Mickey Mantle's Mickey

Inspite of growing up in India, not knowing what baseball is, "first base, second base, third base, home run" euphemism was often used during school and college. Especially in the company of girls as it was assumed that girls are even further removed from baseball than boys.

I got reminded of this when I read about Mantle's mickey and its tales. (Warning: Who knows what's suitable at your workplace?)

Update: Friend S reminds me of the Dinesh suiting ad where friend Sunny had hit it out of the park. Apparently, schoolkids in Bombay imitated Sunny's home run, give or take a few blondes, after that.
