Ron Jeremy Need Not Apply

I know this isn't a Canadian political news story, but I think we've all heard enough of Rahim, Helena, Nazim et al for a while. I came across this little gem while searching for information on the implosion of the Greek debt market. I don't know how I ever missed this one the other day!

I quote from the article in the Daily Mail newspaper in the U.K.:

"Men who have had a penis enlargement have been banned from joining Indonesia’s police force. The chief of Papua’s constabulary has said artificially enhanced organs cause a ‘hindrance during training’. Applicants wanting to sign up to the force ‘will be asked whether or not his vital organ has been enlarged’, Bekto Suprapto announced today. ‘If he has, he will be considered unfit to join the police or the military,’ he added....Indonesia's remote eastern-most province is home to Papuan tribes, many of whom are known for wearing penis gourds. A low-level separatist insurgency has waged in the resources-rich part of Indonesia for decades and there is a heavy police and military presence there. Papuans use a local technique to achieve the enlargement, according to sexologist Dr Boyke Dian Nugraha, wrapping the penis with leaves from the ‘gatal-gatal’ (itchy) tree so that it swells up ‘like it has been stung by a bee’. 'We’ve been trying to advise them from doing so because it can be dangerous but they never listen to us so with this regulation, hopefully, they won’t do it anymore,' Mr Boyke added."

Now wasn't that more fun than reading about Parliamentary Committee meetings? You have to love stories like this; they make Canada's problems with our politicians seem so trivial by comparison!

For those of you (very few of you I'm sure) who aren't acquainted with Mr. Ron "The Hedgehog" Jeremy and his filmography, you can find his Wikipedia entry at:



  1. That's all well and good, but what are the rules for artificially "busty" prostitutes? :-)

  2. Apparently, according to Nazim's testimony yesterday, they weren't working girls....
