    There is a dangerous new game that teenagers are playing. The game is called the “tapping” game and every parent should beware.

    A Minnesota teenager had to have his twin avocados removed after this dangerous new game, where was a victim of friends who took turns thumping the sacks beneath each other’s thingies.

    This tragedy has parents worried and scared. As reported by our Fox Affiliates at Kare11, a Minnesota teenager had to have his hangdowns removed after being punched in the groin by a classmate.

    The boy, David Gibbons, was changing classes in his high school in Crosby, Minnesota. As the 14-year-old child was innocently walking to class, he was attacked by another student who was playing this dangerous new ‘sack tapping’ game.

    Hours later, David Gibbons’ mother, Christy Gibbons, suspected something was awry.

    “One o’clock in the morning he woke me up and told me he was in excruciating pain,” Ms. Gibbons said.

    David was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Brainerd, Minn, where surgeons there were horrified and had to do an emergency procedure to remove his right testes. It had been traumatized by the hand of this frightful game.

    Any of your sons could become the victim of this game. David is not the only student to be victimized and has suffered the consequences of this dire game.

    Dr. Scott Wheeler, a urologist in Brainerd, Minnesota, is shocked by the game. “It’s just gotten way out of control,” said Dr. Wheeler, who also says he performs three to four surgeries a year on boys with ruptured testicles and other complications as a result of “sack tapping.”

    “All parents, you need to have this talk with your kids not to do it. It’s lost its humor. It’s not a game anymore. People get hurt,” Dr. Wheeler warned.
