Rocky Mountain Oysters

What it is: Bull testicles

Where it's served: Wyoming, Colorado, and Montana

Want a bite? Late summer is, apparently, the harvest season for bull testicles: You can get a freshly reaped and deep-fried pair (or quartet) at the annual Testicle Festival (or Testy Festy) in Clinton, Montana, typically held the first weekend of August. As in the rest of Montana, at the Testy Festy, only the strong survive: Besides the obligatory Rocky Mountain oyster eating contest, there's bullcrap bingo (involving a large bingo board where the recently fed cattle roam), a greased pig–wrestling competition, and multiple wet T-shirt contests. At a three-ring biker circus like this, the oysters themselves are almost an afterthought—an afterthought that tastes like chicken…with veins.
