According to this Reuters news story, police in Congo have arrested 13 sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal men’s penises.
If you read further into the article, you will see that in most cases, the penis isn’t actually missing, just critically downsized. While some doubt the veracity of these nefarious spells, members of the community are understandably rattled by the shrinkage to their manhood. According to one witness in Kinshasa, “It’s real. Just yesterday here, there was a man who was a victim. We saw. What was left was tiny.”
Oh my goodness where to start. Too many wisecracks, too many wisecracks. Hmmm. Can’t decide, can’t decide.
I think it’s best if I just refrain for now.
But c’mon, are we seriously going to pin this on black magic? Isn’t it usually the cold that’s to blame?
