Serbia using testicle cooking competition to lure tourists
theaustralian.com.au ^ | August 17, 2010 | Staff Writers

TOURISM chiefs in Serbia are hoping their annual testicle cooking competition will do for the region what whisky did for Scotland.

The Testicle Cooking World Championship in Ozrem takes place for the seventh time this year and is open to cooks from all over the world.

Dishes, said to have aphrodisiac qualities, are made from the testicles of animals including bull, wild boar, horse, shark, ostrich, kangaroo, donkey, turkey, goat, reindeer and elk.

Organisers admit they rarely get chefs from abroad, but they are hoping the festival will start to attract international visitors to sample the food.

I bet they rarely get testicles from abroad, either.

Don’t worry. The White House is going to sponsor a Democrat Party fundraiser by holding an “Assholes Cooking Contest”. They expect to pack the house.

I thought for a second that this was a follow up to that sauna competition in Finland.......

If they can withstand the sauna then try frying their testicles........

I was wrong tho.......

Will Jerry Lee Lewis being their guest singer, singing “Great Balls of Fire”?

How about Elvis singing “Hunka Burning Love”?

Or the Detroit Emeralds singing “You want it, I’ve got it”?

It seems more likely to do what haggis did for Scotland.

You have probably heard this one but....

A guy on holiday in Spain, feels somewhat hungry, so goes into the village restaurant. Gets the menu and after some careful study, orders the paella. Quite tasty it was too, but there was an absolutely delicious smell coming from the next table, where one of the locals, Carlos, was eating.

He calls over the waiter, and in his best holiday Spanish asks: “Tell me, what is that dish there, the one that smells so fantastic.”

The Waiter replies: Ah yes, that is made from certain rather delicate areas of prime freshly killed bull. It is then marinated in our secret sauce mix, and garnished with fresh herbs, and just a touch of garlic, with our special red wine dribbling.

“Sounds superb, may I have some please.?”

“For you sir, as a special favour. But we have none left today. Come back tomorrow, an hour or so after the bullfight finishes”

The guy arrives on cue, his meal is ready, piping hot and tastes out of this world.

He calls the waiter over again, tips him hugely, sends his compliments to the chef, but asks. “But tell me, why was my portion so much smaller than the one Carlos had yesterday?”
.
.
.
.
“ Ah well sir, sometimes the bull wins”

Growing up in North Texas, the spring roundup at the Roller Ranch would have us catching the young bull calves and castrating, vaccinating, branding, and deworming them. We would collect the testicles in buckets and clean and refrigerate them. After a couple of days work, we would have quite a few of them and carry them to the Pioneer Restaurant #3 in Wichita Falls and they would deep fry them in batter and we would have them with french fries and beer. They were tasty and most of us looked forward to the yearly festival. Sure miss the good old days.

That sonic boom you heard was Bawney Fwank heading out from Logan International.

It is rumored he was humming The Theme From The Oysterman's Ball all the way there.

I never have, but have some hunting buddies who happened to be in the Rockies at the time the ranchers were castrating bulls, and the menu that evening featured mountain oysters. Sliced thin and fried, they were reportedly a decent meal.

They sell ‘em in some of the fanciest steak houses in Ft. Worth, Texas. Just order the calf fries.

Yes! I could have cried when the only local restaurant that served them (on Friday—’fish [LOL] day’—only) was bought out & turned into a casino with just fast food.

You bet. Properly prepared, “calf fries” (another euphemism for bull nuts) are great!

There’s a restaurant in Austin that serves “lamb fries”. Those are my personal favorite.

And I’ve had beef pecker in “hot pot” in Taiwan. That I could take or leave.

Oh yeah, and “shirako” — a kind of sushi. I’ll let you look that one up yourself.
