Hitler had one ball: Official

Other not in Albert Hall, however

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

It's official: Hitler really did have only one ball, confirming the suspicions of Brits who during WWII musically suggested* the Führer was a 'nad short of a full lunchbox.

That's according to the Sun, which says the fact was confirmed by German army medic Johan Jambor who saw an injured Hitler during the 1916 Battle of the Somme, minus one testicle.

Jambor - who died in 1985 - recounted the facts to priest Franciszek Pawlar in the 1960s, who in turn wrote the story down. Jambor's chum Blassius Hanczuch has now confirmed the account. He explained: “In 1916 they had their hardest fight in the Battle of the Somme. For several hours, Johan and his friends picked up injured soldiers. He remembers Hitler.

“They called him the ‘Screamer’. He was very noisy. Hitler was screaming ‘help, help’. His abdomen and legs were all in blood. Hitler was injured in the abdomen and lost one testicle. His first question to the doctor was: ‘Will I be able to have children?’.”

According to the Sun, records show Hitler did cop a groin injury on the Somme, and suggests a Soviet autopsy may have confirmed his monorchic state, or monotesticularity, or seminadity. ®

*Specifically, the popular ditty to the tune of Colonel Bogey runs: "Hitler has only got one ball, the other is in the Albert Hall. His mother, the dirty bugger, cut it off when he was small."

The Telegraph says this is an adaptation of the original, which claimed: "Göring has only got one ball, Hitler's [are] so very small, Himmler's so very similar, and Goebbels has no balls at all."
