    bust one's lady balls

    Would this expression be standard "to bust one's lady balls"? Is it similar in meaning to "to bust one's balls"?

    No, it's not standard, but you understand what is being said. It's an attempt to be clever.

    It might relate to a Little Britain skit about one Eddie Howard pretending to be a Victorian lady and having 'small lady testicles'.
