The "cock" thing happens often. A friend once asked for "rum and cock" and another said, "will someone give me some money so that I can go and buy some cock?".

@srin: Hmm... I guess it sounds even funnier when spoken :). We had a school comp. sci. teacher who kept referring to the machines' hard/floppy dix.

Its NOT "ha" giving
Han Hanaa Han

It IS a tilted "Dh" giving
Dhan Dhanaa Dhan

Makes more sense now but
Still Quite funny :D
