1. Yes.
I found them unremarkable, except for what they are.

8. Yeah, but the Testy Fest
is also an excuse to drink beer and listen to live music.

6. Yes, but I like sheep balls better
They are smaller and, well, tenderer. Basque Sheepmen in my area have elevated the skill of cooking, then braising, them to a fine art.

7. When I was in Madrid years ago, one restaurant by the Corrida served...
Dos Huevos del Toro, but only a few orders a day, since there were, I believe, 8 bullfights a day.

I was finally able to order some, but when they came out they were puny things.

"Ah," apologized the waiter, "the bull, he does not always lose."

11. Ummm no.
Even in Frisco I would not eat em in a box
I would not eat them with a fox
I would not eat them here or there.
I would not eat them *anywhere.




*exceptions apply in extremely dire circumstances. :-)

12. Many times as a kid
My parents used to have an annual fry with their fellow teachers. Been a couple decades since I've eaten them.

13. Yes, at the Buckhorn Exchange, the oldest restaurant in Denver
With a shot of Chinaco Anejo tequila and a Fat Tire beer.
Perfect way to spend a Friday afternoon happy hour.
