Now There’s A Man Who Knows When He’s Got Something Good In His Mouth

The Inquirer’s David Aldridge brings us perhaps the most WTF story we’ve read in quite some time.  It’s the tale of New York Giants linemen Gary Ruegamer who "castrated lambs – with his, um, teeth."

Lamb fries!

Aldridge explains further:

Ruegamer, speaking with the East Valley (Arizona) Tribune, said he was
"hesitant" to geld the animals, and only did so at the request of a
friend, who owned a ranch in Nevada, where he grew up. The castration
technique is a Basque tradition, and the rancher was a Basque.

"But it is what it is," Ruegamer was quoted as saying. "She [the
rancher] needed help. There was beer. Good times. It was worth it. . .
. You pull them out with your teeth, spit them in a bucket, next one.
There was other work that had to get done, so we had to hurry with that
and move on to the next thing. It’s just a little lamb. It’s not a big
animal. I have pictures. The blood on your mustache is the worst part."

What’s for lunch!
