That'll learn 'em

Someday, I'm sure, he'll look back on this, sit down to pee, and laugh:

A 25-year-old Egyptian man cut off his own penis to spite his family after he was refused permission to marry a girl from a lower class family, police reported Sunday.

After unsuccessfully petitioning his father for two years to marry the girl, the man heated up a knife and sliced off his reproductive organ, said a police official.

Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and guess that when he woke up at the hospital, his dad wasn't there in the room doing the whole "slow clap of hard-earned respect" thing.
