Man High on Drugs Rips Part of His Penis Off

In a gruesome twist, a Columbus man ripped off part of his penis while high on hallucinogenic mushrooms. He was found kneeling outside a middle school in Ypsilanti, Michigan, bloody from the waist down.

This happened last week by the way, but it's getting reported all over the place now. (Probably because it's only now clear that he was mutilating his genitals with his bare motherloving hands.)

“In terms of vital signs, they were as low as they could go without being dead — I could only assume due to the blood loss and the shock and trauma to the body,” Sgt. Geoff Fox told the Detroit Free Press on scene.

The 41-year-old is now in stable condition — and don't ask us how. His name has not been released.

Most noteworthy are the chemical's possible effects on the mind. Some people may experience hallucinations, panic, psychosis and the inability to discern fantasy from reality.

Don't do drugs, kids.
