"Ed Balls"

Ed Balls, secretary of state for children, schools and families and candidate in the ongoing UK general election for the Labour party in the new constituency of Morley and Outwood, has a cool name.

To look at the less interesting half of this story: politics, politics, yay politics. There's an election in the UK and it features this guy, a life-long Labour type who's been Gordon Brown's right hand man for almost as long as Gordon Brown has had a right hand. All that's good and current-events-y.

But let's talk about this man's name. It's not just that his surname means 'testicles', though that's impressive enough. 'Ball' itself is a not-unheard-of surname (viz. Hugo, for example), but that 's' is just all the more impressive. His father, naturally enough, was a Balls too - but still 'Michael Balls' just isn't as impressive as Ed's name. That's a hell of a name.
