It is kind of funny how words can have equally innocent meanings and rather amusing meanings all around. I do think that there are times where some poor unfortunate person, unaware, says an innocent word and they are getting snickered at. And they have no absolutely no reason why they are being laughed at. Talk about how these poor confused people, who are hung up by different word meanings because of different language. Then again, I do admit that I have used words that do have innocent meanings, to get such a reaction the past, and then reprimand people for having such dirty minds. Of course, if you go back further into the language, with words that are out of play, you really do find a lot of doozies in there, with things that have been out of play, but have some rather sorrid meaning. The innocent meaning is out of practice but the not so innocent meaning is.

This is how languages have evolved since man could speak.
