And don't forget, innuendo n., An indirect, subtle, usu. derogatory insinuation.
Man, I saw a bird fly innuendo!
What's your problem? I understood every word.
Oh that's sacry.
Man, I've been living down here too long.
On our first driving trip to Florida we stopped someplace in Georgia for gas. The attendant asked me a question, which I didn't understand so I asked him to repeat it. This time I got it and said "no thanks". My wife asked what he said since she didn't get it either. He was asking to check the oil but it came out like a cross between earl and oil.
To this day I can't repeat it like he did.
(What you see, is what you get!)
