Nudgenudge

Created by: Buzzardbilly

Pronunciation: ˈnəjˈnəj

Sentence: You have to know they weren't really talking about stapling documents in such detail; they were nudgenudging with double entendres. Really, if they nudgenudge anymore, I might just have to tell them we all know they're dating because every conversation they have is filled with nudgenudges.

Etymology: From the infamous Monty Python "Nudge Nudge" sketch about making everything be sexual innuendo and is often referred to as "wink wink, nudge nudge."

Sentence: in order to organise where they were going to hook up after the work function they needed to apply some lovercover
