The story of Wesley Warren Jr., a Las Vegas man who had surgery to correct his oversized scrotum, is more tragic than it is funny — but Twitter users haven’t been able to resist cracking a few jokes about the man’s plight.
On Monday, TLC aired a documentary about Warren’s struggle,The Man With the 132-Pound Scrotum, which looks at his day-to-day life with scrotal lymphedema, a condition that at one point caused his scrotum to grow three pounds per month. He has since had surgery to remove the mass.

That 132 pound scrotum guy seemed angry before corrective surgery. I was like c’mon dude, you’re getting a little testy!

Besides ’19 Kids and Counting’ and ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ the ‘Man With The 132lb Scrotum’ is my favorite TLC show about giant scrotums.

Sure, that 132-pound scrotum gets a TV show, but my “normal” scrotum is somehow “upsetting the neighbors.”
