Testicle tasters taking it on the chin
Serbia, perhaps feeling nondescript, since 2004 entered the culinary world by holding a testicle tasting contest, all comers are welcome.
While many foodies enjoy watching not eating the unusual, from Gordon Ramsey's Hells Kitchens recipes for Haggis, or Asian diners tucking into a potentially lethal puffer fish to Fear Factor's Joe Rogan badgering contestants to eat raw baseball sized buffalo testicles, raw worms or sheeps' eyes. Regardless what foo foo sauces used to mask it's original contents. Many viewers recoil in horror as diners all consume what we normally deem risky or repulsive.
Not to be outdone in the world of culinary arts, Serbia since 2004 have entered into the world of happenstance, perhaps to be known as the epi-centre of culinary expertise by holding an annual testicle eating championship.
It seems this Serbian Chefs enjoy seeking out every imaginable creature, four legs or not in their quest to cook and consume the testicles of all god's creatures. Fear Factor has nothing on these men.
The Serbian men tout an increase in libido upon eating ostrich testicles to camel testicles full or rich testosterone goodness, all washed down with a fine ale, presuming one must be pretty hammered to get up enough bravado while showing their machismo as they chow down on animal nuts smothered in a creamy bechamel sauce.
While Germany is world famous for it's ale, the Swiss for it's chocolate and the French for it's wine, Serbia will be taking it on the chin as the testicle taste champions of the world.
Contestants from countries from all over the world, including Canada have entered to participate in showing whose the cock of the walk. To date, all foreign contestants have gone home beaten by the locals.
On a final note, two notable americans were named honourary winners such as U.S. President Barack ObamaBarack Obama for his stance on the economy and world affairs and U.S. pilot Chelsey Sullenberger for landing a disabled passenger jet into the Hudson River saving all lives aboard.
Me thinks Chelsey Sullenberger if he had a choice to prove his machismo would rather take another run into the Hudson River with a planeload of passengers than swallow a mouthful of kangaroo nuts. I think Obama would do the same.
While Serbia may lay claim to the most testicles tasted, one can be sure somewhere, someone in the Catholic Archdiocese knows someone in their employ who beat that record hands down!
