Thank you. Reading this thread has hurt my head. You'd think adults would be able to control themselves a bit more, wouldn't you?

Topics dealing with a penis transplant will typically result in the types of comments and puns that have been posted in this thread. The anonymity of the Internet emboldens some people to act in the manner that they do, which in many cases is sophomoric and highly insensitive. Human behavior will not change anytime soon, but the ordeal that the patient went through is something worth reflecting on before the latest and greatest penis joke finds its way here.

I agree with both Magritte25 and Scooby Snacks that it is time for people to show some restraint at this point.

This is one you want to make sure the docs got a good night sleep the day before the surgery.

When I was diagnosed with cancer, my eldest son called me and said, "Hey Mom, what's eating you?"

My youngest said, "Mom, since they only took out part of your colon, do we call it 'semi-colon cancer'?"

Somebody else remarked that I should stay out of the sun because I could get cancer.

It's how some people deal with the unthinkable.

Is it amusing to think of a penile transplant? To some people, yes. Especially to the males among us. There is no other way they can cope with the thought of losing a "member" of the club. I feel certain that if they met this gentleman, they would be respectful.

I also feel certain the close friends of this gentleman will be lining up to regale him with playful remarks about the new addition. And the biggest laughs will be from him.
