Note to Self: Be Careful With Cell Phone Penis Pictures in Berlin…

Well it seems that a 21 year old man was arrested in Germany for sending a picture of his penis to a random woman.

BERLIN (Reuters) – A 21-year-old German man has been convicted of sending a photograph of his penis to an unknown woman via mobile phone, authorities said on Wednesday.laughingjudge.jpg

“We all had a bit of a laugh when we saw the thing,” said Christian Kropp, presiding judge at the court in the eastern town of Sondershausen.

The woman reported the sender to police after receiving the photo attachment of the man’s genitals, the court said. Officers found evidence he may have sent similar images to other women.

The man did not explain his motive but expressed remorse for the photo, Kropp said. He was fined 150 euros ($220) for distributing pornographic material.

Is it illegal to distribute porn in Germany? Who knew!
Perhaps this is the start of a new trend “Cyber flashing”. Pick a random person, somehow get their cell phone number, and then send them your penis!
Still, my favorite part of the whole story is that when the judge saw the picture, he laughed! I think perhaps the 150 Euros was too hefty a fine. The judge laughing at his penis should have been punishment enough.
