a little brainteaser for the weekend…

Cheers

My friends Kelsey, Sarah and I were talking today about the phrase “balls to the wall.” As Kelsey aptly put it, in what situation would anyone ever put their balls to the wall? Anyone know the origin of this nice little phrase? Help us out and post your insight.

And, dear readers? Let’s go balls to the wall this weekend.

UPDATE: Reader Mike has an answer for us:

The term “balls to the wall” is an old truckers term (there is a difference between a truck driver and a trucker) While on a “Hot” load (needed yesterday) the driver would be up driving all night, which us really tiring and they have to open their eyes real wide and have their (eye) balls to the wall (windshield) all night.

Sounds good to me. Thanks, Mike!
