You Know the Lorena Bobbitt Story. But Not All of It.
Slimes ^ | Jan. 30, 2019 | By Amy Chozick

Posted on 01/31/2019 12:57:07 PM PST by Paladin2

MANASSAS, Va. — Lorena is very matter-of-fact about the whole thing. There, she said as she drove us around in her Kia on a recent afternoon, was the hospital where surgeons reattached John Wayne Bobbitt’s penis after she cut it off with a kitchen knife as he slept on the night of June 23, 1993.

Fifteen minutes away, near Maplewood Drive, was the gravel-strewn field where she disposed of the detached penis out the driver’s side window. So, why did she throw it away? I asked. “I tried to drive the car, obviously, but I had this thing in my hand so I couldn’t drive so I got rid of it.” Obviously.

Further down the road is the nail salon where she worked and fled to that night. “I’m not a vindictive person because I told them where it was,” Lorena Gallo, as she is now known, said. By “them” she means the police who, sometime after 4:30 a.m., clutched their loins and went digging through the overgrown roadside grass for the missing member. They found it, put it on ice in a Big Bite hot dog box from a nearby 7-Eleven and rushed it to the hospital where in a nine-and-a-half-hour feat of urological and plastic surgery it was reattached and restored to (almost) full function.

These are the details everyone knows and the ones Lorena recites with the stoicism of the waiter at the Tortino Mare Italian restaurant who hours earlier had relayed the specials for us. It’s the actual story, she said — the one about a young immigrant who endured years of domestic violence, was raped by her husband that night, had nowhere to go and finally snapped — that she wanted to talk to me about.

Exactly what I thought when I saw this story somewhere else and though, thank God people have the sense not to post this on FR.

1) She’s the victim
2) It’s Trump’s fault

Because someone posts an article you would not doesn’t mean that person lacks sense.

Your analysis is nonsensical.

1) Surgeons re-attached it, and he made a porno.

2) King Missile recorded a "song" called Detachable Penis.

Here’s a little story of a man named John,
A poor ex-marine with a little fraction gone.
It seems one night after gettin’ with the wife,
She loped off his schlong with the swipe of a knife.
(penis, that is)

Well the next thing you know there a Ginsu by his side,
And Lorena’s in the car takin Willie for a ride.
She soon got tired of her purple-headed friend
And tossed him out the car as she headed round the bend.
(picker shrubs, wheel hubs)

She sent to the cops and confessed to the attack.
And they called out the hounds just to get his weenie back.
They sniffied and they barked, then they pointed over there,
Too John Wayne’s Henry that was wavin’ in the air.
(By a fence, evidence)

Now Peter and John couldn’t stay apart too long,
So a dic-doc said, Hey I can fix your dong.
A needle and some thread’s just the thing you’re gonna need.
And the world held its breath ‘til they heard that Johnny peed.
(Stitched seam, straight stream)

Well, he healed and he hardened and he took his case to court
With a cock-eyed lawyer since his assets came up short.
They cleared her of assault and acquitted him of rape,
And his pecker was the only thing they didn’t have on tape.
(Video, that is. unexposed, case closed)

One of many potential reasons why I divorced my first wife. I wouldn’t put it past her.

Back in 1993,I was driving the girls in my brownie Girl Scout troop home when one of the girls asked about this situation. I was in a very difficult spot and will never forget it. They knew more details than I did. I realized at that moment that parents don’t filter what their kids listen too.

"It won't be long now."
That's what Lorena said.

And in 1993 the internet was just starting for online consumers who were advanced enough to have AOL or Prodigy and a 2400 baud modem.

The “Hot/Crazy Matrix” partly explains the situation.

"She cut off her husbands wiener, what else is there to know"

Not being a Lieyah [think a small sample of NYC accents here], I only recently found out that motivation is a large part of the The Law.
