Your Thigh? Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

SEATTLE —  A Mason County man who lost his penis to flesh-eating bacteria in prison has won a $300,000 settlement from the Washington Department of Corrections.

The 61-year-old man, Charlie Manning, told The Seattle Times on Monday that he settled because he wants the ordeal to be over. The department said in a statement it settled to save the cost of litigation.

Manning was serving time in 2004 for threatening a neighbor. When he became ill at the Stafford Creek prison near Aberdeen it was diagnosed as a reaction to cold medicine.

By the time Manning was airlifted to a Seattle hospital with an internal abscess, doctors had to remove several pounds of flesh from his pelvic region.  He lost his weenie, folks!!!

Surgeons made a replacement penis with skin from his thigh.  This is a horrible situation.  There are lessons to be learned (reinforced):

1. Crime doesn’t pay!

2. Losing one’s weenie in prison does.

Malpractice leading to penis removal?  $300,000.  Good health-care?  Priceless.  So guys, if you think you’re having a bad day, remember Charlie.  If your penis is itchy, see a doctor…and don’t say anything about cold medicines!
