OK-Dan-I always read through the definitions that you post and usually get a chuckle out of one or two of them. But...you really could have left the last one off. It was my husbands first idea and I had JUST finished convincing him that 'funbags' would not count. Now, after reading your post-he assures me it will-thanks for that! :evil:
