Diners Can 'Have a Ball' at Testicle Festival
Associated Press
Fri Mar 27, 9:55 pm ET

OAKDALE, Calif. – The fundraising idea may seem a little nuts, but Oakdale's annual Testicle Festival is always a big hit. On Monday, volunteers with the town's Rotary Club plan to fry up 400 pounds of the private parts of bulls and serve them to diners who pay $50 apiece for the sit-down meal.

The event, whose proceeds also benefit the Oakland Cowboy Museum, has drawn an average of 450 people and last year raised $28,000.

It's common practice on cattle ranches for young male bovines to be castrated into steers, which after the initial loss, eventually makes them more docile and easier to handle. Fans of the delicacy, also referred to as "mountain oysters," come from around the state.

According to Rotarians, everyone who buys a ticket is guaranteed to "have a ball."

There's another "Testicle Festival" near Missoula, MT during the summer as well. It's a giant party there!
Is this the same grand plan that our government has for us?
:22yikes: So, what are you sayin' ??? - Go out and have a ball (or 2) :shock:
You have to be "nuts" if you think we are going to miss this one! It would be a pretty "ball-sy" move if we did!:wrong:
it only draws tourists from New York:lol::lol:
Then someone told them what they were. :eek:
I am sure someone had a mouthful to say about that!
I heard a lot of the guys from San Fran are headed to this one.:joke:
$50 for that meal !!! Why that's NUTS :shrug:
The festival in Missoula is scheduled for the next 4 years, I guess the world isn't supposed to end before then..
I tried to get a picture of the bill board along I-90, dang cell phone camera!! They have the dates listed for 4 more years on a bill board. We were in Missoula last summer and some little old lady said "is that where they were all running around naked". We told them "no that was Sturgis".
same type of festival here each year in September called calf fry. Huge attendance???????? cant much go it myself
I'd bet that anyone who shows up at this event went and saw "Brokeback Mountain". :eek:4:
