    course

    Hello,

    could you please tell me the meaning of the word "course" in the following sentence:

    Mr. Smith has an endless supply of course jokes.

    Thank you very much.

    It should read "coarse jokes." Coarse is a synonym for uncouth or unrefined. In this case, Mr. Smith has an ample supply of rude or "naughty" jokes (jokes that include curse words and sexual or ethnic themes.)
