marbles

Definitions

Slang

  • plural noun the testicles. A predictable drawing of a literal parallel (rather than, as some have claimed, an example of rhyming slang on ‘marble halls’). Pills, balls, stones and nuts are similar metaphors.
  • plural noun common sense, sanity, mental faculties. This use of the word was originally American, perhaps deriving from a folk tale.
