I had the most painful 15 minutes of baby boomer fame in history.

The surgery lasted a lot longer, almost 10 hours. Let me admit right off, I ain’t no saint. But hey, I was the victim, dude. Feminists treated me like a criminal and turned it into women’s lib cause celeb.

Remember, Lorena sliced off my manhood while I slept, jumped in a car, and tossed it out the window like a stale hot dog.

She was found not guilty by reason of…whatever, but my wife was sentenced to 45 days in a mental institution. Does that tell you anything? Hello!

♫ Reunited, and it feels soooo good. So what does a real man do after a miraculous comeback (pardon the pun)? Become a porn star. First I shot (pardon the pun again) John Wayne Bobbitt: Uncut in 1994, then I did Frankenpenis. Pretty clever movie titles, huh? I thought them them up. And you reckoned I was just another big stiff. Howard Stern had me on his show 7 times. I wouldn’t say I was a pop culture icon, but lots of baby boomers related to me. You should see my fan mail.

Yes, my band, The Severed Parts, didn’t catch on.  One snot-nosed critic said, the group could never “pull it together.”

I moved to Vegas where nothing I did stayed there. It’s true, I had some trouble with the law. OK, 7 times. Think maybe my feminist enemies and envious old boomer prosecutors were after my ass? I got a total of 7 days and some community service for all the arrests. Yo, lots of 7’s in my life, but that number falls short when it comes to certain stats.

I’ve had plenty of honest work in Vegas: bartender, limo driver, and tow truck driver. I was also a minister of a Universal Life Church. But you you never hear about that stuff.

Not to beat a dead horse, but “sweet, innocent” Lorena was arrested for giving her mother a couple of knuckle sandwiches. How low can you get!? She’s had a kid but never married. I wouldn’t do that.

Just to show I harbor no ill will, we appeared on television together where I apologized for being less than perfect. Lorena said I must still love her because I send Valentines and flowers.
