A "briss" gone terribly wrong...
Two questions: Who was the mohel, and just how lengthy was the "initiation" - it sounds like they saved on catering costs by doing "the procedure" at the Bar Mitzva. Guess the Manischewitz "Mad Dog 20/20" really packed a punch...
A traditional circumcision ceremony in South Africa went awry over the weekend when a policeman had his nose bitten off.
The policeman had tried to put paid to an argument between a man and his family during the ceremony in the Eastern Cape province, when the man attacked him, biting off his nose.
The aggrieved policeman then shot the 30-year-old man in the chest, the SAPA news agency reported.
Both are now recovering in hospital.
Circumcision is a rite of passage for some South African boys who go through a lengthy initiation before undergoing the procedure.
Well, at least the kid wasn't the one needing hospitalization.
