The Phone Call I Hope I Never Get

Pushing paper around a desk ain't seeming like such a bad job these days.
A Croatian man got a nasty surprise when he tried to get out of his deck chair and found his testicles had got stuck. . . . He was eventually freed after he called beach maintenance services on his mobile phone. . . .
(By way of one of my star spawn friends.)

Sounds like a Japanese game show.

I hate when that happens!

Otto Man said...

Ouch. On the bright side, this tragedy does help spread the word about the dangers of shrinkage.

Thrillhous said...

Anyone know if W's visiting Croatia during his summer break?

Otto Man said...

That wouldn't work, Thrillhous. Cheney made Bush store his testicles into a blind trust for the duration of his presidency.

The strutting around is Bush's way of pretending they're still there. But they're not.

You mean Condi?

Otto Man said...

No, no. Cheney has full control over the Presidential Nuts.

He keeps them in his desk, occasionally taking them out to spin them in his palm like Captain Queeg.

Ok, I'm officially squirming around in agony.

Enough!

Yossarian said...

My testicles shrunk when I read that story.

Mike said...

Which is good -- that way they won't get stuck at all.

I think Condi already has a pair of her own.

(No he didn't!)

What's the big deal here? It's not like anything got pierced or smooshed.

And he couldn't break a slat himself? I wouldn't have wanted to call anyone.

Thrillhous said...

Mrs. T, although I run the risk of being called a mysogynist (sp?), I think this is the kind of thing you have to be a guy to fully understand.

To put it in terms you would understand, reading something like this causes most guys to react the way Obi Wan Kenobi did when Alderan was blown up.

Cutting the chair in half seems a little extreme. Couldn't he just order a pina colada and soak his nards in it?

Mrs. T, we can discuss pain after the birth of Thrillhous Jr.

Reactions in these here parts seemed to be stronger than just slumping in a chair. More like Luke having his hand chopped off.

My books tell me I don't have to feel pain! They wouldn't lie....would they?

Based on the women-folk I've know'd who done birthed baby-childs, I done got one word for ya':

Epidural.
