Ok, things are already bad in Illinois with a rise in the murder rates and thugs allegedly jumping out of stretch limos to assault people. Now, a swim in the state could result in your losing more than the afternoon heat. Officials at the Illinois Department of Natural Resources confirm that they have caught pacu fish in Lake Lou Yaeger in Litchfield, Illinois. The pacu has an unsettling reputation in in Papua New Guinea for eating testicles — giving it the local name as the “ball cutter.”
The Pacu have human-like teeth and appear to love to swim with humans. With a straight face, officials insists that the fish are more known for eating vegetables and nuts. There could be something lost in translations for the later category is uncomfortably broad for the pacu diet.
Before Litchfield becomes known as the Land of the Castrato, they may want to take firm measures to rid the lake of pacu. The idea of testicle-eating fish makes the whole post-Jaws phobias seem trivial in comparison. In the meantime, most men are likely to be doing the backstroke in Lake Yaeger.
