Somewhat inappropriate connections

At the Pack Meeting tonight, we had eight Webelos Scouts cross over to Scout Troop 119. Pack Chairman Don talked about the years these boys had been together. He said at times it was like herding cats, but now that they're going to be Boy Scouts, it'll be like -- well, herding bigger cats.

And my brain fired a stray neuron, reminding me that in German, für große Bengaltiger gehen means not, "going for big Bengal tigers," but -- well, "going for small Bengal tigers" means to take a leak, so you can figure out the contrasting term.

Multilingual potty humor. Something eleven-year-olds would appreciate.
