Bo Hoot

BO adv., n. pl. no
mai mee (thai)
HOOT n. testicle
an-tha (thai)

An advance language is rich in irony and sarcasm. Hokkien-speaking people are never short of irony, and sarcastic remarks. Bo hoot is one such irony.

Bo hoot means "cowardice", "lack of substance" and in Thai, kee klad. In simple terms, it means no balls.

I can confidently state, without the help of any survey, that the majority of men would want to have their testicles intact. They would fight tooth and nail to preserve this essential organ.

Surely, those who dare to have their bollocks severed must be extrememly brave, however stupid this act may appear to the outside world. Bo hoots, in my opinion, must therefore be the bravest group of men. So the irony is using the phrase bo hoot to describe a cowardly act.

So before you call someone bo hoot, think carefully: Who is braver?
