What an IDIOT! You’re supposed to use the little scissors - NOT the clippers! The scissors even have that rounded blade!

It's a good thing I checked all the replies before posting mine. I was going to post the following:

The unnamed young man was taken to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, where he had the wound cleaned and disinfected.

Did he leave a tip?

I'm glad I didn't post that. I hate looking like a copycat.

ROP’ers also circumcise, and tend to be - shall we say? - a bit more excitable than Jews.

After? I’m glad he didn’t injure himself while he was using the clippers.

"I’m glad he didn’t injure himself while he was using the clippers."

That begs the question, How does one preform that procedure with nail clippers? Best not to know I suppose.

“Even if he had had a few drinks before hand”

I don't even like trimming my mustache after
having a “few drinks”.

He must have power-chugged a quarter keg and
ate a half gallon of Jello shots.

Yes, the Mangled Genitals Ping List. It was pinged yesterday when this article was first posted: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2282779/posts

But what the heck, maybe Martin will want to ping it again, so he can re-use that insane graphic from the first one!
