Languages

I'm having fun trying to learn a bit of Spanish on my own. I'll give you all some examples of why I like this language.

seesaw (subibaja) subir means rise and baja means lower.
glasses (anteojos) ante means before and ojos means eyes.
crotch (entrepierna) entre means between and pierna means legs.
playpen (corralito) translates to little corral.
nostrils (ventana de la nariz) means windows of the nose.
and . . . my naughty one:
Mexican slang for breasts is bubis (pronounced as boobies).

I'd love to have you girls post your own language funstuff here!
