A couple of nights ago, I went to the first out of three sessions dealing with the topic rhetoric. It is something that my employer is kind enough to treat me and my group to, and also something that I’ve always been interested in.
Funny thing happened, though, when the guy presenting said an unexpected word. What did he say? He said:
Instead of “Hitta”, which means “Find”.
Why is that funny? Because that word means “pussy” and isn’t really a word one would expect from someone teaching the fine art of rhetoric. At first I thought I was the only one hearing it and that maybe it was only my perverse imagination, but afterwards everyone attending the meeting sneaked up to each other, saying:
Did he really say fitta, or was it just me?
So, I guess no one is perfect… 🙂
