Uhh... gangerh, did you miss the part where I said "just kidding"? Thanks for the help--but I was making a joke! :)

Can do the way a Cockney says it. However, more to the point, it rhymes with 'balls'. Also this phrase leads to the expression'a load of cobbler's' or 'a load of old cobbler's' both meaning 'a load of balls'. Hope that helps!
Wow. I didn't think "awls" rhymed all that well with "testicles."... just kidding. :)
