I got a confession to make: inside, I’m actually twelve. Every time somebody says titmouse (come one people, what the fuck?), woodcock (get it? cock!) or, as I recently heard, pussy willows. PUSSY willows? Am I the only adult who can’t say or hear that without thinking: höhö, he just said ‘pussy’? You know, I doubt it.
And it doesn’t help that the German translation for titmouse is Tittenmaus, which is the literal translation and means a woman with big breasts. The bird titmouse is a Meise in German.
So, now you know.
