You Snatched My What Now?

I’ll just share this with you…

“I’m tempted to say it’s one huge joke,” [Kinshasa's police chief, Jean-Dieudonne] Oleko said.

“But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it’s become tiny or that they’ve become impotent. To that I tell them, ‘How do you know if you haven’t gone home and tried it’,” he said.

… and direct you to the article.

Those are the results of living in a country where delusion and superstition are as pervasive as ever, and people still believe in witchcraft.

    Oh, you mean Congo! At first I thought you were talking about the U.S.
    Well we shouldn’t speak too harshly about people’s shortcomings.

    Men are very protective of Mr. Happy.

    If you think that’s crazy – check out the psychological disorder known as Koro.

    Hey, come on now, they have eyewitnesses:

    “It’s real. Just yesterday here, there was a man who was a victim. We saw. What was left was tiny,” said 29-year-old Alain Kalala, who sells phone credits near a Kinshasa police station.

    Irrefutable, I tell you.

    As someone who has been turned into a newt, I take offense to the assertion that witchcraft isn’t real.

    Damn.

    It reminds me a little of delusional parasitosis, the mental illness where people believe that bugs are crawling on them. Nurse Ingrid has had patients with DP, and says that it’s very stubborn and completely resistant to evidence: people will bring in bits of lint or dirt to show their doctor the bugs, and even if you show them under a microscope that they’re not bugs, the delusion persists.

    Of course, the police aren’t FREAKING ARRESTING anyone for putting bugs on people…

    If when people tell the delusional dumbfucks that their penises are still there and they still claim otherwise, their penises should be *really* chopped off.

    That would be a good dose of reality right there, and it would ensure that those retards are out of the gene pool.
