Who Wants a Cock? A What???

A woman should never shout out loud that she wants a “cock” unless she is looking for some pure unadulterated fun in the bedroom, or in public if that is her preference.  Unless it’s a mistake, and she meant, Coke, the sodapop, and not cock, the rooster or the you-know-what-I-mean.

Pronunciation can be very tricky, and if we’re not careful, it can get messy and get you in trouble.  The English teacher here (I’m guessing she’s Korean), pronounced Coke with the schwa (German) sound instead of a long O, the same sound in oval, okra, or Oprah.
