Ow! Ow! (This Sceptered Isle Part CCLXXI)

Here is a disturbing story from the London Daily Mail.

It's even more disturbing when you consider that - on average - citizens in the U.K. have but one ovary and one testicle to begin with.  But perhaps the most disturbing of all is this statement:

“The NHS normally pays out around £20,000 if the wrong testicle has been removed.”
Uhhh . . . normally?  Normally??
Oh well, surely no price is too large to pay for the security of a national single-payer medical insurance plan.
