Japanese researchers have discovered something unusual about sea slugs. According to the Royal Society Journal Biology Letters, a particular group of sea slugs shed their penes after sex and grow them back again, the Telegraph reports.

"No other animal is known to repeatedly copulate using such 'disposable penes'," researchers said of the red and white shell-less slug, known as Chromodoris reticulata, that can be found in the ocean waters of Southeast Asia.

UPDATE: Researchers have discoverd that in some circles, such as in the political world, when one trys to rid one dick, another one is ready, willing and able to takes its place.

I like straight dope

I read it whenever I grab a copy of the Metro. I usually just scan it and then put it back. Gary Singh's stuff is good too.

I also remember when Dan Savage coined the term Santorum (although I think it was from the SF rag.) That was ridiculously funny. In fact way more funny than detachable penises.
