When Sally found out that Harry was cheating on her, she replaced the personal lubricant in his travel toiletry bag with extra strength yelve.

unfortunately missed out because I still haven't got over Bales mentioning Elvis.

No, I said itís not the pinis, itís the yelve. Well could be, said Mary, it hasnít been used in a year. Yeah,well maybe if you dressed up more often it would be used more often, duhh!! Oh really, well maybe if you coaxed it in and not tried to force it like you always doÖ.Mary looks over her shoulder, do you even have it in the right spot? What are you doing now?
Iím putting some oil on the pinis, that usually works. I thought you said it was the yelve that was rusty. It is the yelve thatísÖ oh justÖ never mind, and hold still! Itís in, exclaims John!

In parts of the US, a statement like that can be classified as reason for justifiable homicide.

You'd better lie low for a while, just in case.
