A procedure that takes balls

Britain's National Health Service has about a two-year waiting list for sexual-reassignment surgery, leading one person to take matters into his own hands:

He found a website which gave a step-by-step guide to the eye-watering home surgery, then waited till [his] wife ... went out before setting to work with a kitchen knife in the loo.

With the job done, he wrapped his severed appendages in a cloth and dropped them in the bin. Then he drove five miles to his local GP, explained what he'd done, and was packed off for treatment at the Stoke Mandeville Hospital, near Aylesbury.

And how did it feel?

"It was very painful, but the moment I cut them off I felt all woman. I'm the sort of guy who, when I make up my mind to do something, wants it done there and then. I didn't want to be a man any more so I decided to do it myself."

Of course, the real pain is yet to come: when they cut his salary by thirty percent.

Or the real pain may come when his wife, wishing to dish out the appropriate punishment to him for being a self-centered twit, has to kick him every other place on his body since the natural targets have been removed.

Nah. She'll just close his credit account at the hairdresser.

They walk among us. This is the most disturbing thing I have read all month, but then it's only the 10th. If Chaz can top it then I will watch television (shudder at the thought) until the 31st.

Cut his salary by 30%? Nonsense. They'll raise her salary by 17%.
