In what may be their most ballsy move yet, cable television network TLC announced yesterday that they will air a one-hour special chronicling the life and times of a man with a scrotum the size of your entire body.
We’re not exaggerating, either. Forty-nine-year-old Las Vegas resident Wesley Warren suffers from a rare medical condition called “scrotal lymphedema,” which has caused his scrotum to grow to a whopping 132 pounds since 2008. And thus, TLC has dubbed his special “The Man With the 132-Pound Scrotum”.
The show will reportedly follow “Wes’s life as he deals with day-to-day challenges that are easy for most people…like walking, preparing meals and even going to the restroom.” Forgotten from the list is “putting on a hooded sweatshirt,” because he is clearly wearing it on the wrong half of his body in this photo.
(Just kidding. Wes wears a sweatshirt on his lower body so he can cover that pesky scrotum, and even though you’re staring at all 132 pounds of it, TLC has chosen to censor that ever-so-tiny portion at the bottom.)
The show will also detail Warren’s attempts to “find appropriate medical care and raise money for the surgery he desperately needs,” while most likely encouraging Twitter users to whip out their best jokes about “hangin around,” “getting sacked,” and “ballin'” when the special premieres on Monday, August 19.
According to reports, Warren’s 132-pound scrotum was removed by doctors earlier this year. Will you still watch?
