Howdy Do You Wipe That?
Being only in Canada for a year, I was unfamiliar with certain words. This camp leader, an old guy of about eighteen, gave me a chore to do on my own. He asked me to clean some camping lanterns. "I've nothing to clean the lanterns with," I stated. "Use asswipe!", came his reply. At which point, he wandered off. "What's asswipe?", I thought. "Some kind of cleaning product?" I couldn't find anything with the word "asswipe" on it. I proceeded to clean the lanterns with my t-shirt.
When he came back and noticed my filthy t-shirt, he seemed puzzled as to why I hadn't used asswipe. Once he explained what it was, I realised it was a cleaning product, of sorts.
