Warning To The Grammarically Correct: If it just bothered you that I wrote "Grammarically", you may as well leave now because my grammar gets even worse.

I Guess It Really Is Hotter Than Balls Outside...

I was just curious (Read: Bored) and looked up the origin of the phrase "Hotter Than Balls".

It's an old wives' tale that testicles can be used to measure hot temperatures to within a few degrees. Hot as balls is around 100 degrees Fahrenheit; hotter than balls is anything hotter. (See witch's tit.)
Example: This summer has been hotter than balls.

Man I feel sorry for whoever's testicles were used during THAT experiment!
