Cheated? "Choad" has been rooted firmly in my vernacular since my highschool days in rural Pennsylvania, where it was universally taken to mean a penis of highly unusual proportions. I believed the word to have Amish origins. For these reasons, it was reserved for special situations whereas words like "doosh" and "assbag" were thrown about all throughout the day. Not until dental school in New England did I encounter people who thought the choad to be merely a taint, an anatomical structure shared by one and all -- barring certain birth defects -- albeit the female taint is very small, almost negligible. I took this as a regional peculiarity, as New Englanders are a peculiar people. Not until moving West did I find that the ambiguity is nearly universal, shaking the very foundations of my slang vocabulary.
It never occurred to me to check out wiki for a definition of choad. Now that I have followed rklein's link I see that the word is "officially" (it is Wikipedia) applicable to both situations. I find this troubling for two reasons.
1. When I am calling someone a choad or being called a choad myself I would like to be clear that it denotes either a freakish dick or a patch of skin that is likely to be oily and possibly populated with dingleberries.
2. A penis of such unusual proportions as to qualify as a choad is a very rare and special thing whereas the taint or grundle is common to all human beings. The former definition provides an air of mystique and grandeur whereas the latter is rote. It's the difference between a unicorn and a horse.
I also didn't like the alternative spelling "chode".
I hereby propose that the definition of "choad" as perineum (the fleshy patch between genitals and anus) be stricken from the record. A decree must set forth by the appropriate authority banning all future use of the word as such, punishable by papercuts on the grundle.
OH..and Cali would be super sweet if it weren't full of choads.
