We all know a word/sentence that we think sounds rude that really isn't.

I will start with...

Flange.

Now, lets keep this on track and out of the gutter like my last post descended into.

@Thug I hate to worry you, but if you look that one up on Urban Dictionary you will not be happy.

Yeah I know it has various meanings, but its also a part of machinery that butts up against another, so quite innocent.

Yeah, Urban Dictionary ruins innocence. Even Mary Poppins isn't immune.

Cockarouse
(a person of consequence among the American colonists)

Cock-Head
(the rounded or pointed top of a grinding-mill spindle forming a support for the stone)

Prickshaft
(an arrow used specifically in target practice, or can refers to the arrow that falls most closely to the target in a game of archery.)

Slut-Hole
(A Victorian English word for a bin or garbage heap, or a receptacle for rubbish.)

Spunk-Water
(Nineteenth century American slang for the water that collects in hollows of tree stumps, spunk-water was once believed to be a cure for warts; Mark Twain mentions it in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.)

Vaginula
(the part of the archegonium of a moss enveloping the base of the embryo or seta after the upper part has been torn away)


I guess if you find a lot of Spunk Water, you can always put it into the Slut Hole, making sure you don't damage any Vaginula nearby.

I once managed to use this sentence in my job (Engineer)...
You need to put a stiffening member next to the front bottom hole.
That was a good day.

I have been know to act innocent, when using phrases such as in Carry On Films....
There are various pieces of checking equipment I take to the female office person on a Monday morning to do the paperwork and pack for postage.
It was a long box that would not fit in a normal container.
So I took it up to her and said, I wanted to show her how long it was today, so she did not get a surprise when she saw the size of it at the last moment on Monday.

childish I know.
