Several observations, one article

Attackers chop off man's 'magic' leg

1. My mind hit the gutter in a record 0.2 seconds upon reading this headline.

2. Thank god I don't have any "magic" appendages. Removal of said appendage by machete/sickle/whatever seems like it would hurt, drunk or not.

3. Do you think the leg still heals? How about chronic pain? Do you think the "migraineurs" and "fibromyalgeurs" would give up their Dilaudid for a touch of the decomposing leg? Along those lines, where in the ER would you store it? The Med Room or the Dirty Utility Room?

I'd store the Magic Leg (TM) in triage. You only get to come back to a room if the Magic Leg (ie placebo effect) doesn't work. Plenty of anxious old ladies and malingerers will be cured on the spot.

Put it on the wall in a box with a glass front. Hang a little hammer next to it with a sign reading, "In case of Big BooBoo, break glass."

Do I win?

Best story line..."... we are looking for the miscreants, as well as the leg..."

Yikes! Also gross! Even if it were true why would they not think thy would be cursed for hurting a "Holy man" and taking something that didn't belong to them? I don't see blessings flowing from that!
