    'Turning compost' is the correct response.

    "Though the man doesnít appear to have had any episodes since, itís likely that he would need to go through a psychological evaluation before any attempt at reconstructive surgery would be made, according to the report."

    Maybe his partner, too? You know, the one with the itchy trigger finger?

    I'm surprised it never occured to him to just leave the foam alone, so he'd never have to worry about being caught short. It would be fun to be at the emergency room later when the doc asks "how long has the foan been in there?" nd the guy answers, "a couple of months. I didn't want to be caught short, ya'know".
