    Default Wisconsin festival sells deep-fried testicles

    Wis. festival sells deep-fried testicles - Yahoo! News

    Around here, it may be tough to pass up anything deep-fried.
    Wisconsinites have deep-fried cheese curds, candy bars and Twinkies. They now have deep-fried livestock testicles, too.
    More than 300 people paid $5 for all-you-can-eat goat, lamb and bull testicles Saturday at the ninth annual Testicle Festival at Mama's Place Bar and Grill in Elderon in central Wisconsin.
    "Once you get over the mental (aspect) of what you're eating, it's just like eating any other food, and it tastes good," Buster Hoffman said.
    Festival founder Nancy Fenske said the festival grew out of her late husband Roger's birthday party 12 years ago. They decided to have "a nut fry" at Mama's Place after bringing back lamb fries from a trip to Montana.
    The event grew every year and now they fry up to 100 pounds of testicles, she said.
    "What else can you do in a small town?" Fenske said.
    Butch Joubert, 58, likes the parts sandwiched between bread with tartar sauce. They're not so different from regular meatballs also served at the festival, he said.
    "After a few beers, you can't really tell the difference," Joubert said.

    normally I am a fan of anything that includes 'festival' 'deepfried' and 'on a stick' but I draw the line here. yuck! I think I will pass and have some deep fried cheese wrapped in some oily crust and with a dipping pan of melted butter on the side , and with some deep fried twinkies and snickers bars for dessert! *dies of massive heart attack!*
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    i've eaten bull testicles before but not deep-fried. they're quite tasty actually and the meat is incredibly soft.

    In the midwest, we've always called them "Rocky Mountain Oysters."

    Never had the guts to eat one though....

    C'mon Soj, All the balls you can eat for five bucks doesn't appeal on some level?

    Good point. I just hope they are eating the rest of the animal too. That's a lot of meat too if they're talking that many balls.
