(Pictured above is Impgrin, a mainstay of BME/hard’s We’ve Got Big Balls! gallery, with what he says is his largest scrotal air inflation yet — by his measurements, 20 inches around and 10 inches long.)
Every once in a while, a feat is performed that is so heroic, so incredible, so daring, in such spectacular fashion, that it must be recognized. Alas, we have no keys to the city to give away, and a cash prize is so impersonal, so it is with this in mind that we present the BME Big Balls Award! The inaugural recipient is Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III, the hero pilot of US Airways Flight 1549, which took off from LaGuardia airport in New York this afternoon and which Sullenberger successfully ditched in the Hudson River minutes later. After one of the aircraft’s engines blew after sucking in a flock of geese, Sullenberger executed a “planned crash” into the river, saving the lives of the 155 people onboard the flight, plus countless others had the plane crashed into the mainland. You, Sir, have some big balls.
