ARKANSAS – A Trumann man awoke Monday morning to find his dog eating one of his testicles.
The man, who has not been identified, is paralyzed and told police he has “no feeling from the waist down.”
Around 7:45 a.m. Monday he was awakened by a “burning pain” in his mid-section, according to the initial police report.
The 39-year-old man told police he sleeps in the nude and noticed the dog was between his legs.
He also noticed the “small, white, fluffy dog” had blood on its muzzle and front feet.
When the man looked further, according to the report, he noticed that “the dog had eaten one of his testicles.”
The victim said the dog was a stray he had taken in about three weeks earlier. The man was unsure if the dog had been vaccinated.
Police took the dog to a local veterinarian where it was euthanized. Its head was sent to the Arkansas Department of Health to be tested for rabies.
The victim was taken to St. Bernards Regional Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.
During the six-week show the bronze medalist will visit various tourist destinations with his best friend Sophie Lee.
It will air on ITV1 and he’ll go to countries including Thailand, Japan, Australia, Morocco and New Zealand.
Daley appeared as a coach on ITV’s diving show Splash! earlier this year.
The 19-year-old trained a number of celebrities in the series which saw Eddie “the Eagle” Edwards winning in the final.
He will stay in hostels and take overnight train journeys as part of what program makers describe as a typical student backpacking trip.
As well as challenges such as bungee jumping, he will meet up with friends such as Saturdays star Mollie King along the way.
Daley said: “I can’t wait to get away on my trip. Diving and training are my first love, but I am looking forward to a break from the norm and discovering more about places I’ve never had the chance to explore before. And to do it all with my best friend will be amazing.”
Tom Daley finished sixth in the individual 10m platform final at the world diving championships in Barcelona last month.
ITV director of digital channels Angela Jain said: “Tom’s career as a diver has captivated the nation.
“We hope this show will give people the chance to see the teenager behind the trunks as he enjoys his global backpacking adventure.”

Turns out it’s legal to have a weapon of mass conception at the airport.
Jonah Falcon was stopped and frisked by the TSA at the San Francisco International Airport on July 9 because of a bulging package hidden in his pants. But the 41-year-old New Yorker wasn’t packing a dirty bomb, drugs or a Costco-sized tube of toothpaste. The New Yorker has the world’s largest recorded penis.
In an exclusive interview with The Huffington Post, Falcon described his hard times with security guards after his extra carry-on became suspect.
“I had my ‘stuff’ strapped to the left. I wasn’t erect at the time,” said Falcon, whose penis is 9 inches flaccid, 13.5 inches erect. “One of the guards asked if my pockets were empty and I said, ‘Yes.’”
Falcon said he knew that his interview was about to get a lot more personal when he was led through one of the X-ray body scanners and passed a metal detector.
“Another guard stopped me and asked me if I had some sort of growth,” Falcon said, laughing.
Indeed he did have a growth.
By the age of 18, Falcon knew he had something special when his manhood reached a whopping 12 inches. His family jewel was hailed as the world’s largest on record after an HBO documentary featured him in 1999. The Guinness Book of World Records does not record such feats, but Falcon did show his standout feature to Huffington Post Executive Crime/Weird News Editor Buck Wolf.
Falcon has been contacted by porn companies (though he’s never accepted) and has been featured on just about every talkshow in the country.
As he passed through airport security, Falcon said a younger security guard felt threatened by his “very noticeable” package — and interpreted it as a biological threat.
“I said, ‘It’s my dick,’” Falcon said. “He gave me a pat down but made sure to go around [my penis] with his hands. They even put some powder on my pants, probably a test for explosives. I found it amusing.”
The screener gave up the extensive search without so much as a blush or a smile. Falcon made his flight back to New York on time.
But he learned something that day. The hardened traveler has a new game plan for airport security.
“I’m just gonna wear bike shorts from now on,” Falcon said. “That way, they’ll know. You’d think the San Francisco TSA would have had experience with hung guys before, but I guess not.”
TSA officials at the San Francisco International Airport did not return calls for comment.

