> "Case 1–A 60-year-old man said that he was changing the plug of his
> Dustette vacuum cleaner in the nude while his wife was out shopping. It
> ‘turned itself on’ and caught his penis, causing tears around the external
> meatus… Multiple lacerations of the glans [were] repaired with catgut.
> "Case 2–A 65-year-old railway signalman was in his signal box when he
> down to pick up his tools and ‘caught his penis in a Hoover Dustette,
> happened to be switched on.’ He suffered extensive lacerations to the
> glans.
> “Case 3–A 49-year-old man was vacuuming his friend’s staircase in a
> loose-fitting dressing gown, when, intending to switch the machine off, he
> leaned across to reach the plug; ‘at that moment his dressing gown became
> undone and his penis was sucked into the vacuum cleaner.’”

> But even the doctors are snickering, the cads. The report quoted above
