    Thank you Mr,Gillnetter , I know it is not a polite term but I use it with my brother just for kidding and he know I was not serious , so ,should not use it when we are joking with people as freinds?, please tell me

Even with modification, the term has serious implications - you may get away with telling your brother this, but I would not say it to many people who you do not know well.

    Thank you my teacher, make sure I will not use this sentence again even if I joke.

    Cheers.
