Balls-up leaves testicle cookers hanging (That is actually the headline)
news.com.au ^

Posted on 09/07/2005 3:21:14 PM PDT by LesbianThespianGymnasticMidget

AN AUSTRALIAN hoaxer left organisers of the world testicle-cooking championship hanging after claiming he was Australia's leading kangaroo testicle cook.

A man calling himself Nigel Bevan failed to turn up for the event after contacting organisers to boast of his credentials and order a supply of kangaroo testicles for the competition. Local villagers in Sumska Kuca in northern Serbia turned out in huge numbers to see what delights the Australian could come up with and a band was ready to strike up to welcome the mysterious Bevan.

But they were disappointed and organisers were out of pocket after buying the kangaroo testicles but with no one to cook them.

"We get cooks from all over Europe who come here to northern Serbia to take on Serbian chefs, but we have never had a cook from as far away as Australia, so when we heard that Nigel Bevan, Australia's top testicle chef, was on his way with a team of Australian chefs we were really excited," championship organiser Ljubomir Erovic said.

"The caller told us cooked kangaroo testicles were a popular delicacy in Australia, and gave us the details of where we could get kangaroo testicles from so we could have them ready when Mr Bevan and his team arrived.

Advertisement: "We were disappointed when no Australians arrived, we even had a band ready to welcome them." Mr Erovic, who arranged for a hotel for Mr Bevan and a VIP reception, said the man claiming to be the chef told him he had read about the contest in an Australian gourmet magazine.

In the end a team of Serbian chefs called Boemi (Bohemians) from Gornji Milanovac won after beating off stiff competition from 11 other teams.

"They prepared wild boar and bull testicles which delighted the jury", Mr Erovic said.

"We are sorry Mr Bevan could not make it and hope he might still turn up next year once he realises that jokers have been pretending to be him.

"We would like to compare the testicles of a kangaroo to those of wild boars and bulls. That would really make our unique competition the world championships."

I can honestly state that I have never thought "You know? I'm really craving some testicles right now.". But that's just me.

I'd have thought that would be apparent.

Too bad the event organizers were left hanging.

I bet the jury must have thought the cream sauce was orgasmic.
