And taken by Ken Testi, the same roadie who was still with Queen a few years later ... very cool.

Everything Microwave says is funny. It's really funny to deal with him.

The name "Testi" may remind some people with an immature sense of humor (like me and, evidently, microwave) of the word "testicles," which are the balls that can be found, in males, just underneath the penis. The testicles are where sperm--reproductive cells that can be released during sex--is produced. Because of their relation to sex and their unacceptability in normal polite conversation, talking about testicles is considered funny to some, so relating someone's last name to them is comedy gold. Also, Freddie Mercury is well known for being gay (actually, bisexual) so he would have liked testicles. Microwave is suggesting something here that is all kinds of weird.

TL;DR: Testi is like testicles, and testicles are funny. End of story.


These are the days of our lives

I'm upper, upper class high society
God's gift to ballroom notoriety
And I always fill my ballroom
The event is never small the social papers say I've got the biggest balls of all

CHORUS
I've got big balls
I've got big balls

And they're such big balls fancy big balls
And he's got big balls,
And she's got big balls,
But we've got the biggest balls of them all!

And my balls are always bouncing
My ballroom always full
And everybody comes and comes again If your name is on the guest list
No one can take you higher
Everybody says I've got great balls of fire!

CHORUS
Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they're held for pleasure,
They're the balls that I like best.

And my balls are always bouncing,
To the left and to the right.
It's my belief that my big balls should be held every night.

CHORUS
And I'm just itching to tell you about them
Oh, we have such wonderful fun
Seafood cocktail
Crabs Crayfish

Thank you, I wholeheartedly agree.

I wouldn't expect this high-brow humor to reach you.  Just as Trekkies don't find the bathroom / Klingon connection entertaining.  I would simply ignore my comments and finish vacuuming the basement before your mother gets home.  She's told you for weeks to clean your room!!!
