A Ukrainian and a Newfoundland wrestler were set to
square off for the Olympic Gold medal. Before the
final match, the Newfie wrestler's trainer came to him
and said, "Now, don't forget all the research we've
done on this Ukie. He's never lost a match, because of
this pretzel hold he has. So, whatever you do, do not
let him get you in that hold!! If he does, you're finished !!"
The Newfie nodded in acknowledgment........
As the match started, the Newfie and the Ukrainian
circled each other several times, looking for an opening.
All of a sudden, the Ukie lunged forward,.........
grabbing the Newfie 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 bare to 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 Ukrainian go flying up in the air.
His back hit the mat with a thud and the Newfoundlander
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:
"How the hell did you ever get out of that hold?? No
one has ever done it before!!...." The wrestler 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 !!"
The trainer exclaimed:
"So, THAT'S what finished him off !!...."
"Not really"............. replied the Newfie.......
"You'd be amazed how strong you get, when you bite your own nuts !!"...
