A festival so nuts we can't even make this up!

Well, they say everything is bigger in Texas so when it comes to festivals, Texas goes balls to the wall, especially during the Testicle Festival in Fredricksburg.

Ever been to a testicle festival? You should gonad!

It's the Texas Testicle Festival in Fredericksburg, TX on Saturday, March 5th

The festival takes place at 7905 Old San Antonio Road in Fredericksburg and it includes a testicle eating contest, plenty of booze, plenty of live music, and some serious braggin' rights!

I mean who isn't gonna brag about eating the most testicles in the great state of Texas?

Okay, you have to forgive us for the inappropriate puns. We all know that when it comes to testicle jokes, people, maybe men especially... can feel over-sensitive about them.

Some can get downright testes.

So, if this is your first time to hear about testicles being a bit of a delicacy, take heart, you are not alone. Cowboys however have been battering and frying these bad boys for decades and we all know true Texas cowboys have seriously big ... appetites.

Texans call them Mountain Oysters, Rocky Mountain Oysters or Bull Fries.

Referred to as Rocky Mountain Oysters in polite company the most popular way to prepare testicles is to gently batter and fry them.

We've included a Youtube video from Food Insider on how to prepare and cook Mountain Oysters from the legendary restaurant, The Buckhorn Exchange, who might arguably be the authority on frying bull testicles since they've been cooking and serving them for over 125 years.

We're even willing to look the other way ( and cough) at the fact this place isn't from Texas.

One more... Here is the link to tickets because we know, if you go to the Testicle Festival you are sure to have a ball! 

Okay, we'll stop.
