RE: Dave Bedlams - Frozen Balls
Monkeys were never made out of brass, it was too expensive. They were made from wood.
The saying means:- If they were made out of brass then cold temperatures would freeze the cannon balls off them.

The cat-o-nine-tails used to be kept in a velvet bag, so when you let the cat out of the bag you'd be in for a good kicking.
