Warning, this post has been rated pg-13

Every time we drive past a certain veterinary clinic on 2000 West in Clinton, unfailingly the drama queen or Fox asks "Is it testicle festival time yet?"

No, they aren't referencing a special male fertility holiday that only we celebrate. They are asking if it's time for the vet's bi-annual neutering sale, which they advertise on their marquee as "testicle festival 200_". It is without a doubt THE most creative advertising I have ever seen. We don't even have a dog, but every time I see that sign I want to go pick one up just so that I can pay some monstrous fee to have its manhood taken away. I really need to find a good reason (one that doesn't involve animal mutilation) to go inside that office. I bet the coolest people work there.

The kids have even made up a a festival jingle. It's simple but catchy. Test-i-cal fest-i-val, it's time for test-i-cal fest-i-val. I wanna go to the test-i-cal fest-i-val....repeat over, and over, and over. Makes us laugh every time. Fortunately, I don't think they really know what they are singing about.

I can't wait to see what the vet comes up with for spaying season.


  1. You always crack me up. I totally see that sign and it makes me cringe for all men (and male dogs) everywhere! Thanks for the laugh!

  2. That sign changed my life...no more kids for me! YIPPEE!
