Pretzel Hold Escape

A Russian 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 Russian.
He's never lost a match because of this 'pretzel' hold he has.
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 Russian circled each other
several times, looking for an opening. All of a sudden, the Russian
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 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 Russian 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 did you ever get out of that hold? No one has ever done it

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.'

'So,' the trainer exclaimed, 'That's what finished him off!'

'Not really.' said the Newfie 'You'd be amazed how strongly you react
when you bite your own balls.'
