I suppose politicians will have to resort to using the word D**kless " until further guidance from the word police.

So every Italian hitter starts with a 2-0 count?

"You have no ovaries!" just doesn't have quite the same ring.....

I suppose calling men in Italy "nut free" is also a crime......

Oh, Hitler has only one ball.
Goering has two but quite small.
Poor Heinrich Himmler
Is somewhat similar,
And Goebbels has no balls at all.

Traditional, British, 1939-1945

At the Thanksgiving table, life could be interesting:

Please pass the melon balls -- no offense Alberto

Evidently in Italy, a justice of the peace (Alberto) does not have to recuse himself when his lawyer cousin (Vittorio) argues before him. Here's a wager - the ball-protecting judge (Maurizio) is closer in relation to Alberto than Vittorio is.

This ruling would never have occurred in France. Nobody in France has any balls to begin with.

For Italians. You may really just need this.

Reminds me of an old rugby song....

She reached for his pecker
His pecker was small
She reached for his balls
He had no balls at all

So in Italian, you would say, "Tu senza coglioni," meaning, you ain't got no... It's pronounced coo-YO-nee, but mostly, the last syllable is often dropped to say "coo-YOWN!"

Or you could be more subtle and say "Stai mangiando modo di soia troppo." (sty mon-GYAN-do MO-doh dee SOY-ah TROH-poh)

Translated from the Italian, this means, "You're eating way too much soy." (But in the Italian, it sounds MUCH nicer!)

Either way, it's probably best for Barbie's boyfriend Ken to cross Italy off the travel list.

There's a particular type of politician I'd describe as "All balls, no d!ck".
Also known as Chicken Hawks.

Steve, you mean Hillary?

I noticed that there was no mention of the judge's ruling on the follow-up phrase "...no blue chips."

"Your Honor, Plaintiffs would like to stamp and introduce into evidence exhibits numbers one and two."
