Oh, I love Archer. Very funny.

OK chaps. Prepare to cringe.

Unlucky in love Yang Hu was so fed up with not having a girlfriend that he chopped off his own penis -because he had no real use for it.

The depressed 26-year-old believed there was no chance of ever finding a partner due to his long work hours.

So in desperation he cut off his penis in a bid to stop himself thinking about finding love.

Realising his mistake Yang CYCLED to hospital to get treatment only to be sent home by shocked doctors who told him to retrieve his severed penis so they could attempt to reattach it.

However, when he returned he had lost too much blood and so surgeons were unable to save it.

Yang's friends said that he had been increasingly depressed about the fact that since moving to the city he could not find a girlfriend.

They said that his long hours working in a clothing factory in Jiaxing, in Zhejiang province in east China, meant he he doubted he would ever have a chance to meet a woman.

That's going to make social situations awkward.

Friend: Hey, yang, what's up- er I mean, How's it hangin- ugh, no, i mean, how's it going- D'oh!

~~~

You thought hitting a bump on a bike was uncomfortable before.

~~~

At least no one can call him a dick.

~~~

You know, being circumcised later in life rather than as a baby doesn't mean you have to add interest. It's not a late car payment

~~~

Least he doesn't work for Nathan's.

Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

The mother of a Kenyan teenager who was gang-raped and then thrown in a pit latrine breaking her back has told the BBC that she wants the suspects arrested and for "justice to be done".

Hundreds of protesters in Kenya have handed over a petition to police demanding justice for the 16-year-old teenager who is referred to as Liz to protect her identity.

The three men accused of gang-raping her were ordered by police to cut grass as punishment.
