KINSHASA, April 22 - 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.

Reports of so-called penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where belief in traditional religions and witchcraft remains widespread, and where ritual killings to obtain blood or body parts still occur.

Rumours of penis theft began circulating last week in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo's sprawling capital of some 8 million inhabitants. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings.

Am I the only one who thinks the REAL reason the police arrested the alleged sorcerors was to keep them out of the lynch mobs' hands?

Anyway...is a loss of libido really all that bad?

"Hello, I'ld like to report that my penis was stolen"
"Certainly, we have some here that have been returned." (opens drawer) "Any of these yours?"

Reminds me of a children's book. The plot: all bums in the town have been stolen and it's up to one girl to get them back. At the end, to avoid embarrassment, when the bums are found in a pile, the police turn out the lights and have people guess which bum is theirs.
