I concede the truth of Robert Stacy McCain’s title: “Two Words You Probably Never Want to Think About: ‘Botched Vasectomy’.” Apparently someone on the receiving end of same went berserk and shot three people, one of them (a urologist) fatally, before turning the gun on himself.
McCain who, incidentally, has six kids states the following for record:
- Nobody’s getting anywhere near my scrotum with a knife; and
- If you decide to undergo “an inhumane medical procedure from hell,” you’ve got to be prepared to deal with it.
I offer two additional bits of guidance:
- Pay cash;
- Have this done when you’re young enough to shrug it off after a few days. (I was twenty-eight; Mr. Grieved here was in his late forties.)
Otherwise, well, you can buy a hell of a lot of Trojans for the price of an outpatient visit.
Aside: Why can’t we train these people to shoot themselves first? It would do wonders for the death toll.
