I had to laugh at the sad (?) news of an injury to a member of an Australian comedy team known as “Puppetry of the (male organ)“. The actual word used has been censored due to the family-friendly nature of this blog.
A member of the Puppetry of the ***** duo has suffered a testicle injury with a corkscrew during a performance.
David Friend is the creator of the naked comedy group and hurt himself at a show at the Adelaide Fringe Festival on Wednesday night.
Friend was doing an act known as ‘The Bulldog’ when he sat on a woman’s lap in the crowd.
She had been on a winery tour earlier that day and had a corkscrew in her pocket.
The City reported that Friend’s testicle ‘turned a deep shade of purple’ with doctors advising him to rest for a week.

I don’t see how that portion of anatomy lends itself to “puppetry”. In any event, it wasn’t only wine that got corked that night! Talk about a screwball injury . . .
