Talking Where the heck is Olean, Missouri?

This is too funny


YouTube - Testicle Festival Olean, MO 2010

I have lived in Missouri for nearly 50 years and had never heard about this festival. I finally learned about the Olean Testicle Festival off some guy's shirt standing in line at Universal Studio's in Florida!! This video blogger didn't like the festival, but it appears to grow every year, so apparently many others do not share his critique. Here is an article from 2007 about the festival - Vox Magazine - No bones, just balls

Some of the older small town festivals have disappeared since I was a kid. My favorite was the annual Chadwick rattlesnake hunt. Now those remaining seem to be little more than fall arts and crafts festivals.

Anyone have a favorite?

I drove up to see my folks west of Jeff City on the day of the Testicle Festival. On the way home that evening I was listening to a classic rock station that was doing a live remote from the festival. The announcer at the station said, "We're going now to Nikki who's over at the Testicle Festival. Nikki, what's going on over there?"

Nikki replied, "Let me tell you, folks, I am having a ball at the Testicle Festival."

Well, of course, what else would you say?

I've seen those billboards for the Testicle Festival but have never been. Funny billboards though, they always make me laugh.

I've wanted to go to the old fashioned fiddle contest in Boonesboro but keep managing to miss it. Next year I hope....