JAPAN – A man who had his genitals removed seasoned them before cooking them for five paying dinner party guests, it has been claimed.
Mao Sugiyama, 22, who is asexual, had voluntarily undergone surgery to have them removed.
But the illustrator took his frozen penis and scrotum home from hospital and organised a grim party.
He charged guests around £160 per person to eat his severed genitalia in Tokyo, Japan.
They were garnished with mushrooms and parsley.
Before tucking into dinner, guests sat down to listen to a piano recital and take part in a panel discussion, CalorieLab.com reported.
Mao, who goes by the nickname HC, had initially considered eating his own penis – but decided to serve them up instead.
He cooked the genitalia himself as he was supervised by a chef.
In a Tweet, he offered to cook his penis for a guest for £800. However, he ultimately decided to split the ‘meal’ between six guests.
He wrote on Twitter: ‘I am offering my male genitals (full penis, testes, scrotum) as a meal for 100,000 yen (£800). I’m Japanese.
‘The organs were surgically removed at age 22. I was tested to be free of venereal diseases. The organs were of normal function. I was not receiving female hormone treatment.
‘First interested buyer will get them, or I will also consider selling to a group. Will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location. If you have questions, please contact me by DM or e-mail.’
In total around 70 people attended the event in the Suginami ward of Tokyo. While five people tucked into Mao Sugiyama’s genitalia, the rest of them ate beef or crocodile
The people who ate his genitalia were a 30-year-old couple, a 22-year-old women, a 32-year-old man and Shigenobu Matsuzawa, 29, an event planner.
He Tweeted before the event: ‘It’s a once in a lifetime chance, so I decided on the spur of the moment to do it.’
He posted pictures of the event on his blog, but later removed them and said his decision to take them down was due to ‘privacy considerations’.
Sugiyama made guests sign a waiver so he was not responsible if they became ill after eating his genitalia. They were removed in early April shortly after his 22nd birthday.
The dinner party organiser joked before the event that he would be posting his recipe online.
Guests said that the genitalia were very rubbery and tasted of very little, CalorieLab.com reported.
Suginami Police were contacted but did not launch an investigation because they said nothing had been done which was against the law.
Sugiyama, who is an illustrator, has also had his nipples removed.
As an asexual, his genitalia will not be replaced with artificial female ones.

CHINA – A female scooter rider killed a man by squeezing his testicles over a parking dispute, in Haikou City, Hainan Province, China. The 41 years old woman rode her scooter to an elementary school in Meilan District, to pick up her child. When she tried to park her scooter in front of a shop, she was rejected by the 42-year-old male shop owner. The two parties soon fell into a quarrel, and then the physical confrontation began. The furious woman called up her husband and brother to come help her, which resulted in a fight. During the fight, the middle aged woman managed to grab the man’s testicles, and squeezed them till he finally collapsed on the ground. The man was immediately rushed to the hospital, but unfortunately died.

NEW YORK – After a five-year battle with bureaucracy, a former U.S. Marine finally got New York City to admit on Thursday that he is male and agree to reissue the birth certificate that incorrectly stated otherwise.
David Hassan, a bearded Iraq War veteran, was born in Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital 29 years ago. There was never a reason to doubt he was a boy.
But it was only in 2003 that it came to Hassan’s attention that the hospital had deemed him to be female on his birth certificate, his lawyer said.
Hassan was not bothered by the mistake until he moved to New Jersey after serving in Iraq with the Marine Corp, and tried to get a New Jersey driving license.
His birth certificate identifying him as female raised eyebrows with the authorities, and the license was not issued, Peter Madison, Hassan’s lawyer, said in an interview.
In a bid to set the record straight, Lenox Hill Hospital gave Hassan a letter in 2007 to show to the city’s Department of Health, which explained that he was male and not female – although his problems were far from over.
“The city for reasons known only to themselves said that in the letter the hospital must state that it was their mistake,” Madison said. “Lenox Hill would not admit that it was their own mistake.”
Hassan, who meanwhile has had to rely on public transport or rides from friends to get from his home in Bayonne to his graduate studies at Rutgers University, tried to seek a court order this week telling the city to reissue him a corrected birth certificate.
The subsequent media coverage of his case appeared to have expedited his claim.
A spokeswoman for Lenox Hill said on Thursday that the hospital incorrectly thought the issue had been resolved in 2007, but that it was now in touch with the city and Hassan’s lawyer to resolve the matter.
The Department of Health did not give its own version of events on Thursday, but said that it now expected to get the correct paperwork in the next day or so and would then “amend Mr. Hassan’s record to reflect the correction of the sex listed.”
Madison said he could not understand why there should have been even a moment’s confusion over the sex of his client.
“Have you seen him?” he said, before referring to Hassan’s full beard. “He’s not the bearded lady from the circus.”

