AN AUSTRALIAN hoaxer left organisers of the world testicle-cooking championship hanging after claiming he was Australia's leading kangaroo testicle cook.
A man calling himself Nigel Bevan failed to turn up for the event after contacting organisers to boast of his credentials and order a supply of kangaroo testicles for the competition. Local villagers in Sumska Kuca in northern Serbia turned out in huge numbers to see what delights the Australian could come up with and a band was ready to strike up to welcome the mysterious Bevan.
But they were disappointed and organisers were out of pocket after buying the kangaroo testicles but with no one to cook them.
"We get cooks from all over Europe who come here to northern Serbia to take on Serbian chefs, but we have never had a cook from as far away as Australia, so when we heard that Nigel Bevan, Australia's top testicle chef, was on his way with a team of Australian chefs we were really excited," championship organiser Ljubomir Erovic said.
"The caller told us cooked kangaroo testicles were a popular delicacy in Australia, and gave us the details of where we could get kangaroo testicles from so we could have them ready when Mr Bevan and his team arrived.
Mr. Bevan disappointed his Serbian hosts.
I understand testicles are offal and as such are prohibited from export from Australia. They probably taste offal !!
