Good Eats At The Turkey Testicle Festival

Yesterday afternoon, I attended the area's 17th annual Turkey Testicle Festival which featured cheap beer, live music and deep fried turkey testicles. Yes, folks, turkeys do have testicles. This seemed to be a source of much confusion among the crowd and I heard one young lady exclaim "Yes, turkeys do have testicles. They are mammals!". I shook my head. I'm sure most of you know that turkeys are birds and birds are NOT mammals, and that the testicle is not a gland that's exclusive to mammals. While birds do indeed have testicles, they tend to keep their testicles inside their bodies as opposed to most mammals who let it all hang out.

Anyway, a good time was had by all and the whole event benefited a great charity. Below, you'll find a video of me sampling the fried turkey balls. Thank God it's only once a year.
