I’m talking about balls across the blogosphere today — here at More Cowbell and over at Writers In The Storm. Of course over there, we’re being all dignified and talking about work-life balance.
Here? We’re just having our normal giggly Monday. 🙂
If you’re short on time, here is a quick video of a uniquely talented man who plays piano with his balls.
However, if you have a few moments for even more fun, we’re going to play a game of our own. I promise you’ll enjoy it…
Those who are new here might not remember The Pants Game. This is where y’all substituted “Pants” (or some derivative) into dialogue from your favorite movie for maximum hilarity.
Samples from that posts’ comments:
From Indiana Jones via Julie Glover:
Indiana: “Give me the pants”
Satipo: “..Throw me idol, I’ll throw you the pants!”
Indiana: [throws the idol] Give me the pants!”
Satipo: “Adiós, señor.”
From The Princess Bride via Pauline Baird Jones:
Fezzik: You never said anything about pants-ing anyone.
Vizzini: I’ve hired you to help me start a war. It’s an prestigious line of work, with a long and glorious tradition.
Fezzik: I just don’t think it’s right, pants-ing an innocent girl.
From Lord of the Rings via Tameri Etherton:
Aragorn: If by my life or death I can protect you, I will. You have my pants…
Legolas: And you have my panties.
Gimli: And *my* axe.
Boromir: You carry the trousers of us all, little one. If this is indeed the will of the Council, then Gondor will see it pantsed.
Oh mama, the posse here is good!
Today, we’re playing the same game, but with “Balls.” Give me a movie or TV title or dialogue snippet with the creative use of BALLS.
[Make me proud, people…make me proud.]
Here’s a classic “Casablanca” sample to get ball rolling (IYKWIM):
‘Excuse me, gentlemen, your business is balls. Mine is running a saloon.’
‘What in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca?’ ‘My health. I came for the balls.’
What is your favorite movie or TV show? And what do they have to offer up for The Balls Game? Enquiring minds always want to know these things here at More Cowbell!
Speaking of balls….
Yes, and why ARE there so many songs that focus on balls? I’m just sayin…
“Nobody puts Baby’s balls in the corner”. 🙂 Need I disclose the movie? 🙂
Nope! I got it…same movie where they sing, “She’s Like the Balls.”
This is exactly what my mind needed today. I’ve gone from rather surly to snickering in five-point-three seconds. Yay, balls! And now from one of my favorite movies, “Almost Famous:”
“Yes, it’s balls. It’s balls of drugs and promiscuous sex. Honey, they’re on balls.”
Then my work here is done!! NICE QUOTE. 🙂
Baby Boom with Diane Keaton: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4PDf4tir4E Very funny how she ends up balancing work and a new baby she didn’t expect.
I’ve never seen that movie, Sharla. I’ve always meant to. Now that I’m a late-life mom, I expect I’ll laugh myself silly over it. 🙂
If I didn’t know better I think this might be a bit of a dirty post with some sexual innuendo here!
You’re too virginal for that Jenny, right? 🙂
*clutches sides laughing* Oh, of course that’s it. Now where’s your “balls” entry, Phil?
Okay, here are a few one-liners (can you identify the original?):
“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my balls.”
“Go ahead, make my balls.”
“May the balls be with you.”
“Show me the balls!”
“The stuff that balls are made of.”
“They call me…MISTER Balls!”
Thanks for a chance to goof around, Jenny! 😉
“May the balls be with you.” <– I'm laughing my butt off over all of these, but ESPECIALLY that one. BAHAHAHAHA.
Frankly, my balls, I don’t give a damn.
An EXCELLENT addition, Ger!
Hey Jenny – so fun to have met you last week. I hope you found your kiddo something cute from the Disney store.
Okay – here goes – mine’s from Kindergarten Cop:
Lady cop to bad guy’s mom: “Not so tough without your balls (car).”
Or – same movie:
Little kid: “Maybe it’s your balls (a tumor).”
Arnold – “It’s not my balls.”
Fun game. And in that juggling guy playing the piano video – I don’t believe I saw any keys move on that keyboard. Hmmmmm. He does have talented balled though.

This game is awesome! Okay, here goes.
“We face each other as God intended. Sportsmanlike. No tricks, no weapons, skill against skill alone.”
“You mean, you’ll put down your balls and I’ll put down my balls, and we’ll try and kill each other like civilized people?”
[brandishing balls] “I could kill you now.”
“Frankly, I think the odds are slightly in your balls…”
And some one-liners like KB to leave you with:
“You can’t handle the balls!”
“You know, for balls.”
“That rug really tied the balls together.”
“There’s no balls in baseball!”
“Fat balls in a little coat.”
And good night. 🙂
Kelly, these are ROCKSTAR. I love the Princess Bride outtake the best.
“…you’ll put down your balls and I’ll put down my balls, and we’ll try and kill each other like civilized people?”
