Kangaroo Testicle Hoax
The organizers of the world testicle-cooking championship in Serbia were all prepared for the arrival of Nigel Bevan, Australia's leading kangaroo testicle cook. They even had a supply of kangaroo testicles on hand, ready for him to cook up into a delicious dish. But Bevan never showed up. It's hard to tell from the text of the article, but it seems to imply that Nigel Bevan, master kangaroo testicle chef, is real enough, but that some prankster was pretending to be him. However, a google search turns up no references to a testicle cook named Nigel Bevan (except for the references made in this article itself).

How ever - it's a legitimate bussiness (preparing and eating those things) so why wouldnt there be such cook...Some sort of testiclecooking Nigela Lawson grin

The story has now turned up in the media around Australia, they just call him an Auzzie hoaxer. Noone seems bothered enough to find out if this guy actually exists.

In this country a nigel is a bit of a dumb person, and a bevan is dumb, rough, and into cars. A perfect hoax name for said cuisine. I just wonder where they got all the testicles.
