I think something got lost in translation from French to English. 😊

Not really as the first husband was not well endowed.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

There is a problem in the translation. The sentence, "What does it make to be with a second-hand ?" doesn't quite make sense to me.

Yes, a barbarism coming directly from the French ...I should have written something like "How do you feel with your second hand ?"

Context, a man is talking with his ex-wife’s new husband in the first sentence.

The one I heard goes like this:

Justin Beiber was talking to Selena Gomez's new boyfriend:
Justin - so, how does it feel playing with used goods?
BF - it's alright man.... after the first two inches, everything feels as good as new!
