It's heartening to find that an OZ company was chosen to produce this world first.   (just having a brag)

Dang, I was thinking this would be a thread on barbecue.

Oh well, I see your spare ribs and raise you this.

I hope for his sake it was an ... upgrade. Smile
The article (thankfully) didn't mention race.

Imagine if the wounded vet was black and woke up with a white dick?

His bros would never quit joking about it.
(and his black wife leaves him, of course.)

And he learns to dance to country music.
And so on.

Yeah, that's distasteful stereotypical nonsense,worked for the cheap laugh.

Though I'm showing some restraint.

Off to wash my brain out with soap and sit in the corner until i'm able to rethink my disgusting nature.

Interesting, though, how our prudish nature is disinclined to address fairly common war injuries.
We can handle when a vet gets his leg blown off. We tend to avoid more details.

I wonder if the lucky-unlucky soldier will have the balls to go on Oprah?

Good Christ! Then he'd have to learn how to drive again!!11

Nope, it seems not. 
It says they didn't include them in the set "for ethical reasons".  Huh

But we weren't so prudish down here after WWII,  any bloke a  bit reticent around women was inferred to have been awarded the DSO .    (Distinguished Service Order medal, ) except we all knew it meant Dick Shot Off.

I'm ashamed of us.
I merely relay The Truth™. I'm not responsible for what you people do with it. Smile
