Those Darn Trouble Giblets!

You may have noticed I'm very fond of words. *grin* I collect interesting and unsual expressions.

Did you know that a slang expression for the male genitalia in the 18th century was "trouble giblets"?

Think about it for a minute.

The first time I read that, I finished up in tears of laughter over those darn trouble giblets. And every time I visualize what a chicken neck actually looks like, I'm off again. *snicker* But when the DH asks me what I'm laughing at, I tell him lies. I'm kind that way.

I bet you anything you like, next time you see Your Beloved in the shower, you're going to get a fit of the giggles. What are you going to say when he asks you what's so funny, hmm?

Denise *still laughing*

I will tell him, but then I'm evil that way. Or else I just give him an evil smile and make him worry. Again, evil that way. I love to torture my man.

ROFLMAO!!!!!!! Trouble giblets? That is too good. Does that mean that when a man back then had jock itch he complained of his giblets itching?

Snort... D you are crazy!

Giblets make me think of the package inside the turkey with all the organs and follows the neck you pull out... nothing at all sexy about that word, but I will certainly be thinking something else this Thanksgiving.

Were they trouble because they were just giblets or the giblets meant trouble for whoever was going to ah... receive them?
