Pain humor is still some of the best comedy out there. There’s just something about laughing at other people’s pain that is genuinely hilarious. Whether it’s someone eating shit on pavement or someone falling short on their rope swing attempt, it will not fail to get a couple yucks. But nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is funnier than watching someone unexpectedly getting hit square in the nuts. And if you’re saying to yourself, “That’s not funny at all, it’s just immature”, excuse me sir? Get over yourself, you fucking loser. Watching people getting their balls slammed is one of the greatest internet past-times there is. Just watch “Kicked in the Nuts”, on YouTube, and I promise you’ll be ROLLING.
Onto this, diehard journalist, who literally put his sack on the line for a shot of the ceremonial first pitch yesterday at Fenway. This guy is the epitome of sports photojournalism. Sacrificing one of his balls, and perhaps the chance at birthing children, to get his shot. That’s fucking HEART right there. And now he’s an internet sensation over night. He ate that ball like he was a goddamn secret service agent taking a bullet. Team players get on base no matter what it takes, even if it means taking a pitch straight to the groin, so I’ll take this guy on my team any day of the week. Kudos!
Oh and if you were wondering what the picture he took looked like, here ya go.
