(H/T Scissorhead Dennis Cole)
Guys, the Dad jokes are catching! Scissorhead Dennis Cole has joined the Dark Side!
There is an old, quite exclusive club here in Tucons: https://mountainoysterclub.com
And yes, they’re on the menu…

Aw, man, members only. Get my hopes up, shoot them down.
It takes some balls to eat that. (Gag!)
They’re considered a delicacy in some environs, most notably during the spring roundups, when the young rams going to market get castrated, and, well, so many shepherds hated seeing any parts going to waste, they began frying them in hot oil, in cast-iron pans over open fires. It’s an acquired taste, for sure, and I don’t care for them as much as I do properly-prepared Turkey Nuts, which are readily available in my neck of the woods, as hundreds of thousands of turkeys are raised around here.
Thanks for the info Dennis…I just don’t get the need or the desire, unless you’re starving.
I did find out what they were back in the 60’s…a friend’s dad trained horses for the Reynolds family (forget which state). My friend went to help at the workers’ camp & was dared to try them, without telling her what they were. Needless to say, not a happy camper.
Looking it up…apparently up here in Canada they’re called ‘prairie oysters’.
Limited joke factor, even for dad (or granddad) jokes, most people don’t even know what Rocky Mountain Oysters are. Take wild guesses at it. Damned funny.
First smile of the morning as I watch the orange sphincter on CNN (I was hurling invective at that veruul as I read the news, MPS being one of my regular stops). I’ve had the opportunity to consume this, ahem, delicacy, but I’ve passed on the boys every time. Just can’t (sort of) teabag myself. I understand it’s just animal protein, but still …
Visited Uncle Web (pronounced Wayub) in Alabama years ago. He had a few piglets to castrate. A neighbor was there to help. Quick and efficient, though not pleasant for the piglet.
The dog found those little oysters quite delicious.
I can only see the appeal where the cojones form some sort of reward for winning a private duel. Then the eating of those prizes would be one way that the victor could ensure that the items in question can never again in some way be reattached.
It is to be assumed that I come from a rather primitive and violent stock.
