As A Male, I Have Mixed Feelings About This

If you've been vexed by the age old problems of carrying loose change and needing a unique conversation starter, may I suggest a quick stop at the Scrotum Gift Shop. Here's what they say about their "pouches":

Kangaroo scrotum pouches are made from the scrotum of male kangaroo, and it's said to be very lucky; all those in possession of one is assured of a long life, happiness and healthy children.

I suppose the luck, happiness, etc. only applies if you're not a kangaroo.

Kind of a weird story but I was at a blogger's house once (Eric, of Straight White Guy) and had quite a lot to drink, when he came over to me, told me to close my eyes, hold out my hand, and then guess what it was he was putting in my hand.

I knew, instinctively, that it was a large, hairy, leathery scrotum...I think once belonging to a bison, but I could be mistaken, and I only knew what it was because of a long forgotten blogpost he had written about receiving the testes as a [really, quite bizarre] gift from Elisson.

Quite frankly, I am impressed it sprang to my mind so quickly. Always fun hanging out with those peeps.

Erica's thought was mine as well. I've seen Eric's bull scrotum and my boys talk of it often.

That site is just... kind of disturbing. It makes me wonder things like... are we going to have Kangaroos on the endangered species list because hunters are killing them for their scrotum sacks? Will scrotum bags become such a hot commodity, in particular amongst the golfers, that we will fear for the loss of kangaroos on this planet?
