[Intro Music: Holy Fucking Science!]

Matthew Gaydos: Alright, so my super unsexy...

Nick Jenkins: Sex topic?

MG: Sex topic.

NJ: Okay.

MG: Starts off with a quiz.

NJ: Oh!

MG: For the two of you. Which animal has the largest testicles in relation to its body weight in the world?

NJ: Let me go first because you might know it, so, let me get a chance...

Dr. Lindsey Doe: Is this multiple choice?

MG: Nope! 'Cause I didn't think that far ahead.

NJ: Let me have the chance to...

MG: So, any animal in the world, go! [Indicates NJ]

NJ: I'm gonna go with a rat.

MG: Okay.

LD: Oh yeah! I mean, I was just thinking primate.

MG: You're both very wrong.

LD: Yay! [Applaudes]

MG: The answer, and I might pronounce this first word incorrectly, is a Tuberous Bushcricket.

LD: Hm!

MG: Yeah. A little bitty cricket.

LD: I didn't even know that insects had testicles.

NJ: I didn't either! [Laughs]

MG: Yeah, Holy Fucking Science, right?

LD + NJ: Yeah!

LD: Holy Fucking Science!

NJ: Already off to a good start.

MG: Uh, this is a thing that scientists discovered in 2010, they found out that the testicles of the Tuberous Bushcricket make up 14% of its body weight.

NJ: That's too much percent.

MG: It's a lot of percent.

LD: Wait, wait, wait, let's do that for you gentlemen.

MG: That's math.

LD: Yeah, we can do math.

NJ: [Groans]

LD: So fourteen is a little more than a half of a quarter.

MG: That's the easy, no that's less than a quarter?! That's real bad math Lindsey.

NJ: Yeah...

LD: No, a quarter is twenty-five, half of twenty-five is twelve and a half.

MG: I was gonna say, there's definitely easier way to do this. So 14%...

NJ: Okay, so let's...

MG: I weigh 180. Go!

LD: I was...

NJ: So, about 20lbs, roughly, somewhere, 20-25lbs.

MG: I'm gonna believe you.

NJ: I'm not gonna talk about this because I'm very, very protective of my weight.

LD: I'm just gonna say...

MG: Does 25 sound about right to you guys?

LD: ...that it's like...

MG: Alright, so 20lbs essentially?! If I had 20lbs of testicles, I'd be sitting on right now.

NJ: No...

MG: Yeah!

NJ: No, I don't wanna.

MG: They put it in terms that, the article I read and learned about this, in terms that didn't really help me understand too well, because they said a human with these proportions, it would be like each testicle being the weight of five bags of sugar.

NJ: Well, what the...

LD: That's a head.

NJ: What the fuck is that?! What?!

MG: Oh yeah, five bags of sugar, I know how much that is.

LD: It's two heads! You have two head testicles.

MG: Mmm. But more, bigger I think?

LD: What is the kid...

MG: My head is not 14% of my body weight, I don't think?

LD:, uh, the movie? The kid?

MG: Jerry Maguire?

LD: Yeah.

MG: Says the human head only weighs 8lbs.

LD: Okay, so it's three.

NJ: Wow.

MG: Three human heads danging between my legs.

NJ: Can they talk?

MG + LD: [Laughs]

MG: I hope not!

LD: We are the faces of your testicle heads! One, two, three.

NJ: Don't do fan art!

MG: I was gonna ask for the opposite of that!

LD: [Laughs, claps] I like fan art!

MG: Holy Fucking Science Fanart.

LD: Everybody pose.

[Saxophone Music]

[Everyone is laughing]

MG: Please put our faces on someone's testicles.

NJ: Anyone. Anyone will do.

MG: Your choice.
