-->"It's such a lovely day today. Let's go to the Zoo!" exclaimed a vaguely aroused Carren.
-->"Why, that's a fantastic idea" ejaculated Eddy. "I shall awaken our baby children Belle and Bill".
* [[http://www.womenrussia.com/glossary.htm This site]] gives a list of common mistranslations used by women on Russian dating agencies, often caused by [[BlindIdiotTranslation using outdated dictionaries for translation]] -- among them are "gay" (used in the old sense), "intercourse" (not what you think) and "intercourse agency" (a dating agency).

* Looking up 'spunk' at the Urban Dictionary will net you references to Australian slang for a really hot guy (supposedly a contraction of "sexy punk"), and American slang for marijuana. It's even more fun to look it up on dictionary.com--not only does the word "punk" appear again (in an even ''more'' obscure meaning involving wood--no, not ''that'' kind of wood, the kind you light fireworks with!)--but it brings up ads for sperm banks. Kinda puts a whole new spin on this classic exchange between nervous new employee Mary and her irascible boss, from ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' (''circa'' 1970):
--->'''Lou''': You've got spunk...
--->'''Mary''': Wh- why, thank you.
--->'''Lou''': ...I ''hate'' spunk!
