Eighth Annual Testicle Festival, Woodruff, Utah
A ball was had last weekend at the Black Gold Cattle Company's eighth annual Testicle Festival in Woodruff, Utah. Or rather, 250 pounds of balls.
During branding time, it is customary to neuter the young bulls and feast on the resulting delicacy—word has it the meat is unexpectedly juicy and tastes a bit like chicken. The bull testicles go by the more appetizing moniker Rocky Mountain Oysters, or "cowboy caviar." Nut Specialists dipped the "oysters" into beer batter and deep-fried them in lard. The "caviar" came with a cheeseburger and fries for a reasonable $5.
The festivities paid tribute to cowboy traditions—rodeo events like bull riding took place beside the joyous fried-testicle consumption—and raised almost $30,000 for charity.
