1) Primary and secondary. A con sometimes requires a two-person team, one who plays the primary role, and the other who plays a secondary role.
"Too many angles" = too complicated a plot. Too many ways to go wrong.
2) "The intelligence of a thermos" = the intelligence of an insulated bottle = no brains.
3) balls = testicles = manhood
4) Brady or Osmond = naive, innocent
"I had a blast" = I had a very good time
5) brass balls = outrageous daring, brave to the point of being dangerous
