If you ask a man what the worst possible thing is that could happen to him, one of two things will be said: either he will talk about losing his job or he will talk about losing his penis.
So, when a man accidentally shoots his penis off, that’s a big deal. Right?
Not for Cedrick Jelks from Jacksonville, Florida.
Jelks reportedly sat down on a firearm he had forgotten was in the driver’s seat of his car, and it resulted in him shooting the tip of his penis clear off his body.
The problem? Jelks plead guilty to cocaine possession in 2004, which means he is now officially a convicted felon in the eyes of the law. He served five days in county jail and had to pay a fine of $438, and him sitting down on a firearm in his own car and consequently blasting his penis off makes him a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
If prosecuted for possession of this firearm, he faces a minimum three-year prison sentence.
Oh, and he also has no penis.
So, if you ask a man his opinion on the worst possible thing that could happen to him, and he says “losing his penis,” tell him this story.
