I've been thinking about Ravenclaw's motto, namely "Wit beyond measure measure is man's greatest treasure". It got me thinking about how "wit" used to be slang for a certain bit of male anatomy. I want to add it to the page, but 1) I'm not entirely certain that applies for medieval times too (though I think it does) or just Elizabethan times and 2) I'm not certain if it was intentional or just a happy coincidence. If it was intentional, it'd be one hell of a Genius Bonus.

What do you guys think? GCPTR or not?

Doesn't seem like an example to me. It seems more like an unintentional innuendo than an actual attempt to slip a sexual metaphor by. The other examples already on the page just seem more concrete examples of slipping past hints that students are making out, for example, while this just seems like a theory.

I have to agree, that's a pretty big stretch.

That isn't GCPTR at all.
