The European or black earwig carries a spare penis. Scientists from Tokyo Metroplitan Museum pinched a male earwig’s rear end while the bugs were having sexual intercourse (apparently the Japanese are into that) and the when the penis broke off in the female the male quickly produced a backup.

John Bobbit, eat your heart out.

by the way – earwigs do not crawl in your ear any more than any other insect and they do not burrow into your brain. With all those penises they have better things to do.
