A Pain in the Neck

OK, so we get homework from French class. No-one does it, right! It's a rule.

Guess what? The new guy has not only done his homework but it turns out he has covered his house in Pink and Yellow Post-it® Notes for feminine and masculine objects to help him remember which is which.

Oh yeah. We were learning parts of the body and "the neck " is "le cou" which sounds to me like "coo". If you get the pronunciation a little wrong you say "le cul" which sounds to me like "cue" since you don't pronounce the final "l". So a pain in the neck is "une douleur dans le cou" but "une douleur dans le cul" is a pain in the arse. How funny is that?
