It was a ballsy statement!
If you find your inner-self giggling like a fifth-grader every time someone mentions 'balls' then this story will have you floored. Nassau County Executive Laura Curran chose some rather funny lines for her speech when she was around warning people about their conduct on tennis courts during the pandemic.
Speaking at a tennis court she wanted people to bring their own tennis balls so they don't come in contact with other people's equipment, she ventured on to say: "You can kick their balls, but you can't touch them." The police officers standing behind her could barely contain their laughter and she realized what she said, immediately. "I'm gonna blush, sorry," she said, feeling a tad bit awkward.
But that wasn't the only one, she also had a line that went deeper into the matter. She said: "To avoid confusion between whose balls are whose, you can use a marker, like a Sharpie, to mark out an X or put someone's initials on them." While that might be good advice on the court, we suggest you don't try this on other kinds of balls!
And obviously, people had their own pearls of wisdom to share!
