Oooooh, I thought you meant people that lived next to Janet Reno.
2003-04-11 07:55:33 AM  
ummmmm .... yeah
2003-04-11 07:56:06 AM  
They all went nuts!

Rasmussen said he talked his 57-year-old wife, Pearl, into trying them two years ago after she'd drank a half bottle of wine.

"She's from Boston. She thought I was crazy," Rasmussen said. "Now I can't keep her away from them."

You had to get her drunk on half a bottle of wine to try her hands at the nuts? Sweet got I would have dumped here years ago.

He wasnt talking about his nuts was he?
2003-04-11 07:57:44 AM  
Was I the only one who read that as 'tentacle'?
2003-04-11 07:58:08 AM  
Janet's girlfriend will be so disappionted.

How can any self-respecting man EVER eat another animals testicles??? It makes no sense! I would grab my crotch and writhe in imagined agony at even getting a glimpse of another's testicles battered up and ready to eat.

I went with my girlfriend to a 4th of July fish fry in Oklahoma at her relatives farm one year. She tricked me into eating fried bull nuts. She told me they were fried mushrooms.
2003-04-11 08:06:44 AM  
Wimp. I have no problem eating chicken breasts.
2003-04-11 08:08:16 AM  
Picking this article so soon after the vasectomy one can't be an accident. You guys are CRUEL !

I like it ;)

So far we have chop and chomp, what else can you come up with ??
2003-04-11 08:08:36 AM  
The experience of placing a human testicle into a human mouth is a gift from God. That I understand. But this other.....
2003-04-11 08:11:34 AM  
I'm trying to come up with a way to work the term 'ball gag' into a joke, and failing.

Anyone else want a try ?
2003-04-11 08:12:20 AM  
Well yeah!
I'll stick breats in my mouth all day. And God willing all night too!
But testicles are completely different.
At least to me.
Or something.

Q: Why did the batboy paste a nekkid picture of Tonya Harding with Michael Jackson's nose on the end of a bat and then smear it with fluid from an old dog's anal scent gland?

I almost afraid to ask ...
2003-04-11 08:27:28 AM  
Heh...every Friday night is a "Testicle Festival" at my place.

2003-04-11 08:28:11 AM  
I missed it! Nuts!!
2003-04-11 08:28:42 AM  
I'm so broke right now that I'm thinking of lopping off my Labrador Retriever's nuts and frying them up for lunch.
Canine Oysters!!
2003-04-11 08:28:51 AM  
Testicle Festival, woa, its a rhyme..

~goes back to smoking crack and reading War and Peace~

Why do I have the urge to photoshop your question?

Save me from myself !

Quick, someone chew through my ball sack!

I have a friend in Reno. I should check this out!
2003-04-11 08:44:45 AM  
Her name was Reno, and she dance across the sand. She sucked my testicles, and blew my "tract of Land"

A: Cuz he wanted to see the ball gag.

Big Balls

I'm ever upper class high society
God's gift to ballroom notoriety
I always fill my ballroom
The event is never small
The social pages say I've got
The biggest balls of all

I've got big balls
I've got big balls
And they're such big balls
Dirty big balls
And he's got big balls
And she's got big balls
But we've got the biggest balls of them all

And my balls are always bouncing
My ballroom always full
And everybody cums and cums again
If your name is on the guest list
No one can take you higher
Everybody says I've got
Great balls of fire


Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they're held for pleasure
They're the balls that I like best
My balls are always bouncing
To the left and to the right
It's my belief that my big balls
Should be held every night


And I'm just itching to tell you about them
Oh we had such wonderful fun
Seafood cocktail, crabs, crayfish...

Ball sucker

What the hell?
2003-04-11 09:08:12 AM  
ya know, I'll try 'almost' anything once, but I dunno about this.

Yeah, but swallowing is another matter entirely.
2003-04-11 09:20:39 AM  
This page is comedy gold. Not only does it include the tastes like chicken cliché, but there's a woman asking for a recipe for her husband's warm & salties because he's going in for a vasectomy.
2003-04-11 09:57:02 AM  
Hmmm, after a bit of googling, I have discovered that a common feature of "testicle Festivals" is often a wet t shirt contest.

Ferinstance, on this page you could follow the link that is labeled "warning: adult content" and find lots of wet boobie goodness.
And for those who are so inclined, there are a few wet weeners on display too.
2003-04-11 10:00:30 AM  
*sigh*, I suppose just to keep everything Farkworthy, some stuff on the above link is NSFW (like anyone couldn't tell)
2003-04-11 10:00:36 AM  
I hate you :(


Not safe for work or wimmin..
2003-04-11 10:01:46 AM  
I figured the NSFW part, but I didn't know there was decrepit dick!
2003-04-11 10:26:03 AM  
Janet Reno? Testicles? Repeat.
2003-04-11 10:39:36 AM  
And one more....

That's just nuts.

I never did like em. I've eaten every part of a cow except the moo, (I grew up on a dairy farm) but there are a few that I'm not going to revisit. Balls, brains, and one that I can't identify, might be the pancreas for all I know. It was all cooked in one big pot. I called it Steven King Stew.
2003-04-11 10:44:22 AM  
A friend of mine who grew up in Oklahoma was the first to inform me that calf fries are regional delicacy. Just as common and frequent as fish fries are elsewhere. Ugh.
2003-04-11 10:46:17 AM  
Those Rasmussen guys are everywhere today. Eating nuts and filming them...
2003-04-11 10:53:16 AM  
[image from too old to be available] Aw man... I thought you said "Tentacle festival."

Hytes Xian

God I'm dense. It was the batboy thing, I wasn't thinking baseball, I was thinking bats with wings or freaks, etc.

Too clever for me obviously :)

Here's a picture of the Rocky Mountain Oyster.

They seem to be a delicacy here in western Colorado. Over here there are at least a couple of restaurants that serve these as an appetizer. I went to a business meeting at one of these places and passed on them being served to me. The rest of my peers could not get enough of them, which I thought was amusing. I figure that I am pretty much on top of the food chain, but I draw the line eating animal testicles.

Remember: You Are What You Eat!
2003-04-11 11:00:57 AM  
I like the picture in the article. The look on the kids face as his mom is chowing down on the sheep's testicle is priceless. hmm sounds like a photoshop op
2003-04-11 11:24:22 AM  
now that's what I'm talking about!

Virginia...nuff said
2003-04-11 11:36:25 AM  
Hey, I'm a local for this event, and I can tell you fried bull testes are pretty dang good with some hot sauce and a cold beer. Come on over to Reno, Farkers! Party at my house, and we'll go eat cow balls!
