Genius. I grew up with my uncles and cousins dining on balls. I never went there. And, well, I'm probably still not going to. But a great read, nonetheless.

Love this. Love Onstad. Make this a regular feature.

I don't recognize--and can't find in any dictionary--the word "arimoces." Little help?

@Celery Man

arimoces (v): to sputter, and/or choke while talking. Usually after having ingested something unpleasant, like swampy testicles.

(It is actually a very strange typo. For those looking for the typo, please note that it has been changed back to the original word "grimaces" in the on-line version. It is still at large in print.)

The instructions in the Larousse, in full: "Plunge the animelles [ridiculous that you can't find them as an entry under "testicles"] into boiling water for about 2 minutes, cool under cold water, and immediately skin them. Soak them in cold water for about 10 hours to remove impurities, then drain and press between 2 plates".

Who knows what impurities you guys ingested!

I don't regularly eat meat, but I would have liked to have been at this, scrutting balls with you guys.

(I also thought the Sandwich Duel was really funny. That's what completely sold me on Onstad's magnificence. http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/cart…)

I expected fruitcake, as in 'you're nutty as a...' Something to try w/the thunderbird, perhaps. "What's the word? Thunderbird. Who's them nuts? Ung-u-luts. What's the price? Castratti slice."

Does anybody have a recipe for taste alike vegan testicles?

Hows about tea bagger stew?
