Sonny and Cher
Captain and Tenille
Simon and Garfunkel
Regis and Kathy Lee


Sometimes great duos must come to an end. Such is the case with RichFscott's nuts.

Our friend Rich has had a rough 4 days. He's doing well now. Rich had an incident occur this past week that landed him in the ER on Sunday. The result was a surgical procedure, and the removal of one nut.

Thus the great duo of Rich's left and right nut is no longer. The left nut decided to depart the comfortable confines of Rich's yambag for a medical waste container, leaving his right nut alone.

Please send Karma to Rich's right nut for a long, prosperous and fruitful life.

I stumped. I'm trying to remember what rich said he would give his left nut for.

Get well soon.

Mercy! Major well-wishes to RFS!

I'm sure Trent can come up with a good recipe for serving the nut.

Good thing is you're only half nuts, now.

If I didn't laugh, I'd have to cry.

"So, doc, then just some antibiotics and lots of cranberry juice, then?"

"No, how about emergency surgery and we take your Martian Moon Ball. How about that?"

"Well, how about no?"

"OK, you're about 24 hours from going into septic shock and you could like die and stuff."

"Oh. My one nut has the strength of three average nuts, right?

"Whatever you say, Demerol Boy."

"Well then, gets to cuttin'"

I do feel more aerodynamic now. Of course, that could just be because I'm hopped the fuck up on Percocet.

PSA: The window to recover a nut is four hours. Hours, not days. Hours.
Also, they might ask if you want to look at your nut. Gentlemen, I understand morbid curiosity as much as the next mono-nut wonder. But, don't look. Trust me on this.

Anyway, thanks for the nut karma.

do not have enough time to formulate full-blown sarcastic response, but imagine the term "full-blown" to be rather humorous here. also thinking you will be taking the physical therapy portion of your recovery into your own hands... er... hand....

including pic of han solo. get it? solo?

There's a great story yet to be told. I'm guessing it involves a pencil in the trouser pocket.

None of the above, my man. None of the above.

Some people like to gamble,
But you, you always lose.
Some people like to rock 'n' roll,
You're always singin' the blues
You gotta nasty disposition,
No one really knows the reason why,
You gotta bad, bad reputation,
Gonna hang your head down and cry...

You got bad, bad luck
Bad, bad luck
You got bad, bad luck
Bad, bad luck

Torsion?

Dude, that hurts.

You waited 4 days?

FOUR DAYS?

With that pain?

WOW!

Fool.

That's why I figure if I can deal with that kind of pain, I'm not mortal and don't even need dos balls.


They all complimented my high pain threshold right before they started snipping. Upon further review, it was more like 6 days. And my white count was over 28K.

Fool doesn't even begin to cover it.

Wait, this was caused by the clap?

Did you take anesthesia for the surgery after days of that kind of pain? That is like giving up at mile 25 of a marathon.

But the 28k is impressive. That means you had torsion AND a ball infection.

Sweet work there. You need to run for president.

Glad you're okay.

However, having 7 perform the surgery via the Internet may not have been your best idea, paucity of Iowa nut doctors notwithstanding.

Wait, what? No, man, I don't have no diseases. I'm clean as whistle. They think I probably started to get all twisted after I moved into my new place last Sunday. Then it kinda hurt, then I ignored and by Saturday I was pretty much crippled.

I'll tell you more than you ever wanted to know.

I did make one concession. General or spinal? General, make it a double.

Even the part about the slighty effeminate ultrasound guy swung the screen so I could see it and said, "This is your left one...it's very, mmmmm, enlarged"

Check please.

Rest in peace, Rich's Left Nut.

LONG LIVE THE RIGHT NUT!!!

From a personal perspective, I'd like thank Rich for making this physical sacrifice. This *bit* is gonna be great on line fodder for years to come. Thanks RuFuS.

Feel better. Enjoy the vitamin P.

So, will this make you lopsided while running? Will you have to build up extra strength in the right leg to carry the extra, uneven weight?

I've a friend whose husband raises a few head of beef cattle, and when its time to clip the testicles of randy young bulls and turn them into steers, their dogs, and their neighbors' dogs, go nuts, running around in mad circles in anticipation of having the meaty rich waste of agribusiness tossed to them.

I hope no dogs were fed your ball, Rich.
