innuendo - Newest pictures


According to the Advanced Oxford Learner's Dictionary (7th Edition; electronic version) an inuendo is:

1) An indirect remark about somebody or something, usually suggesting something bad or rude.

2) A baseless invention of thoughts or ideas.

3) It can also be a remark or question, typically disparaging (also called insinuation), that works obliquely by allusion. In the latter sense, the intention is often to insult or accuse someone in such a way that one's words, taken literally, are innocent.

4) The term sexual innuendo has acquired a specific meaning, namely that of a "risque" double entendre by playing on a possibly sexual interpretation of an otherwise innocent uttering.

Many television shows aimed at a younger audience frequently use innuendoes as a way of attracting older viewers without offending their network's censorship. Shows such as Spongebob Squarepants, Rocko's Modern Life, Cow & Chicken, Ren & Stimpy and especially Animaniacs have been known to do this over the years.

Many songs may also use innuendos, such as Led Zeppelin's The Lemon Song.
