue arguing on amendments late into the afternoon. That the Senate would take up, or that the President would actually sign, Franks’ bill hasn’t stopped Franks from burning committee hours to nurse his obsession." [More]
Now we know why they have a 10% approval rating.
