Come have a ball with Jesus! (at a testical festival in Texas)

Come have a ball with Jesus… what the…

What?! I figured this had to be fake. But then I Googled it.

And I found…

JACKSONVILLE — The Texas Testicle Festival has two missions.

The first is to glorify God by reaching our community teaching and expanding the word of God.

The second is to support the greatest foster father of our country, Cal Farley.

This year’s Testicle Festival was a wonderful day in Jacksonville. SOURCE.

What is wrong with Texas?

Not everything is bigger down there.

    Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm………. apparently:

    “YEE HAW! During the 17th annual Texas Testicle Festival, held in March 2009, diners enjoyed calf fries (fried calf testicles), along with an assortment of other available foods. All proceeds benefit Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch.”

    Wow. I just am…

    huh?

    Ok- we city slickers (seein’ as how Jacksonville is a small town in East Texas not far from where my Grandmother lives in Tyler) are not so ball-crazy. Or maybe we are and that’s why those country folk think we are goin’ to hell in a handbasket.

That so rocks. Praise God that so many different and weird people can all belong to the same body.

I would imagine that this particular mans function is more, ummm, reproductive than most. :)

As a Texan I can tell you calf fries are usually best washed down with beer and classic or alternative country, however this affair looks decidedly more southern baptist. That means no beer or dancing. That’s a ball I would not attend

You know this reminds me of the lamb fry scene in the Chevy Chase “classic,” Funny Farm>/i>. “The secret is ya gotta cut ‘em off up real high.”

Hmmm. As a Texan, and as one who lives in East Texas (about an hour from Jacksonville) I don’t know what to say. I personally don’t see the appeal in calf fries. This appears to be hosted by a few of the Cowboy Churches in the Tyler area.

None the less, it is nice to see that the body of Christ can be as diverse as this.

The great state of Texas doesn’t have exclusivity regarding eating testicles. As Exhibit A, I present this scholarly documentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq4mqCDakVQ

True, not *everything* is bigger in Texas. Trust me, I can attest to that. ;)

But the overcompensation is bigger, to be sure.

Those outside of West Texas see this is as odd, but its just another Calf Fry for us. Some organizations have bake sales to raise money, but we fry animal testicles.

This makes sense. It is reaching out into the culture. People do this (what they do, I’m not sure of, but they do it). Why not talk about Jesus while doing it?
