Boudreaux and the Russian
Courtesy of Prentiss F.
A Russian and Boudreaux, a coonass wrestler from Thibodaux Louisiana, were set to square off for the Olympic gold medal.
Before the final match, Boudreaux's trainer came to him and said, "Now, don't forget all the research we've done on this Russian. He's never lost a match because of this "Pretzel" hold he has. Whatever you do, do not let him get you in that hold! If he does, you're finished", Boudreaux nodded in acknowledgment.
As the match started, Boudreaux the coonass and the Russian circled each other several times, looking for an opening. All of a sudden, the Russian lunged forward, grabbing Boudreaux and wrapping him up in the dreaded pretzel hold.
A sigh of disappointment arose from the crowd and the trainer buried his face in his hands, for he knew all was lost. He couldn't watch the inevitable happen.
Suddenly, there was a scream, then a cheer from the crowd and the trainer raised his eyes just in time to watch the Russian go flying up in the air. His back hit the mat with a thud and Boudreaux collapsed on top of him making the pin and winning the match.
The trainer was astounded. when he finally got his wrestler alone, he asked, Boudreaux, how did you ever get out of that hold? No one has ever done it before?!
Then Boudreaux answered "Well, I was ready to give up when he got me in that hold but at the last moment, I opened my eyes and saw this pair of testicles right in front of my face. I had nothing to lose, so with my last ounce of strength I stretched
out my neck and bit those babies just as hard as I could.
So the trainer exclaimed, "That's what finished him off!"
Not really. You'd be amazed how strong you get when you bite your own nuts!!!
