"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."

Medical students sliced off part of baby's penis; thought it was umbilical cord

A newborn baby boy had part of his penis cut off by bungling medical students who mistook it for the umbilical cord. The injury was hushed up by doctors as they attempted to keep it a secret from his parents.

However, the boy’s dad, Diego Rangel Izaguirre, started to grow suspicious after he was denied access to the child for more than two hours after he was born.

Staff at the hospital in Saltillo, Mexico, told the father that the boy had had a “minor accident” -- but he soon discovered the truth.

Fortunately the organ was successfully sewn back together -- but the baby suffered three more cuts during surgery.

His parents made an official complaint to the hospital but officials insist the baby is healthy and that the operation was both minor and consented to by the parents. The hospital has launched an internal investigation.
