Chesty

In a classic Simpsons episode, Homer tries to legally change Marge’s name to Chesty LaRue.  Chesty has a different meaning for Homer and the rest of America than it does to people in Ireland.  In Ireland, Chesty LaRue would just have a cough and cold.  At home we would say, “You sound congested.”  Here in Ireland they say, “You sound chesty.”  So ladies, if while in Ireland some strange Irishman makes reference to your chestiness don’t be offended.   He is just concerned for your health.
