Are you short on ideas for a story or a novel? Then read the news.
It's amazing what outlandish and plain bizarre ideas you can find there...
I mean, just look at this: "Penis Panic". A mass hysteria occurred in Sudan as recently as 2003; men were gripped by the hysterical belief that a special comb or magic handshake would make their penis disappear.
"No doubt, this comb was a laser-controlled surgical robot that penetrates the skull [and passes] to the lower body and emasculates a man!! "
Sounds like a "high concept" for Michael Crichton's next bestseller: The Great Penis Robbery.
