  • WeirdNET, WeirdNET, WeirdNET. There are a few things your parents may not have fully explained to you.

  • Hahaha! Oh, this one gets my vote for weirdest WeirdNet definition.

  • I think it may be treating breasts as a variant of breast and supplying the same definition.

  • In that case, bilby is definitely on the mark. :-)

  • In all seriousness, I read this definition and thought it meant "trunk" as in "steamer trunk," like a footlocker.

  • Consult WeirdNet and it tells you trunk is 'the main stem of a tree'; that's actually pretty sensible as a first definition, but here the images get worse.

  • Yes, it appears to be using trunk in the sense of chest (a storage box for body parts?) or torso. As in the bird robin redbreast which has a reddish chest, not as in having a red suitcase or a red mammary gland, which would make it a tit I think, and ... um, where was I?
