The wife and I went to the Ertl Farm Toy Show several years ago. The main swap and sell was in the high school and the line to get in was huge, of course we were bringing up the tail end. As we entered (finally), there was a nice young lady sitting there taking money and a nice young gentleman standing beside her offering greetings. After paying our dues we go down a short hallway, then turn and enter the gymnasium. My wife stops and whispers something to me. I step back around the corner, catch the attention of the young man and motion him to me. He comes over, and I whisper "xyz". He just looks at me like he missed the point of a joke, and I feel like I talking to a two year old. Not being too swift all I do is repeat it more slowly "x...y...z". Now he's looking worried like maybe he should call police about this nut, and it dawns on me he's never heard the expression. "eXamine Your Zipper". He get a look of shock and embarrassment and says "Oh Lord, I just greeted 5000 people with my fly down!!", thanks me and goes back to the young lady (after repairing himself) laughing. I grin and go back to my wife and the show.

1-How many of you knew what "xyz" meant?
2-If your a woman, would you have done what my wife did? (she made me promise not to tease her before she told me!)
3-If your a guy, would you have told the guy or let sleeping dogs lie?

And RonAr, I know what your thinking and you should be ashamed of yourself!LOL

I'd always heard it "XYZPDQ", which is the same thing with "Pretty D... Quick" tagged on the end.

nope xyz didn't ring any bells. normally i'd say something or motion but you know those ladies that kinda glide by like they're on air? well i glanced back at a gorgeous tall gal once and couldn't resist pointing her out to the missus. everything was perfect except for that fabric softener sheet waving off the back of her shoulder! i think it was fabric softener. aw what the heck - we let her go. :)

#1 I knew exactly what you were talking about
#2 N/A
#3 Yup, I would have told him! Would hate to have little Willy make a guest appearance at an inopportune time!!
