The Pun That Got Away

In my Renaissance Literature seminar, I was listening to one of my classmates talk about how women were represented in the literature of the time. She mentioned how women who attempted to learn and acquire knowledge for themselves were at that time regarded as unnatural and "hermaphroditic". I was about to ask if she meant "androgynous", but then realised I couldn't open my mouth, because if I did, I'd make some awful joke about "boning up."

Somehow, I managed not to blurt out anything, and the seminar finished with everyone none the wiser that I am in fact a childish idiot.
