Woman sets fire to ex-husband's penis

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A woman set fire to her ex-husband's penis as he sat naked watching television and drinking vodka, Moscow police said Wednesday.

Asked if the man would make a full recovery, a police spokeswoman said it was "difficult to predict."

The attack climaxed three years of acrimonious enforced co-habitation. The couple divorced three years ago but continued to share a small flat, something common in Russia where property costs are very high.

"It was monstrously painful," the wounded ex-husband told Tvoi Den newspaper. "I was burning like a torch. I don't know what I did to deserve this."

Sad. But you know, I wonder if he had drunk enough vodka and had peed as he was set on fire if he could have been a human flame thrower. Hey, don't pretend you didn't think of this too.

Ok, maybe you didn't.

You must have access to some pretty amazing drugs.

I'm so tired of the old "Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, girl sets boy's junk on fire" story. Yawn.
