OMG: A 45kg scrotum?

November 1, 2011

I suppose it makes you appreciate our heath-care system when you read stories like this: some poor bugger in the United States has scrotal elephantiasis, which means his crackers are ginormous.

Yes folks, he has a 45kg scrotum.

Anyway, he needs an operation to fix the problem but has no medical insurance so is trying to raise the funds himself: $1.25 million.

Our health-care system might not be perfect but I’d like to believe that if someone here had the same problem they’d not have to raise the money to pay for the surgery themselves.
