'A euphemism is a generally innocuous word or expression used in place of one that may be found offensive or suggest something unpleasant'. (I Googled the word)
I wonder who will ever wear that stupid coverall.
I feel sorry for Bristol having boobs like that???
Chris: The euphemism I refer to is bristols, a vulgar English word for boobs Astrid
Is that what it is... smile
Chris: English slang Elizabeth

Hahahah.. If I ever knoew how just things ended up being called Bristols, then I've forgotten it now. I like the artwork that looks like the corner of a room.
Chris: And what about the taped-up cabinet too?

Oh, now I understand the 'Euphemismus' - www.thefreedictionary.com/bristols - a funny word, indeed! I read also Astrid's comment. The 'Krauts' are a bit more reserved in describing those female crown jewels, but we have lots of words to describe the male crown jewels.
Chris: Oh we have lots too Philine..

O dear!

Rather nice looking red door - bet Annie would like that.
Chris: I'll buy her one
I must say I have never heard of bristols
Chris: English slang Mary
Haha. That is pretty clear then. Not pink cakes with cherries on them
Chris: If they were that they would be very fattening Janet

Does anyone buy these things do you suppose?
Chris: It wasn't for sale Anne
We all know what the vulgar version of Bristols refers to but I would be interested to know what the German words for male crown jewels are that Philine refers to.
Chris: That is a very interesting point Brian: we must tackle her on this..
Chris: Couldn't resist it..
Rather a poor representation! Lacking a certain detail, not to say three-dimensionality!
Chris: Indeed Tom, not very realistic
