Wis. festival sells deep-fried testicles
Sun May 13, 2:56 PM ET

Around here, it may be tough to pass up anything deep-fried.

Wisconsinites have deep-fried cheese curds, candy bars and Twinkies. They now have deep-fried livestock testicles, too.

More than 300 people paid $5 for all-you-can-eat goat, lamb and bull testicles Saturday at the ninth annual Testicle Festival at Mama's Place Bar and Grill in Elderon in central Wisconsin.

"Once you get over the mental (aspect) of what you're eating, it's just like eating any other food, and it tastes good," Buster Hoffman said.

Festival founder Nancy Fenske said the festival grew out of her late husband Roger's birthday party 12 years ago. They decided to have "a nut fry" at Mama's Place after bringing back lamb fries from a trip to Montana.

The event grew every year and now they fry up to 100 pounds of testicles, she said.

"What else can you do in a small town?" Fenske said.

Butch Joubert, 58, likes the parts sandwiched between bread with tartar sauce. They're not so different from regular meatballs also served at the festival, he said.

"After a few beers, you can't really tell the difference," Joubert said.


This may be a nutty festival, but it raises a few questions. Is the theme song "Great Balls of Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis? Are the festivities kicked off by someone shouting "Play Ball!"? Do they have a beauty pagent to crown the Testicle Queen? Is there a dance called the "Testicle Ball"? Would the Testicle Queen be the Belle of the Ball?


Ya'll drive safe and come back soon.

Can't answer your questions as I haven't been out to Elderon yet. I can plan to go next year and give you the full report. I think the one thing though that can answer your questions right away is the last line of the article....

ya...I know we small town cheeseheads come up with the silliest things to form a festival, testicles, pirates...ah's what keeps the breweries in business....
