There are some references here that I don't get. But I think it's somewhat about male genitalia

Nope; gladius is a sword, pugio a small dagger.

Gladius is a sword, scutum is a large shield much like the one in the picture.

Pugios are a short but broad-bladed dagger, ballista are pretty much a giant cross-bow in Roman times. They are referencing Roman weapons here as a joke to draw similarities of military weapons being compared to more civilian accessible weaponry.

Oh and Lictor's is a man-servant of the Magistrate, during early Ancient Rome were the only "police" they had access to. They were bodyguards and hand of the Magistrate. It wasn't until later, when order began to collapse in Roman civilization that what we know as Prefects began.

So during that time, Magistrates and their Lictors were the figures to discipline and punish.

You're thinking of a scrotum. A scutum is a Roman shield.
