Another teenager has lost his testicle to "sack tapping". What has this world come to? I had never heard of this sport but it seems all the rage in Minnesota. David Gibbons, 14, was changing classes in his high school when he was attacked by another teenage who punched his scrotum. One urologist in the article claims to have to amputate around 3 to 4 testicles a year due to this game. They are pushing for a ban on this habit because as the doctor states, "It's lost its humor. It's not a game anymore. People get hurt." I think they need to make some billboards saying such things as:
- "Got a sac?"
- "Don't hurt'em - let'em keep their scrotum."
- "There are so many other ways to have a ball....and keep one, too."
- "Don't be a nut and lose your nuts."
- "Sac tapping ends up in testicle whacking!"
Anyone else have any ideas?
Editor's Note - After writing this I was informed that my teenage sons play a similar game at school called "bag tagging". I am so out of the loop.
