Daily Darwin – On Their Way to the Testicle Festival

Darwin hilariously reports that this tasty morsel (or genome) from 9News Colorado about a  “CO man accused of removing a transgender woman’s testicles” says it all.  As a matter of fact, Darwin thinks it might be way too much information.

Police say a man faces felony assault charges after he used an Army surgical kit to remove the testicles of a transgender woman.

Records say during that interview, Pennington told investigators he agreed to perform the medical procedure at the victim’s apartment in Denver.


Detectives say the surgical kit contained a scalpel, lidocaine, medical dressings, and other medical equipment.

Records state Pennington “used the scalpel and surgically disconnected and removed the victim’s 2 testicles and then sutured the opening back up.”  The victim’s wife was with her during what was described…as a 90-minute-long procedure.

Because “the testicles could not be re-attached due to time delay of a procedure to 911 call” we arrive at the second part of the story. The couple headed off to Montana’s Famous “Testicle Festival”.  Even though the Festival turned out not to be BYO testicles, there were still many festivities to enjoy.

Natural selection deems that some individuals serve as a warning to others. Who are we to disagree? The next generation, ever and anon, is descended from the survivors


Why Trump Ditched Washington Correspondents Dinner

From Fox News, “Trump says not going to White House Correspondents dinner“.

President Trump said Saturday that he will not attend the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, escalating his battle with the news media and raising questions about the future of the annual event.

“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year,” Trump tweeted. “Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!”

The comment was just the latest turn in Trump’s adversarial relationship with the news media, which essentially began at the start of his campaign in July 2015 and took another questionable turn Friday.

FakeNews – Will the @realDonaldTrump Now Do SNL?

That is a question.  Since the @realAlecBaldwin is filling in as the @fakeDonaldTrump in this @FakeNews newspaper story about the @realDonaldTrump, I’m not sure whether to turn the page, change the channel or start following the @realDonaldTrump twitter feed.

Boy Scouts Offer New TransGender Merit Badge

CNN Reports that, “Boy Scouts open membership to transgender boys“.  Coincidentally, the Boy Scouts began offering a new Merit Badge as part of this announcement.  The requirements to qualify for the new badge have not yet been fully disclosed.

The ‘Clip and Tuck-It’  Badge

The Boy Scouts of America says it will begin accepting members based on their gender identity, opening the door for transgender boys to join.

Under the new policy, which takes effect immediately, membership in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will be based on the gender indicated on an application.

Previously, the organization relied on an individual’s birth certificate to determine eligibility for its single-gender programs.
