Morning y’all
Today’s DJK comes to us courtesy of wit-nit
. . . . . Didja Know?
Remember as kids getting together with friends on a hot summer day and heading to the nearest
watering hole to take a dip? Well, cherish those memories because after today you probably won’t
want to relive that part of your childhood anytime soon

A Michigan woman and her husband were out on Lake St. Clair when she reeled in a 14’ Pacu, or as
they’re affectionately referred to - “the ball cutter”

A South American relative of the Piranha, the omnivorous fish have square, human-like teeth and primarily
eat nuts, fruit and small fish; however, according to an expert, while the Pacu’s "mouth is not so big …
human testicles are just a natural target. It's not normal to get your testicles bitten off, of course, but it
can happen."


The Dept. of Natural Resources believes the fish was probably someone's pet and either got too big or too
aggressive for its aquarium, so its owner dumped it into the lake.

I guess.. somebody's Pacu got a little Testi... I'll have to remember that the next time I go skinny dipping in Lake Michigan..

It's a tropical fish so it won't survive lake Michigan's icy winters.

Suggestion: Invite all the DC politicians over for a swim party, then when they come out of the lake they could really admit they have no balz...

But, the testes may not survive either...
