The Montana State Society’s Testicle Festival in Virginia Square was a rousing success this year.

Festival-goers consumed 110 pounds of bull and bison testicles, 84 liters of Crown Royal and 1,500 cans of beer this year, according to event organizer and Society president Jed Link. All three were records for the event, now in its eighth year.

Organizers estimate that nearly 600 people attended the Testicle Festival, which was held at the American Legion post at 3445 Washington Boulevard. Even though the event didn’t start until 6:00 on Saturday evening, Link said a line started to form at 4:30 p.m.

    Next year, in the spirit of gender equality: Come for the uterus-B-Q!

    • drax

      I had eggs for breakfast. Big deal.

  • NrNy2ArlVa

    I guess the picture says it all.

    • Good Grief

      I’m sure that woman is thrilled she was caught mid testicle..

      • sam

        I’ll be honest Joe Rogan, this isn’t the first time i’ve tasted testicles.

  • meh..

    hate I missed that.


  • Punny

    An event no man, woman orchid should miss. Because when it comes to calf fries, can you ever get eunuch?

    ARLnow headlines are becoming less SFW by the day.

    • JohnB2

      And since the words also appear in the URL, they are searchable in your browser history and are ripe for processing by corporate/government filters.

        Gotta stop all that testicle porn!

  • JimPB

    How did this particular type of consumption impact the waste treatment plant?

    • South Side Chris

      There’s a biosolid joke in there I know it.

  • drax

    That headline took balls.

  • DarkHeart

    Did WRC air any of the footage they took?

  • very cool headline *howls*

  • YumYum Come2Momma

    Did the beverages include tea? I wonder how many tea bags were consumed.

  • courthound

    Is that Remy in the background?

  • DarkHeart

    It should be noted that Qatar was an event sponsor.

    • DarkHeart

      For those in the know, castrating a bull is also called “cutting”.

      • CW

        Those with a basic knowledge of the English language would probably agree with you.

  • Mike

    I see they’re beer aficionados.

    • drax

      What do you expect from people eating testicles?

      • Mike

        Good point.

    • courthound

      Hey, PBR won a blue ribbon 119 years ago.

  • Please look into their eyes

    For those in the know, it really really hurt the baby cows. You’ve basically pinned them down and cut off a very sensitive body part for consumption by another animal. Good for u

    • Epicurean

      I love, love LOVE veal. Just sayin’.

      • don’t eat veal

        Veal eaters are evil.

        • Guy LeDouche

          since we are making general statements to characterize people, i feel that people who don’t eat veal are evil.

          i love the taste of a sweet baby cow. so tender and delicious. if it weren’t meant to be eaten it wouldn’t be so delicious. and if that cow were a carnivore, it would eat you, and your baby for that matter, and wouldn’t think twice.

          • true

            if god didn’t want us to eat animals why did he make them out of meat?

        • cruel eaters

          this event is disgusting and should be sponsored, held or attended.

          eating veal is another cruelty inflicted upon baby animals by insensitve, selfish eaters. these babiels are taken from their moms, chained up and not allowed to move for their entire short, deprived lives.
          shame on all of you who don’t know better and for those of you who do and don’t care…i only wish for karma to come your way.

          • cruel eaters

            sorry should have said should “NOT” be sponsored, held or attended.

    • please look a bit lower?

      cows have testicles too? I thought it was just the bulls

      • please read the post again

        Nobody said cows have testicles.

        • reading again

          “it really really hurt the baby cows”

  • DarkHeart

    Temple Grandin is on this site?

  • KARLington

    Really, this should be in BALLston.

  • Gross

    Since when is it so vogue for douchey guys to show up at everything with towels on their shoulders? I saw someone standing on the sidewalk talking to his bros on his cell phone with such a towel the other day. Is he waiting for a boxing match to break out or just hoping to get “discovered” to become a waiter?

    • ArlingtonWay

      Hadn’t noticed that. I have noted lots of people wearing jaunty fedora style hats. Looks horrible. Unsure how it started.

    • Penrosy

      I’m pretty sure those are T-shirts. Although I want there to be a joke about juiciness of the testicles, I don’t think it’s warranted.

    • ClarendonDweller

      Those are t-shirts that were given out at the event.

  • Cyrus

    Those ladies do NOT have to wait in line for testicles. Just sayin’

  • chris

    • ArlingtonNative
