It's Spanish

Billy’s mouth gets him into more trouble than he can handle. His mouth writes checks his rear end can’t cash, so to speak. He has picked up some bad words along the way. One of the words he gets in trouble for the most is the three-letter word that also means donkey. The other day, my husband told Billy, “muchas gracias.” Billy heard the end of the second word and said, “Ooooooh, you said a bad word!” No matter how many times Scott tried to convince him, Billy was sure that he had just violated the rules. Scott insisted, “It’s Spanish! It means, ‘thank you very much’!” Billy would not be persuaded. Yesterday, Billy called me a ‘dumbo.’ We told him that wasn’t a nice thing to say, to which he replied, “It’s Spanish.... It means ‘flower’!” Well, we know he's not a dumbo!
