The Testicle Mascot



You’ve got to love the openness of the Brazilians.  This is their mascot of testicle cancer awareness.  And he is posing with kids!   He goes by the name of Mr. Balls per this website.   I think we would have a better name if he was a mascot here in the US.  I am going with “Lumpy” or “Curly”.    What do you guys think?

    Best laugh of the week. My entire office staff (mostly female) are rolling on the floor laughing their asses off. We know it is a serious subject but the picture is a hoot.

    As a 33 year survivor (not 33 year old survivor) of testicular cancer, I also appreciate the openness of the Brazilians in promoting awareness of this disease. I offered to talk to students in my city and only two schools took advantage. Oddly enough, it was middle schoolers who took it more seriously than those in high school. The program fell apart due to lack of interest.
