Dissent of the testis — Williams and Dharmaraj 335 (7633): 1287 — bmj.com


Further proof that the British tend to hilarious insanity: Pediatric endocrinologists apparently used specific off-the-shelf boxed chocolates as a quick reference for measuring testicular volume. When the chocolatiers changed the form factor, some pediatricians responded with an apparently huffy (yet tongue-in-cheek) medical journal article.

This is a major setback for paediatric endocrinology, and the manufacturer’s decision to change the sweets’ morphology without consulting the medical profession is a further kick in the Teasers. Despite conveying our concerns to the manufacturer, we have received no clear explanation, nor any reassurance that this issue is being taken seriously.
