RIP Wesley "Big Ball" Warren
The sad news broke this week that two time Howard Stern Show guest - Wesley "Big Ball" Warren had passed away.
We met Wesley in 2011 when he brought us his tale of woe - his scrotum had swelled to such a huge size (for unknown reasons at the time) that they weighed over 100 pounds.
We of course had to see that for ourselves and weighed his balls live on the air.
But Wesley was more than just his big balls. He was a sweet, courteous guy every time we met him. He amazingly took his affliction in stride while desperately trying to get help.
His appearance on our show led to a TLC documentary "The Man With the 132 Pound Scrotum" which documented his condition, his struggles to find a cure, and the eventual surgery that removed the abnormally large growth.
"TLC is saddened to hear about the sudden loss of Wesley. He was a lovely man who bravely told his story, and we share our condolences with his family and friends."

Fortunately, we were able to share in Wesley's triumph when he finally had his growth removed and regained use of his normal genitalia. He came back on the show in 2013 - over a hundred pounds lighter - and talked about his surgery, the doctor who saved his life, and then - oddly enough - requested to play a game of Guess Who's the Jew, which we happily obliged.
RIP Wesley. We speak your name.
