Gents Lingri anyone?

This happened a few years back, we were still in college and were roaming around a posh South Delhi market with a visiting friend. Now this chap - lets call him BS, was from a small town in Haryana. The archetypal Jat, he was a bit understaffed in the English department but curious as hell about everything he saw but didn't understand. All very harmless until he spied a big poster of this sex bomb in an itsy - bitsy bra & panty item... and then it happened

BS : Bhai, yo lingri ke hove hai (Bro, what does lingri (lingerie) mean?)

Me (now knowing how to explain): Lingri - bole toh underwear.. ladies ka kacha banian (Lingerie means undergarments for ladies)

In a flash, BS was inside the shop, with us running after him trying to stave off disaster. But before we could do anything, he'd caught the attention of this sales girl, who was trying to show some lacy stuff to a bunch of PYTs .....

"Madam, kuch gents lingri dikha do, mhare size mein !!!" (Ma'am, can you please show me some gents lingerie in my size)

Hearing that, we stopped dead in our tracks.... started looking here and there and simply sauntered out....

BS comes out a minute later, looking cool as ever... " Itni badi dukaan se saali, sab ladies ke liye... chal baad me le lenge, VIP ki dukaan se " (Damn, such a huge store, but all for ladies.... nevermind, we'll pick up some from a VIP store later)

Phew !!
