apparently, true 'nuff.

we'd have the annual event in vet school, at the time that volunteers from the bovine practitioners club went out to castrate local herds, called calf-fry. and yeppers, that's exactly what it was. bunch of rednecks and lil steer-bits, and **truckloads** of beer, the latter being responsible for the non-rednecks partaking in the former. i don't drink beer, so i was safe from accidental testicle consumption.

I grew up hearing them called Rocky Mountain Oysters, and no, I've never sampled them. Tongue, though, is another story. Hubby won't go near it, so I've never prepared it. It was a staple when I was growing up, though. Mom made it in the pressure cooker, then made a horseradish gravy with the liquid she cooked it in. Delicious.

I think it's safe to assume that the only way most people will eat them is:

1. Ignorance - not realizing they're eating them.
2. Drunk.

I had beef tongue with dinner last night at a Basque restaurant in Reno, NV. It was served with a spicy red sauce. It was pretty darn good. I don't think I would ever be able to cook it myself. When I eat it I just try to not visualize what I am eating.

Saw this joke and though about this post!

An American touring Spain stopped at a local restaurant following a day of

sightseeing. While sipping his sangria, he noticed a sizzling, scrumptious

looking platter being served at the next table. Not only did it look good,

the smell was wonderful. He asked the waiter, "What is that you just

served?" The waiter replied, " Ah senor, you have excellent taste! Those

are bulls testicles from the bull fight this morning. A delicacy!" The

American, though momentarily daunted, said, "What the ****, I'm on

vacation! Bring me an order!" The waiter replied, "I am so sorry senor.

There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight

each morning. If you come early tomorrow and place your order, we will be

sure to save you this delicacy!" The next morning, the American returned,

placed his order, and then that evening he was served the one and only

special delicacy of the day. After a few bites, and inspecting the

contents of his platter, he called to the waiter and said, "These are

delicious, but they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve

yesterday!" The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied, "Si senor.

Sometimes the bull wins."
