British Teenager Cuts Off Own Penis While High On ‘Meow Meow’

Rule of thumb: if the drug’s nickname is really stupid, you should probably not do that drug.

By Jessie Lochrie

In recent horrifying severed-penis news, a 19-year old college student in Britain, reportedly high on a drug called “meow meow,” stabbed his own mother and then hacked off his penis with a knife. Emergency services found him hanging out of his bedroom window with “blood gushing from his groin,” which is a visual that will haunt me for the rest of my life. 

While both mother and teen were brought to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, they are now in stable condition. Due to the miracle of modern medicine, the teenager’s penis has apparently even been re-attached. 

"Meow meow" sounds like something Stefon would find at New York’s hottest club, but is actually the street name of a drug named mephedrone, which is gaining popularity as a cheaper and more readily available alternative to MDMA. Rule of thumb: if the drug’s nickname is really stupid, you should probably not do that drug. Meow Meow? Special K? Angel dust? Bath salts? Just say no. Also, krokodil. That shit is scary.
