How Heavy is One Right Whale Testicle?

Depends what your Unit of Measurement is.

It could be:

147  Newborn Babies
5.5  Tom Cruises
10.0  Jennifer Anistons. So Tom Cruise is 1.9  Jennifer Anistons.

It’s even heavier than a whole polar bear! (1.15  Male Polar Bears).

And you would need a whole lot of crap (793,831  Average Bowel Movements),

Interesting Facts About Right Whales

Each male produces massive amounts of sperm in an attempt to dilute sperm already present in the female. To do this, the whales need the appropriate plumbing, which explains why one southern right whale testicle weighs in at over 500 kg (1,100 lbs), making the right whale the animal with the biggest testicles. At 1% of the whale’s total body weight, this size is very large even taking into account the size of the whale. Right whales can grow up to 18 m (60 feet) long and weigh up to 100 tons.

They are called “right whales” because whalers thought the whales were the “right” ones to hunt, as they float when killed and often swim within sight of the shore.

      I found myself imagining how big Husband’s balls would be if they were 1% of his body weight. The answer – over a kilo. Fuck. Not near me!

      Perhaps that explains the hung-low pants look – making room for the giant balls…
