"If it weren't for the penis, human life would have ended with Adam and Eve.
It seems strange that something so important is so funny-looking.
I'm an author and journalist. Sometimes I write about funny things.
Some of those funny things are penises."

Dead penis head removed

A New Jersey man had the head of his penis removed after suffering a rare type of blood poisoning that caused the skin to turn black and die.

The 54-year-old man was admitted to a hospital where doctors found he had gangrenous lesions on his legs, buttocks, thighs and weenie.

The lesions -- which were black and covered in shrivelled, dying skin -- hurt so much he needed strong medication to control the pain, according to doctors describing his case in the journal BMJ Case Reports.

Dr. Edmond Sarkis, who treated the man at Cooper Medical Centre, explained the man had necrosis -- where the skin prematurely dies and withers away. He said, "We took a look at his lesions as they were nasty; they were purple to black. They were all over his thighs, his lower back and even his penis was dying, which is rare. I had never seen anything this extensive before."
