Sports Columnist’s 902-Word Essay On The Joy Of Seeing Guys Get Hit In The Balls

Guardian sports columnist Harry Pearson is quite the cad when it comes to ‘nads. I mean, look at the headline and lede of Pearson’s 902-word opus on the whimsical nature and the joy elicited by witnessing a nut shot:

Joy of a blow below the belt (someone else’s): There is nothing more guaranteed to elicit laughter from a man than seeing another man get banged in the testicles

Pearson’s central premise for why he has such a passion for crotch shot comedy: (via the Guardian):

Yes, there is nothing more guaranteed to elicit laughter from a man than seeing another man banged in the nuts. It doesn’t matter who the recipient is, or the force of the blow.

I don’t know, isn’t Pearson’s attitude some kind of violation of the man code? Should a guy really enjoy nut shots to such a degree? Where’s his compassion? His empathy for the suffering of a fellow member of his gender? A sympathetic squirm when witnessing another man’s suffering? On the other hand, while Barney’s movie had heart, “Football in the Groin” did in fact have a football in the groin. So there’s that too consider, too.

After thinking about it, I don’t know which way to go on this one. Sorry to leave you all dangling here, but I’m going to have to hit the sack and sleep on this one.
