This is a question Accidental innuendo

Freddy Woo writes, "A woman I used to work with once walked into a car workshop to get her windscreen replaced, and uttered the immortal line, "Have you seen the size of my crack?"

What innuendos have you accidentally walked into? Are you a 1970s Carry On film character?

American flatmate
At uni, going out for an evening cigarette. Mentioned to impressionable excitable just-off-the-plane-for-first-time-in-another-country merkin flatmate that we were (as we put on our long overcoats) "going out to smoke a fag".

Much cultural misunderstanding, and horror/hilarity ensued.

Apologies for length, but they were Dunhill Internationals in my posing intellectual days...

It's funny because Americans use the word 'fag' to mean bumsexual, whereas here it's slang for cigarette.

Those crazy Americans, when will they ever learn?

It's funny because humour is exponentially cumulative, so the sixteenth time a joke is posted is many times funnier than the fifteenth... and so on.

It's funny because of what Enzyme said, and I'm just supporting him because repetition is the new funny.

It's funny because lots of people have already laughed at it despite it not containing any humour, see also The Catherine Tate Show.

Yeah, I realise it's not.
I just wanted to fit in and be accepted. It was not big and not clever. But I will learn from my mistakes.

I said 'fit in.' It could be taken to sound a little rude.
EDIT: @al - why did you smell like a mouldy dog carcass?

@Supreme Crow - Don't apologise, I wasn't getting at you, I thought your post was funny, I just thought mine may have been taking it a little too far.

What was I thinking, this is B3ta.

Cancer FTW!

Is this the same Snap who
formed under Italian aliases becuase "they thought the public had negative preconceived ideas about German music[1]"?

Who has positive preconceived ideas about German music?
