The first thing that The Girlfriend© texts me during the working week is usually, Good morning, honey or some derivation thereof. That said, it was a little disturbing to read the following, first thing this morning:
“25 years since Lorena Bobbitt cut off her husband’s penis.”
All right. Thanks.
For those of you who are either too young to know the reference, or are simply not aware of it, Lorena Bobbitt became somewhat of a celebrity for chopping off John Wayne’s penis (her husband, not the actor with the cowboy hat) on June 23, 1993, and then infamously threw it out of her car, into a field. So as not to make it seem like this was an unprovoked attack, she did claim he had raped her earlier that night, so there’s plenty of wrongdoing to go around.
John Wayne Bobbitt became quite popular in the pop culture of the nineties and went on to have a moderately successful career in porn after the incident, so every cloud and all that.
Still, there are a thousand and one ways to get famous in this world… and let me be crystal, I choose any other one!
