One day one of the MOD was walking down the aisle but the tag was stinking up out of the back of his sweater. I tell him to wait a second, and fix it saying...

Me: There it's fixed, now you don't look like a chooch
MOD: What the heck is a chooch?!? :headscratch:
Me: :eek: Umm, I'm not sure but according to my mother its not good......

Heh, I always like when folks (including me) try to use words that really only get used within their own circle...

I take it you're Italian. "Chooch" is how you would pronounce "ciuccio", the Italian word for "pacifier" or, if you're British, "dummy".

"Ciuccio" has become Italian slang for a fool or dummy, due to its literal definition.

Makes one wonder, though, what the Italians thought about Vin Diesel's family film "The Pacifier".

Not exactly, Mom's side is mostly German; Dad's side is mostly Norwegian.

However all of the paternal Grandma's sisters married Itailians. Mom could have picked it up from Dad's Cousins. They used to have dinner together all the time before the kids were born....

In some circles, cooch is short for coocher, a slang term for female genitalia...
