Rhetoric class – funny word

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:

Fitta

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… πŸ™‚

    A Catholic priest friend of mine was meeting with some teenagers and discussing vocations with them: a vocation could be religious life, married life, single life or other. He was asked about how does he deal with his sexual urges and he responded saying that they have to learn to suppress them but sometimes it gets really hard!

    Can you imagine how red he turned at the time?

  • I'm not the very best in Swedish, but I think "fitta" means more something like "twat" or "cunt" as "pussy" ;-).

    Faruk,

    Yes, I know! πŸ™‚

    Robert W,

    Ha ha! No, not really… πŸ™‚

    Jules,

    Oh man, that must've been terrible! πŸ™‚

    Jeena,

    Absolutely true, maybe "pussy" was a bit nice. "Cunt" sounds like the best translation, "fitta" is a fairly harsh word.

    Have you heard that classic blooper from the radio news? The (male) news anchor is reporting about a horrible plane crash, and he's about to say that the rescue team is still hoping to find more survivors. (Or maybe that they've given up hope, I can't remember.)

    In mid-sentence, he can't make up his mind about whether to say 'finna' or 'hitta' (both words mean 'find' in Swedish). You can probably guess the result… πŸ™‚

    The poor guy realises what he's said, so he tries again… and again…. I'm really impressed that he managed to remain so calm throughout the whole thing.

    Tommy,

    That's terrible when it happens in such a serious situation…

    I prefer it when it doesn't matter that much, but is plain funny. πŸ™‚
