Guy Has Testicular Cancer Surgery; Doctors Remove Wrong Gazebo!

Tragedy and comedy.

Today’s story has plenty of both.

Here’s the deal.

The Deal

A guy over in London has testicular cancer. The best way to treat this malady is with surgery. So The Guy goes in to have his cancerous gazebo removed. The procedure goes well.

Except for one minor detail.

The surgeon removed the wrong gazebo!

There are probably a million gazebo (testicle) jokes I could insert here, but I ain’t goin’ down that road. I am a Guy and over the last 56 years I have grown quite fond of my gazebos, both of them, and wish them no ill will. We are a package deal. See what I did there?

A middle-aged businessman is suing a hospital trust after a surgeon removed the wrong testicle by mistake.

The man has been told that he can no longer father a child as the testicle that should have been removed is believed to be cancerous.

The 48-year-old man who lives with his new partner in Wiltshire had the operation at the Salisbury District Hospital last year.

He claims that, 40 minutes into the operation, the surgeon realised his mistake and had the healthy testicle placed “on ice” while a plastic surgeon was summoned. Although the testicle was successfully reattached…etc, etc, etc.

A Couple of Things  

Besides the obvious “woopsy daisy we cut off the wrong gazebo” stuff, there are a couple of things in this story that stand out to me. 

  1. The story says that The Guy can no longer father a child. Then it goes on to say that he lives with his new “partner”. To me, “lives with his new partner” screams that The Guy is a homo. Unless there’s some kind of new medical technology that bypasses females in the making baby bidness, being a homo precludes one from procreating with one’s partner. I know about in vitro and all that shit, but the way the story is written it sounds like The Guy is gonna go all Rump Ranger with his boyfriend and miraculously impregnate him. Ain’t gonna happen.
  2. Another thing that caught my eye was the fact that a little over a half hour into the surgery the doctors, after having put it “on ice”, reattached the healthy testicle after calling a plastic surgeon. What man, even a homo, would want to have a non-functioning gazebo reattached if it ain’t gonna work properly? Cosmetic reasons? You might as well implant a pair of golf balls into the nut sack at this point. The results would be the same, but at least The Guy would have a matching set of gazebos.
  3. Sue the fucking Gazebo Doctor and the hospital into oblivion. (which The Guy did)
  4. How’s that nationalized health care working over there, you bunch of Socialist Limeys?
  5. Obamacare – be afraid. Very afraid.
  6. Especially if you have gazebo problems.
  7. Lance Armstrong.

Dumbasses.
