Lawyer defending arson suspect flees court with pants on fire


Ahh colloquial meanings of words.

For many years I was somewhat confused when in the American film Armed and Dangerous, Meg Ryan has a dance with someone at some event and afterwards says jokingly she was dancing so close to him she could probably get the guys fingerprints from her fanny...!

Only when I learnt Americans have a different meaning for that word than us Brits the penny dropped.
