Long life of Indonesia's penis growing grandma ends: reports

An elderly Indonesian woman famed nationwide for supernatural skills in lengthening penises has died, reports said Thursday.

Reclusive Mak Erot, famed for penis extension treatment incorporating traditional herbs and Islamic prayer, died last week in Caringin village on the western coast of Java island, the Kompas daily's website reported.

Mak Erot -- who reports aged anywhere from 101 to over 130 -- prompted legions of imitations of her famous clinics, many using her famously craggy and birthmarked face to lure in anxious men.

While her legacy has been closely guarded by male descendents intent on maintaining the purity of the treatment, Mak Erot has become a pop-culture icon in everything from advertisements to teenage romantic comedy films.

Reports of he death prompted a flurry of bemused online comments from Internet users in the world's largest Muslim-majority country.

And in a related story, news outlets have learned that American Senator Barack Hussein Obama has canceled a purported trip to Jakarta, leaving some to speculate that perhaps he was hedging his bets and wondering if Mak Erot could also work wonders with sundered "balls". Also, representatives of the Reverend Jess Jackson are denying reports that certain of his "advisers" were seen in Karingin village shortly before Madam Erot's demise.
