Diners can 'have a ball' at testicle festival. - March 30th 2009, 01:22 AM

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29923711/ The fundraising idea may seem a little nuts, but Oakdale's annual Testicle Festival is always a big hit. On Monday, volunteers with the town's Rotary Club plan to fry up 400 pounds of the private parts of bulls and serve them to diners who pay $50 apiece for the sit-down meal. The event, whose proceeds also benefit the Oakland Cowboy Museum, has drawn an average of 450 people and last year raised $28,000. It's common practice on cattle ranches for young male bovines to be castrated into steers, which after the initial loss, eventually makes them more docile and easier to handle. Fans of the delicacy, also referred to as "mountain oysters," come from around the state. According to Rotarians, everyone who buys a ticket is guaranteed to "have a ball."

I know people who actually eat mountain oysters. Not my thing however and I hope I never have to eat any. I also can't believe they have a festival for that.

What I've always wondered is: When you bite into them do they explode into a spermy mess in your mouth? I mean that's pretty damn foul.

Here's a link discussing how to actually make them, for those that are curious.

I personally would be open to trying them atleast once, I know people that have eaten them before, and they turned out al- well actually, maybe I shouldn't eat them :P

They did this on Fear Factor. But I don't believe the testicles were fried.

What Jack said right there has made me never want to try them.... I'm in fear now
I can't believe how much money they raised though.
