When someone does something that's very brave, or at least very risky, it is said that they have Brass Balls, even if they are female. No reason has ever been given for why brass balls are either braver or more foolish than meat balls or billiard balls or... any kind of ball at all, really.[[note]]It's probably some sort of odd metaphor involving the term "brazen".[[/note]] The balls part we get, though. Evidently there is a direct correlation between them and boldness.

Apparently it originated from pawnshops (with their distinctive brass balls hanging outside) where sellers would drive a hard bargain.
