In fact, I think I got the biggest email response EVER when I wrote about my hand-to-mandible battle with a potato bug living under our fridge.
I’m NOT a fan of the insect kingdom.
So gawd save me from the tuberous bush-cricket.
This little bugger just happens to own the world’s biggest testicles.
The Most Colossal Set of Balls on Planet Earth.
Well, relatively speaking.
Its stones are a startling 14% of its body mass.
If Justin Bieber’s crown jewels were of similar relative size, it’d be like he was dragging around a pair of basketballs.
As they say here on California’s central coast, gadzooks!
That’d be a real nuisance if you’re a trucker, or a ballet dancer, or an Olympic ice-skater.
But it’s a very good thing if you own your own business.
You know I’m talking metaphorically, right?
I’m talking about attitude.
Dan Kennedy calls it the “brass balls” mind-set. By that he means you’ve gotta possess courage, confidence, audacity, chutzpah…
You get the idea.
Of course, bush-crickets probably don’t have that mind-set, no matter how oversized their yarbles.
But one creature that irrefutably DOES exhibit a testicular attitude is a rhinoceros.
Rhinos are the most confident and courageous animals in the jungle.
Just check it out…
And wouldn’t you rather be a rhino than a bush-cricket?
