Mr Totoro is one of around 1,000 men who suffer from elephantiasis in the Kisarawe district, where the infection rate is currently running at 1%.

"I am rather shocked by the way my scrotum has swollen," he said.

Understatement. Of. The Year.

There is a video at ebaum's somewhere and it shows an old guy walkin aroun with his sack scrapin the ground. Kinda weird.

It's Testes Day on FARK!

(Seriously... two ball-related articles in such a short time really makes one wonder about what the hell is going on...)

What, no pics?
2003-03-06 05:53:49 PM  
Someone please find a photo of a kid bouncing around on one of those balls with the cartoon character head on top. I hope someone knows the toy I'm talking about.

Elephantitus is transfered by mosquitos?!!!

Anybody else find this to be truly, truly frightening?

I'm never leaving this country.

"Hi, I'm Severini Tarimo. And I'M the face of testicular elephantitis."
2003-03-06 05:55:22 PM  
That makes my nuts hurt just thinking about it.

2003-03-06 05:57:02 PM  
Elephantiasis of the testicles. (NSFW?)
2003-03-06 05:57:26 PM  
I wonder what the reporter did to get this story. "Hey Dan, we want to you write about giant swollen scrotums."
2003-03-06 05:59:15 PM  
The "elephantiasis of the scrotum" picture was always my favorite in the high school biology textbooks. I mean, they didn't point it out but there was this huge unnamed thing between the guy's legs and we were all like "holy shiat, that must be his sack!"

Ah, I wish I was still so easily amused.
2003-03-06 05:59:32 PM  
Fark won't let me link to it directly, but you can find it via GIS.
2003-03-06 05:59:48 PM  
LOL. BBC. They can take the most ridiculous shiat so seriously it makes you wonder if they just explode in laughter when the mic gets turned off. Bunch a closet Pythons, those guys.

While reading this article, one important thing came to my attention, and that is that "Giant Swollen Scrotums" would be an excellent name for a rock band.

I'll show a swollen scrotum....

That made no sense.
2003-03-06 06:00:23 PM  
Ah, thanks for the pic. I'd rather see the face anyway.
2003-03-06 06:01:43 PM  
i didnt even want to read this article
2003-03-06 06:03:44 PM  
...and Men's Anatomy Day on Fark rolls on!! More articles about the prostate gland after this short break.
2003-03-06 06:04:52 PM  
No one has photoshopped Nut-sac squirrel's balls on to Totoro (as in Tonari no Totoro) yet??
2003-03-06 06:04:52 PM  
"I am rather shocked by the way my scrotum has swollen"
Now I know what my headstone will say.

Reminds me of a Flash game posted on Fark a while back:

Am I missing something? His balls don't look that big to me.
2003-03-06 06:08:51 PM  
I've got a picture of a guy with elephantitis of the nuts! It's really tasty!

Swollen scrotum myths dispelled

Blimey! Don't recal any of those. I must have fallen asleep during my Mythology class.

2003-03-06 06:13:14 PM  
Okay then why does my penis swell to 19 inches?

That is what I want to know!
2003-03-06 06:13:22 PM  
americans are next.. they will evolve huge nutsaqs to do away with the need to buy couches to sit on watching "american gladiator survivor"
2003-03-06 06:14:06 PM  

This Link Requires Big Balls!!:0)

They should get Johnny to show them that film, "Your Testicles and You." It sure set Tommy straight.

Reminds me of the saddest story I ever heard about an American POW's in WW2.

An american soldier (who recently survived the Batan Death March) was in a Jap prison camp sick with Beri-Beri(?) a condition that causes your kidneys to shut down and you retain fluids. This guy was naked from the waste down and his testicles had swollen to the size of 16" softballs. Then he had to be taken by truck to another camp 50 miles away over a dirt road.

That story still makes me cringe.

Well dip my nuts.
