Here's an interesting American slang idiom: Balls. Depending on the context it can be used to mean courage, fun or playfulness (kidding). Here are some examples:

 

1- You gotta alot of balls [you have a lot of courage]

2- I had a ball at the cookout [ I had fun at the cookout]

3- I'm breaking your balls [I'm only kidding]
