See You In Hell!

Finally, a chance to use that dirty mind...

This morning I was thinking about all of the architectural and construction terminology that, although benign and asexual, actually sounds pretty dirty. At least to me.

For example, wouldn't you giggle if someone started talking to you about Caulk Shrinkage? How about Threaded Brass Nipples? Hose Bibbs? Double-Hung Windows? Erection Aids? Perhaps.....Sill Cocks? HMMMM? No? Wait a minute, I know: BALL PLUNGERS!!!

Anyway, your challenge is to list as many words and/or expressions that sound dirty, but really aren't.

Annnnnnnnnddddddd go.

I don't know how dirty these sound to other people, but they always make us giggle when we're feeling EXTRA immature:

cumquat
cockamamie
in golf... "choke up on the shaft"
cum file (short for cumulative, but always abbreviated)

Apparently, I'm stuck on words and phrases that start with "C."

Manhole brings "mandate" to mind, among others. I also like to say "nice rack" a lot, about coat racks, bike racks, a well-racked set of billiard balls. I once saw a well-endowed woman walk out of the grocery store holding nothing but two one-gallon jugs of milk. The Todd in me nearly lost it.

Nick, I had the exact same reaction when I recently saw a woman at the grocery store holding 2 honeydew melons.
I also burst into laughter upon hearing that my friend Dawn's 5-year-old son sucks on used teabags.

Kato, I still can't get past the "slit seeder"....

I promise I'll stop after this one:

Recently we got a new phone system at work, and they sent out an email telling us that now we all have "back door lines".

Also, if any of us Lein Girls ever decides to go into the adult entertainment industry, "Back Door Lein" would be a good stage name.

I gotta say Coccyx again. And only because I broke mine and it was sooooo fun to say that I went hiking in the Grand Canyon and broke my coccyx!

Granted actually breaking your coccyx is a hideously painful experience, but saying that word a lot was amusing.

I guess I should have holstered "slit seeder"... it's just too good.

Once when my sister Amy picked me up at the airport, she spotted my luggage on the luggage carousel, and vaulted forward, grabbing the suitcase and leaping back again in one fluid motion. The guy next to us was totally awestruck at Amy's grace & precision in retrieving the bag, and commented "Nice snatch!"

I saw the Guy Ritchie movie "Snatch" in the theaters a few years ago. I kid you not, the attended was yelling out "Who's here for Snatch? Is anyone here for Snatch?" to let us know the theater had been cleaned.

I saw the movie on a weekend, and I obviously don't get the kid or senior discount, so the ticket stub reads, amusingly enough: "Adult Wee Snatch".

Blogger Jege (Jen) said...

I just don't understand how people can be so oblivious. How on earth can you NOT foresee how standing in a theatre asking "who's here for snatch" might be misconstrued?

It reminds me of this guy I used to work for who named his newborn son Woody. Their last name was Palmer.

I am NOT kidding.

In architecture, they often talk about the vertical penetrations of buildings, and it is amusing to stand around listening to a bunch of big burly construction men talk about their erection plans.

When I was in seventh grade, we had to go door-to-door around the neighborhood in pairs for some fundraising drive.

We got to the front step at one house and noticed a sign on the door: DELIVERIES IN REAR. We were laughing so hard that we needed about five minutes to compose ourselves before we rang the doorbell.

Hey, we were 12.

Some enterprising vandals took out part of a library sign with a well-thrown rock. The sign was visible from the highway, so people driving into town could only imagine what they'd find at the Regina Pub ic Library. :)

Band teachers always tell students who are behind the beat to "catch up! You're a beat off." This, of course, results in a lot of giggling and snickering until the stupid band director realizes what he/she said, and then laughs, too.

My hubby has one to contribute: One time at band camp, er, I mean WORK, the project manager wanted hubby to stop what he was doing and help with an emergency, just for the day. According to the hubby, the boss walked up to him and said "don't mean to jerk you off (of what you're doing)..." and then they both started laughing.

As for me, whenever anyone uses loathsome corporate-speak & says "...low-hanging fruit..." I giggle like a 12-year-old.

When I was a hostess in high school, somebody changed the sign that says "Hostess will seat you" to "Hostess will eat you" And so I did! Never before have hostesses gotten tips...
And a much more recent one: I am teaching one regular ed math class so I get to teach things like factoring polynomials, graphing hyperbolas (Plural of hyperbola? anyone? anyone?)and so, of course, I got to say asymptote several times throughout my lecture and (subconsiously) I misspelled it: "assymptote." I kept such a straight face that nobody busted out laughing, though a few little snickers escaped.

When I was in highschool, our dean of students came on the morning announcements to complain about people dropping chewing gum (which was verbotten anyway) and it getting stuck in the carpet. Only he apparently pulled a Freudian slip and complained about "cum in the rug" instead. Best homeroom EVAR.

One day in high school physics class we had a substitute teacher.

We were discussing Hadrons (particles made from quarks & gluons), and he had a little Freudian slip. Now remember the spelling here; they're called HADRONS. But he said something like this:

"The idea of the quarks was first proposed to explain the many observed Hardons in the 50's and 60's".

And much laughter ensued.
