And also a British slang word:

e.g.

That's a load of balls! (= nonsense)

Balls! We don't stand a chance! (= Come off it!; Damn!)

Martin, you've ballsed it all up. (balls sth up = foul sth up; cock sth up; mess sth up)

Pete threw a party for Rita but without beer it was a real balls-up. (balls-up = mess-up; cock-up)
