  • Pronounced "pah-stees," it's a Cornish delicacy, like a big hearty pie filled with chopped turnips/parsnips, potatoes, carrots, etc.

    Pronounced "pay-stees," it's the things exotic dancers wear to cover their hoo-hahs in states where hoo-hah exposure is prohibited.

    I added this word solely to see what kind of definition WeirdNet would come up with, and it didn't! Bastid.

  • Oh, this would have been a good one. :-)

    Pasties! Yum! (Not the nipple cap type.)

  • c_b, I like your definition for hoo-hah coverings the best!!

  • Now I'm wondering exactly how many states prohibit hoo-hah exposure. *runs off to conduct research*

  • I think you can google for it. Though, for best results, put "hoo-hah exposure" in quotation marks.

  • This word makes me think of pastries. Or at least, it used to. Now it just makes me think of hoo-has, with a side of exotic dancers.

  • As a general rule I prefer Cornish pies without nipples. Nipples are best consumed separately.

  • PS

    Isn't there some kind of Italian pastry called "Nipples of Venus"?

  • In my experience, pastries might as well be hoo-has with a side of exotic dancers. :-/

    I always thought that was a madeupical pastry from Amadeus, arby.
