    Cupid's Chokehold

    ~~And I know it sounds so old
    But cupid got me in a chokehold
    And I'm afraid I might give in
    Towels on the mat my white flag is wavin' ~~

    A chokehold is a hold (in judo or wrestling) that restricts and/or stops breathing (makes thavictime choke) and so leads to a submission. Throwing a towel into the ring (in boxing) is a sign of submission (the boxer isn't in a position to do it, so someone outside the ring - typically the boxer's 'second' - throws it).

    Similarly waving a white flag ... [I guess you know that one]
