In the 1988 film funny farm Chevy Chase was eating lamb fries which are also known as sheep balls.

In the film Funny Farm, the main character, Andy Farmer (Chevy Chase), breaks a local record by eating thirty lamb fries, only to discover what they actually are and spit the thirty-first out in revulsion.

Lamb fries are lamb testicles that are used as food.

Historically they were parboiled, cut in half, and seasoned.

Lamb testicles are served in a variety of cuisines, including Italian, Basque, breaded and fried in some barbecue restaurants, Chinese, Caucasian, Persian and Iranian Armenian (called donbalan), and Turkish.

The dish is rarely served at restaurants in the United States, but can occasionally be found at Iranian restaurants.

Lamb fries, often served in a cream gravy, are a traditional dish in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky.

In English, testicles are known by a wide variety of euphemisms, including "stones", "Rocky Mountain oysters", "prairie oysters" and sweetbread.

Lamb testicles are often called 'lamb fries' or simply fries (though that may also refer to other organ meats).

Euphemisms are used in many other languages.

Funny Farm is a 1988 American comedy film starring Chevy Chase and Madolyn Smith.

The film was adapted from a 1985 comedic novel of the same name by Jay Cronley.

The movie was filmed on location in Vermont, mostly in Townshend, Vermont.

It was the final film directed by George Roy Hill.
