Serbia using testicle cooking competition to lure tourists

From someones Blog... ;D

By ERIC MILLIKIN/Detroit Free Press

The Australian: "Tourism chiefs in Serbia are hoping their annual testicle cooking competition will do for the region what whisky did for Scotland. ... 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.

...they are hoping the festival will start to attract international visitors to sample the food. ... 'Look at how many people go to Scotland because of the whisky or how many people know Switzerland because of their cheese and chocolate.'

Eric says: Their slogan should be: Go to Serbia and have a ball. Thanks to BFF (Bizarre Fact Finder) Marie S. for sharing this.

There will have to be a "ball-off" between Colorado and Serbia, looks like.

They haven't got the
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I think the tourism commissioners need a little help in coming up with ideas, probably not the best one I've heard. With that said, I think it would be a good party and a fun time...though they have their work cut out if they're going to compete with theRockey Mountain Oysters I've had in Colorado and Kansas City.

Reminds me of that scene from Funny Farm where Chevy Chase's character breaks the local record by eating 30 lamb fries before he finally learns what they really are.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq4mqCDakVQ
