Is that a gun in your mariconera, or are you just glad to see me?

Time for a bump. Folks are in need of a laugh.  :)

I never understood the word fanny pack, as if if was carried the other way around.

Ok, this is my theory, and be warned, more potentially offensive verbiage below.

I believe the term "fanny pack" started in England.  On a trip to the UK I was told that over there, they call a woman's "front" her fanny.  Apparently it's an offensive term there, much like the American slang term that starts with "P" and to quote a rap song "is another way to call a cat or kitty."

think "pussy willow".....:laugh:

I always wondered why we called it a "fanny pack" here when it's worn in the front, but over here some people will refer to their rear ends as their "fanny".

This really makes me laugh, but I have a friend out in LA who refers to his bag as his "pussy pouch".

:laugh:


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

But it was originally meant to be worn on the bottom right? Thats why you guys call it a fanny pack and us a bum bag.

I suspect when they were first invented, they were worn in the back. Then people discovered how easily a skillful thief could open the zipper and steal your wallet, or whatever, especially in a crowd, so they started wearing them in front for security.

I'm surprised nobody has bumped this thread yet. This is the funniest thread ever.

Chrissi, do you still have Ennis's "queer case"? Are you taking it to Alberta with you?  ;D

Sadly no. :(
The pic is long gone and I didn't save it. I googled before, but can't find it anymore.

On a brighter note, maybe Ennis came by and took it with him. ;)
He really needed his queer case for more fishing trips with Jack. :D

The 'something lost in the translation' works both ways.  One woman was wearing one of those cool t-shirts with Chinese characters on it, just to be pulled aside by her Asian friend and told that her t-shirt said "I f--k dragons."

I want one of those t-shirts.  ;)
