When silicone penis implants make me laugh

I'm reading a book called Bonk by Mary Roach and it really is a very amusing read. For all sorts of reasons!

One paragraph in particular. Mary describes attending a surgery - as a visitor. A silicone penis implant is being inserted into a 70-year-old man's, well, penis. The rod is not going in very well.

"Dr. Hsu presses on the kinked rod. The novelist Martin Amis once described an impotent character's attempts at intercourse as being like trying to feed an oyster into a parking meter. This is like trying to put a parking meter into an oyster."

If you want a good laugh and to, occasionally, wince then I highly recommend this book. You'll most certainly do both!
