    porn

    Hello

    Sorry, no porn, but please look at this:

    With the girl of my dream, of course I would love to hit a “home run”. But with a “dog from the pound”, I wish not to use my “bat”

    What are the possible inferences of this 'witty' remark, do you think?
    I do not get the dog from the pound part.

    thanks for any suggestion

    Distinctly rude description of a not very pretty girl - she's being compared to a rescued dog.

    Hello

    Thanks. One more q if you would not mind. Am I right in thinking that 'bat' is the equivalent of the male sexual organ?
    Is this bon mot what we call a double entendere?

    Yes, and it's definitely not a "bon mot" - rather it is a metaphor

    I'm not knocking Anglika's personal choices, but to some it certainly would be a witticism, a bon mot. Language serves all ages and all types.

    ...and a "home run" is slang for "going all the way", or having sex.

    And yes, this type of conversation is often referred to as "filled with double entendres." It is a device often used, say, on TV shows so that they can talk all about sex without actually using any biological terms or "dirty" words.
