Translate this phrase from the Dave Chappelle Show

I was watching a Chappelle Show on the tivo tonight, and he was saying that he saw a music video with a phrase that could only have made it past the censors because white people don't know what it means yet. The phrase was something like "skeet-skeet-skeet."

Apparently, I'm one of the white people that Chappelle was talking about because I have no idea what that means. But since I hate being left out of a good joke, I would appreciate it if someone would translate that phrase for me.

Thanks.

Semen. Otherwise known by many other euphemisms.

I hate to hijack for such silly reason, but I have another Chappelle Show question that I just remembered.

The other day they aired the "I Know Black People" episode. At the end of the show he mentioned a question that none of the contestants got right. It was something to the effect of: "You meet someone on the street and give them two dimes and a nickel, you just gave them a ______"

Anyone remember the answer? I may not remember the setup correctly, but I am fairly certain it was two dimes and a nickel.

After only having heard it used before in 'Get Low,' I didn't even think it had a meaning. Is there any reason that half the chorus is just repeating 'semen'?

:sigh: Fourteen years old, and already behind the times...

It's not just semen, it's the act of, er, producing it. It generally, I think, is said with a motion. You know. In the song referenced, it goes something like "Down these females crawl! Down skeet skeet skeet skeet skeet skeet..."

I asked this question in Cafe Society a few months ago, BTW. I found out later that all my guy friends knew it intuitively - I suppose it's just that I don't think about the penis every waking moment.

It's a funny feeling, being part of the joke, isn't it?
