And since we're doing Trivia today...

What does the term BO DOI mean (Vietnamese)? Was reading and there was a reference to "saw several BO DOI". (Hope someone knows the answer, I don't....)

Thanks WebSkipper. I don't know any VietNamese (other than a brand of beer - Signal Bridge and Brolly better be grinning) so wasn't sure what they were talking about.

Here's one of many Vietnam slang glossaries out there, this one also has links to slang used by the "redlegs" and the "jarheads" (A term I use with much affection for my Marine Corps friends)

A warning, some of the terms are most definitely not PG rated