Sure, he’s easy on the eyes, but there’s more to 2011′s Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper than dazzling baby blues and a killer smile.
Ladies, take note: this Georgetown grad can whip up dinner, take you for a spin on his motorcycle and whisper sweet nothings in French (he’s fluent!). Just don’t try convincing him what a catch he is.
“I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this [title],” says the Hangover actor, 36. “I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”
Another reason to love him? Cooper, whose father Charles passed away in January, is especially close with his mom, Gloria. When he learned he’d been crowned Sexiest Man Alive, the “first thing I thought,” he says, “was, ‘My mother is going to be so happy.’ ”
So what’s the truth about his dating status?
Cooper, who was with Renée Zellweger for two years until their split in March and has been spotted out with Jennifer Lopez in recent months, says he’s a “single 36-year-old male.”
“If you’re a single man and you happen to be in this business,” he says, “you’re deemed a player. But I don’t see myself as a ladies’ man.”

Rise up, stand tall, and strap on an Occupy Wall Street condom. Apparently the Occupy Wall Street movement has grown big enough to warrant its own novelty condom.
Condomania has just released a new condom in honor of the Wall Street Protesters. Condomania says that 99% of the country is currently getting screwed so they might as well wear a condom.
“Occupy Condoms! Why? Whether or not you agree with the ‘demands’ of the Occupy Wall Street movement that is sweeping the U.S., one thing is for sure; lots of people out there are tired of feeling screwed. Occupy Condoms say it all in a neat little package while affording young protestors the protection they need to stay safe in the passionate frenzy that is social protest.”
But isn’t capitalizing on the movement a little hypocritical? Condomania believes that it has solved that problem by offering the condoms at a 70% discount. The regular price for a 30 pack of condoms, like the Obama Stimulus Package condoms, Sarah Palin Protection condoms, or Election Protection condoms, usually sell for about $40. The Occupy Wall Street condoms are going for just $11.99.
“Occupy Condoms are sold at a 70% discount to demonstrate our support for social change and the virtuous pursuit of equality for all. Mostly, we didn’t think it cool to be capitalizing quite so blatantly on a protest movement that itself is concerned about unscrupulous profiteering. So, we’ll just hope for some good buzz and a small amount of unscrupulous profits.”
What do you think of the Occupy Wall Street condoms? Do you think it’s wrong for a company to profit off of the movement? At least it will stop the spread of hippies, right?

FULLERTON, CALIFORNIA – A man convicted earlier this year for twice ejaculating into a female co-worker’s water bottle was ordered Monday to pay the woman more than $27,000 in restitution.
Orange County Superior Court Judge Walter Schwarm ordered Michael Kevin Lallana, 32, to pay $27,410.80 to the woman for loss of wages, therapy and medical expenses, including the money she paid to have the tainted water tested.
Lallana, who was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges of battery in February, left the semen-laced water on his co-worker’s desk at the Northwestern Mutual Finance Network in Newport Beach on two separate occasions last year.
The woman drank from the bottles both times, throwing the first one away after detecting an unusual taste. After the second incident, she saved the bottle and sent it to a private laboratory for testing. Two months later, results showed the water bottle contained semen and the woman contacted authorities.
Lallana was arrested in July 2010 and his DNA was later matched to the water bottle. Prosecutors said during his trial that Lallana had committed the act for sexual gratification because he was attracted to his co-worker.
In April, Lallana was sentenced to six months in jail and three years’ probation. He also was ordered to register as a sex offender.

HUSAVIK, ICELAND – A 95-year-old Icelander has left his penis to one of the world’s strangest museums.
The late Pall Arason’s pickled member will be the main attraction at the Phallological Museum in the tiny fishing town of Husavik.
Sigurdur Hjartarson, who runs it, said the organ will boost his extensive collection of phalluses from whales, seals, bears and other mammals.
Several people had pledged their penises over the years – including an American, a Briton, and a German – but Mr Arason’s was the first to be successfully donated, Mr Hjartarson said.
“I have just been waiting for this guy for 15 years,” he said.
The museum started in Reykjavik but has since moved to Husavik, a small community probably better known for its whale watching. The Phallological Museum is an important part of the region’s tourist industry, bringing in thousands of visitors every summer.
Highlights of the museum’s collection include a 170-centimetre sperm whale penis preserved in formaldehyde, lampshades made from bull testicles and what the museum described as an “unusually big” penis bone from a Canadian walrus.
Mr Hjartarson, 69, said his interest in what he calls “phallology” began when, as a youngster in rural Iceland, he was given a whip made from a bull’s penis to help him herd cattle. Later, when he worked at a school near a whaling station, colleagues brought him whale penises as gifts.
“That was how it started. I opened this museum 15 years ago with 62 specimens,” he said. Now, with the addition of Mr Arason’s organ, he has 276, many suspended in formaldehyde or dried and mounted on the walls.
Photos posted to the museum’s website show a small army of ghostly, whitish penises stuffed into jars, tall glass cylinders and large aquariums. There are sculptures, moulds and other penis-related craft items. Outside, the museum has a large tree trunk carved into the shape of an erect phallus.

