Unfortunately Bonds drinking Elk Semen isn't true

I'm going to post the entire URL, just because it's funny:

Yet contrary to Anderson's public reticence, Leftwich claims during their time as cellmates the chemically enhanced trainer shared one shocking anecdote after another about Bonds and BALCO. Among the revelations, according to Leftwich:
  • Desperate to combat the testicular shrinkage that can occur with steroids use, Bonds injected human growth hormone directly into his genitals during the 2002 playoffs -- with disastrous results for both him and the Giants.
  • In early 2003, owing to the performance-enhancing drugs coursing through his body, Bonds suddenly began lactating, forcing doctors to excise his mammary glands.
  • Wary of taking steroids since the BALCO flap broke, Bonds, intent on maintaining his edge, now supplements his diet with "Barry's brew," a homemade high-energy drink made of elk semen that has yielded its own troubling side effects.

And it's fake:

Fun with anagrams: It took me half way through the article ["Steroids Confidential"] until I decided to check on the validity of the authors. Sad that most people won't even notice Nic Foit and Ira Tes are "Fiction" and "Satire." So, how much does Elk splooge really cost?

We got linked by Fark! Now I wish I had written some commentary or something. All these people reading this post and all I did was provide some links. Gaslamp Ball blows it again!
