Tom Arnold used to dip his balls into McDonald’s milkshakes. Yes, that Tom Arnold. The Roseanne actor tweeted out his dirty deed in response to a tweet from the host of the popular RISK! podcast, Kevin Allison.
Allison had re-released a classic episode of the podcast where comedian Seena Jon tells a story about being a production assistant on set with the Roseanne writer. The young stand-up was excited to meet Arnold, but when Jon witnessed him act like a diva on set, Jon got his revenge. Revenge might be a dish best served cold, but not when it’s dipping your balls in a comedy icon’s milkshake and that milkshake is too cold. The episode first streamed in 2011 and became an instant classic.
I suppose I could pay closer attention to the calendar when scheduling @RISKshow episodes. On the other hand, who wouldn’t give thanks for today’s episode wherein @seenajon dips his balls in Tom Arnold’s milkshake? A creamy, frosty T-day treat indeed! https://t.co/JGqQv7fXOF pic.twitter.com/Uoa584wiRx

When Allison tweeted about the release, he did not tag Arnold’s twitter handle, but Arnold still saw it. Thankfully, the sometimes-unstable star found it funny. Arnold replied to the tweet, with his own risky story. He admitted to also dipping his nether regions into the fast food while working at McDonald’s, noting that he probably deserved tasting some scrotum himself.
I used to do the same thing when I worked at McDonalds. #Karma

RISK! is a podcast that features people divulging stories they never thought they would tell in public. The podcast started as a live show back in 2009 and became a hit. Allison decided to turn the concept into a podcast. RISK! has become a behemoth with over 2 million downloads per month. Allison also published a book based on the podcast, RISK! True Stories People Never Thought They’d Dare to Share, which came out earlier this year. The book features stories from comedians like Aisha Tyler, Marc Maron, Michael Ian Black, and Paul F. Tompkins.
Arnold got his karma like many others through the podcast. RISK! is no stranger to damning celebrity stories. Earlier this year, they caused some controversy when Aubrey O’Day told a story that was seemingly about Donald Trump Jr.
