by Zeus' balls

exclamation. A testicular, Olympian idiom appropriate for very few occasions.

Related terms: for God's sack, for Christ's sweet biscuits.

Real citation: "By Zeus' balls, I forgot about Jake! If they don't show Gaeta or Tyrol walking him around the ship next episode, I'll be pretty upset. After all, he's about the fifth or sixth most important member of the resistence, which makes him an adorable war hero as far as I'm concerned."

Made-up citation: "By Zeus' balls, I am most pleased with this gnocchi in a vodka sauce with calamari and extra noodles."
