    Default "Puinsai"

    I must not be truly local. For years, I have seen car stickers saying "Puinsai" and I don't know what it means. Somebody help!

    It's a historical ... or hysterical..fact..that
    Hawaiian Creole English .. pidgin to us guyz,
    like most languages have words and phrases
    with layered meanings.

    To wit, "Puinsai" has several meanings, note-
    worthy of course, is the one with the sexual
    connotation.

    While not being a expert in the Hawaiian
    language by any means, I found some fascinating
    reading in Mary Kawena Pukui's
    "Olelo No'eau" which contain vast renderings
    of Hawaiian proverbs and poetical sayings that
    are both profound, enlightening, and humorous.

    For those of Hawaiian descent and those
    who have an intrest in things Hawaiian, it
    is a treasure of proverbial and poetical sayings,
    an heirloom to be passed on to their children
    and their children's children.

    For even those who casually examine it,
    you will find it a volume of beauty, showing
    the knowledge, compassion, foibles, and humor
    of the Hawaiian people.

    It's printed by Bishop Museum Press and
    can be found at amazon.com

    Now excuse me 'cuz me and Lurkah going on one
    punani patrol...and maybe poke squid
    tonite
    "I was going call 911 ...but I neva know da numbah"
