For God's sake!

Only one meaning

Just a little more info on this exciting topic. Unlike "cock", "хуй" has only one meaning. It is meant to be a vulgar word in all contexts. Also, it means the same thing in other slavic languages as well - so many peoples can now rejoice in seeing their favorite word in Yahoo maps !

Additionally, a very useful but often neglected property of this word, is that it can be spelled in latin alphabet like this = "xyu", and thus cleverly disguised as a mathematical equation.

I'm all for it. While some may argue this was a pointless stunt, it is also harmless. And, in my opinion, funny and amusing...
