Kissing the turtle

I'm happy to report that I am not the only member of this family making faux pas.

On Friday, Mr. RK said a group of Filipina ladies at his work were discussing the fact that one of them had just gotten a pet turtle.

"I don't know why I got it," she said. "It doesn't do anything. It just sits there or crawls around the aquarium."

Mr. RK left to do a task in another part of the office and came back a couple of minutes later. The turtle owner said, "So I just picked it up and kissed it."

He said, "You kissed the turtle?"

And the entire group of women started laughing so hard they had to hold their sides and cry.

Mr. RK: "What?"

One of his Filipina co-workers explained that while the turtle's owner was indeed talking about giving her new pet a smooch, "kissing the turtle" in the Philippines was slang for giving oral sex.

Mr. RK turned about five shades of red and said, "It's a good thing I'm not here right now!"

Somehow, and I have no idea how, and I'm not sure I want to, but I knew this!

Poor Mr RK. :D

I could use this in a story.

Okay, this comment is rather lame.

Think I'll go back in my man cave for awhile to regroup and find my sense of humor.

My word verify is "sockyars".

Could it be blog slang for "putting on a condom"?

Ya know, "sock yars"?

It is always painful to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. Poor Mr. RK. Any who have been there can feel his pain.

So that means a "turtle" is a penis? That was an image I didn't need this early on a Monday morning. :)
