Lynchings in Congo as penis theft panic hits capital
Reuters Wednesday, 23 April 2008

Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of
using black magic to steal or shrink men's penises after a wave of panic and
attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.


I can see a market for all those "Add inches!" spammers. Clearly the Congo will be awash with men concerned that their members have been minimised by magic.

I can picture the scene now, "Honestly, it isn't usually that small, i had an argument with a witchdoctor".

"Incredulity" alright. Amazing people believe this sort of stuff.
