In the first gulf war in 1991, there was a great belief in Amman that Saddam Hussem would most certainly stike with a nuclear weapon!
In Arabic “Nuclear” is translated as “Nawawi”, while “Sperm” is translated as “Manawi”. Notice the similarity in spelling?
My mother’s grandma used to say – by mistake – Saddam will strike with his “Manawi” which means that he will stike with his sperm when she meant that he will strike with his nuclear weapons! lol. People tried to correct her, but she couldn’t realize her mistake. They still make fun of the incident.
