Testicle-Eating Fish Found In Passaic County Lake

A fish with an apparent appetite for testicles has been found in a pond in Passaic.

The Pacu, a cousin of the piranha that can mistake genitals for tree nuts, was caught Saturday by a fisherman in the city’s Third Ward park.

The fish has been blamed for the deaths of two New Guinea men, who reportedly died from blood loss after they were attacked by the fish.

The Pacu is a native of the Amazon in South America, and officials said they believe someone likely dumped it in the pond.

No wonder that is where they filmed the "Sopranos".

Did you hear about this, Joe Gorga, (a.k.a) Tarzan?

Well, what are these men doing? Taking their scrotums out of their suits/shorts and dangling them about making them look like these "tree nuts"? If the men in New Guinea were fishing in the nude - best to try using some cover that won't "float up" exposing their testicles. And,....? How the hell do you shut off the fricking VIDEOS?

I seriously doubt the story would be reported, or that the female "news" presenter would seem nearly so gleeful, if the fish reportedly had an appetite for women's nipples or for seeking dinner in women's vaginas. I doubt the fish has a double standard.

I first read it in the French press a month ago: someone had caught one in the Seine river in Paris! People are dumping their pet fish in lakes and rivers and this is not a good idea!

I thought they were going to say it was Snooki

my only question is, since a guy caught one.....what did he use for bait?
Fuh Q Mann September 26, 2013 at 10:05 PM
This is NUTZ, said the Pacu...

Which party did it belong to? Could have been either one.

Hmmmm... I say make use of these fish to exact a bit of justice to child predators.
joe blowski September 27, 2013 at 06:18 PM
ive mistaken them for tree nuts once- was embarrassing

A couple years ago I was watching a show, maybe Monster Fish", where there was a similar story being reported. The same thing happened to native fishermen I South America. They called this monster fish the "ball crusher". Kinda makes me glad I never went back into the water after seeing "JAWS"!
