What have I started? Just when I thought and hoped there was nothing more to be said about Neuticles, David Tufte of voluntaryXchange proves me wrong. It turns out that they don’t exist for purely aesthetic reasons. He explains how asymmetric information in the dog show world creates a financial incentive for advertising false virility. Neat!
Neuticles have taken the blogosphere from humor to medicine to biology to economics in just a few days. Who knew an artificial testicle could bear so much fruit?