HONOLULU, HAWAII — To all those Obama fans eager for another round of pictures of the presidential pectorals, forget it.
President Obama and his Hawaiian beach party — the first lady, Michelle Obama; their daughters, Malia and Sasha, and an assortment of friends — went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve here on Tuesday. Photographers were kept at a safe distance. The White House gave the press pool traveling with the president strict instructions that there would be no long lenses or other sneaky attempts to take pictures of a shirtless leader of the free world.
The entire preserve was closed to the public, as it is every Tuesday, for maintenance and as part of the broader effort to preserve the coral reef by keeping the number of visitors down.
Preservation is a high priority here at Hanauma Bay, and there have been aggressive efforts to limit the number of visitors over the past decade, said Martha McDaniel, the assistant park manager. In 2002, a new visitors’ center was built; it features an educational video that instructs parkgoers on safety and coral preservation. All visitors — whether are snorkeling or not — are required to see the video once a year.
The Obamas, who snorkeled here 364 days ago, on Dec. 29, 2009, saw the video last year.
The subject of images of Mr. Obama sans shirt has been a touchy one during his presidency. In 2008, when he was president-elect, some pictures emerged from him body-surfing in Hawaii, and he seemed a little sheepish when they were splashed all over the tabloids and magazines. (“Buff Bam is Hawaii hunk,’’ The New York Post exclaimed.) Ever since, the White House has been determined to avoid a repeat.
When the president visited the Gulf Coast of Florida this year, his aides kept news photographers far away from him while he was on the beach. Instead, the White House photographer captured him swimming with his daughter Sasha – and released a picture showing the president in the water, but only from the neck up.
“I’m not going to let you guys take a picture of me with my shirt off,’’ the president told reporters then.

EASTON, PENNSYLVANIA — A Monroe County man told a judge Friday that a case of “stage fright” prompted him to use a fake penis for a probation drug test.
Raymond C. Hartley Jr., of Effort said disparaging comments made about the small size of his penis during a previous drug test prompted him to use a Whizzinator, a device that includes a fake penis, urine and heater packs to evade drug tests.
Hartley, 28, maintained it was his drug-free urine in the device used during a random drug test.
“I didn’t want to hear any other insulting comments about the size of my penis,” Hartley said. “This is not comfortable for me to talk about.”
A Monroe County probation officer discovered the device, and Hartley received new charges.
The charges also earned Hartley a probation violation, which brought him back Friday to Northampton County.
Defense attorney Anthony Rybak said Hartley was emasculated by the comments made by Monroe County probation officials, but maintained his client was clean at the time of the test.
“He didn’t do this to trick anybody,” Rybak said.
Assistant District Attorney John Obrecht argued Hartley never informed anyone ahead of time of his issues with the drug testing.
“Deceit is still deceit,” Obrecht said.
Northampton County Judge Michael Koury on Friday dismissed Hartley’s claims and re-sentenced him to one to two years in state prison, followed by three months of probation.
Hartley said he served six years in the Army before a birth defect was discovered and he was discharged. He underwent open-heart surgery and that’s when he became addicted to pain pills, Hartley said. The addiction led to the burglary, said probation officer Pete Nebzydoski.
“It’s been a struggle,” Hartley said of dealing with his addiction. “I have every desire to be a better man.”
Hartley pleaded guilty in September 2009 to burglary, a felony, and was sentenced to four to eight months in county prison followed by one year of probation that he was serving in Monroe County.
After Hartley was charged for the fake penis he pleaded guilty to providing drug-free urine and was ordered to pay a fine and court costs, Nebzydoski said.
