When I was a cop beat reporter in Macon, Ga., the cops always told me that dometic violence calls were the toughest to handle because you never knew what you were going to encounter. Apparently that's a universal truth. This poor schlub in Cambodia gets drunk, gets mad at his wife (what male among us hasn't done that?), throws a sandal at her, then his female in-laws hold him down and his wife retaliates by ... well, read the story:

Police say woman stabbed husband's penis

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - A Cambodian woman stabbed her husband's penis with a knife during an argument in which she accused him of being a violent drunk, police said Monday.

Tuy Narin, 35, attacked 37-year-old Chhun Saran earlier this month in Kandal province near the capital Phnom Penh, said Mang Penh, a local police officer.

Tuy Narin called her husband a drunkard, prompting him to retaliate by throwing a sandal at her, Mang Penh said. Tuy Narin's mother and two sisters then wrestled the outnumbered husband to the floor and his angry wife stabbed him with a knife, the police officer said.

The victim, who appeared to have been drinking, required seven stitches at a local hospital but the injury was "not life-threatening," he added.

The assault happened on Oct. 9, according to Koh Santepheap (Island of Peace) newspaper.

Chhun Saran withdrew a complaint against his wife after relatives intervened and urged the couple to reconcile, Mang Penh said.

I won't draw any conclusions about genital paranoia, but it was Willie who passed along the juicy news item about the guy who was found naked while pinned under his girlfriend's gate.

And it was Willie who sent the story of a man who celebrated his birthday wearing only nacho cheese.

I'm not saying anything, Willie. I'm just sayin'.
