I was listening to an old Rodney Dangerfield routine where he mentioned his doctor: Dr. Vinny Boombatz(sp?).
This brought peals of laughter from the audience.
To me, Boombatz sounds like the vaguely Italian/vaguely Polish name of a generic New Jersey street thug. For that I wouldn’t have expected the audience to laugh so hard.
Am I missing something here? Is Boombatz some kind of dirty word?
