Understatement of the Year

A Romanian doctor, accoridng to that well known bastion of journalism The Bucharest Sunday Telegram, recently was disciplined in the form of a $190,000 fine after he lost his temper during a urological operation and cut off the patient's penis.

He later admitted her overreacted.

Ya think!?

Thank News of the Weird for this information. Or blame them, as the case may be.

The doctor's union is apparently protesting the fine as "unwarranted." Perhaps they'd like to be involuntarily gelded and then rethink that position.

Makes me think of Roseanna Roseannadanna and her 'Oops! Nevermind!'

It wasn't Dr. Bobbitt, by any chance?

Maggie, makes me wince!

Eclectic, on the off chance you're ever in Romania and need surgery, you'll want to avoid a Dr. Naim Ciomu. You'll want to avoid Lorena Bobbit in general.

Well that gives me a new excuse. "It wasn't always this small. See, I was in Romania..."
