I always thought drawing and quartering was done with 4 horses, pulling the limbs off. Well, you learn something new everyday.

I believe I read that it takes 11.5 lbs of pressure to rip a penis from the human body.

You've GOT to wonder who would measure that...

Probably my ex-wife.

Dang. Just when I think reading the excerpt is enough, I always kick myself for repeating what some other bright (and smart-alec) freeper quips!
