Variation of the "-gry" question

The game show thread reminded me of this.

There was a game show hosted by Tom Kennedy called “Split Second.”

One of the questions was something like this:

“Excluding plurals, there are only three words in the English language that start with ‘manho-’ One is ‘manhole.’ What are the other two?”

I remember that one was “manhood,” but I didn’t remember the other one. The only other word I’ve found is “man-hour,” which is obviously hyphenated. I presume that that is the third word.

Just something pointless to share.

manho…like a man-slut.

The word in question (manhoman) is a polite way of saying “sunofabitch”.

Ex. “manhoman, this has been a crappy day”.

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

Satan, just drop the Scrabble CD-ROM now. There ya go. Now put your hands up in the air. That’s it. Now back away from it slowly. Keep your hands up! Good boy.

Now, now… This one is not going to be a novella, Strainger! When I get home, I’ll get to work on it…

Yer pal,

I can’t believe you people! The other word is obviously MANHOGRY!
