CASTRATION!

When my roommate Katie picked up our dog from getting neutered last week, the vet asked, "Would you like to keep or see his testicles?"

What if she had kept them? Would she keep them in the fridge? In the common room for everyone to enjoy? As a paperweight on her desk?

This episode puts a whole new spin on the "When in Taiwan, do as the Taiwanese do" philosophy.

That's just creepy, boingboing had a story earlier in the week about the publishing of the biography of China's last eunuch. He kept his testicles so he could be buried a complete man (till his sisters threw them out!).

do you think this article is meant to make us laugh or shake our heads in pity? that is always the conflict when reading about tragic absurdities from other cultures, especially when they occur at a different point in history.
