When the two meanings combine, you can end up with some major ValuesDissonance - for instance, the Englishman who can't understand why his Canadian friend just broke his nose; after all, he was only having a larf, right? It should also be noted that it has a somewhat different application in parts of the LGBT community, where "cunty" is used as a euphemism for extreme, often stuck-up confidence and haughtiness, particularly in the ballroom scene. As an extension of that, it is also sometimes used to refer to more flamboyant and often prim and proper gay men in African-American and Latino LGBTQ circles.
