Now, there's hope for John Wayne Rabbit:

Scientists Grow Artificial Penis in Lab

Indeed, the replacement penises worked like a charm. :lol:

The replacement organ would be grown on a penis-shaped matrix seeded with cells from the patient's own body.

I wonder if a "French Tickler"-shaped matrix is available?

They didn't go into very much detail. Are they saying that they got a "penis shaped matrix" and placed stem-cells in it? I wonder if they attached the new penises or if they just grew them out of the rabits "groin area" using transplanted stem cells.

I wonder how long it will be before people have an extra penis transplanted. Just imagine, armies of Choobies with 4-5 penes.....

Do you do.......

Would penis cancer manfest itself as a big tumor? If that's the case I can't see too many men getting treatment.
