    TLC has some pretty big balls putting this on the air.
    The cable network has just announced a special titled The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum. Yes, this is happening. Yes, there are photos. We put them semi-discretely below the text, but beware: Once you see a man with a 132-pound scrotum, you cannot unsee him.
    The special chronicles the challenges of Wesley Warren Jr., a 49-year-old Las Vegas resident who is living with a rare medical condition called “scrotal lymphedema.†The show will follow “Wes’s life as he deals with day-to-day challenges that are easy for most people. Due to the large size of his scrotum, Wes has difficulty with simple tasks like walking, preparing meals and even going to the restroom.†In the show and in public, Warren wears a hoodie to keep it his scrotum covered up.
    More from the channel: “According to Wes, it all began one night in 2008 when he awoke to sharp shooting pains. Afterward, the tissue around his testicles began to swell and grew bigger ever since. It’s estimated that they were growing at an alarming rate of at least 3 lbs per month. The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum, which highlights the difficulties of living with this bizarre situation, also reveals Wes’s many attempts to find appropriate medical care and raise money for the surgery he desperately needs.â€


    Notes a professor of urology, Dr. Joel Gelman: “The main specimen, after surgery, was 132 lbs, but we can’t accurately predict its total weight. With an additional specimen, tissue and cell fluid not taken into overall consideration, the starting weight could have been over 160 lbs.â€
    The one-hour special airs Monday, Aug. 19. So what do you think? Was TLC savvy to package this as a special? Or should the executive who ordered it get sacked?

    Where's Howard's cut? He created this guy. Along with everything else he can attach his name to.

    That fucker held off getting his nuts lopped off for free (some doctors offered to help the guy, and he refused) to make some dough off of them and to get some more attention. I for one, would've gone for the charitable snip than holding out for a few bucks and being a sideshow freak. But Gary should be proud the guy with the 132 lb. bean bag is "one of their guys."
