What's the joke with this? The guys couldn't say what it was on the commentary. John said it was something like 'taint nuthin there'

What were they talking about? Was it jsut another penis joke?

Susie Dieter or Tress explained what it means.

Basically: A 12 year old is a tween, therfore Tweenis 12.

Tweens are preteens, usually referred to as 12 year olds. Though I think it can also referrer to ages 6-12 also.
That's what I got out of it at least.

Funny, I had always assumed it was more along the lines of "(be)tweenus 12."

Although they do suggest on the commentary that it has another meaning, through Jeff's comments about not talking about "unpleasant things in the commentary" and John's synonyms - "taint" and "UA - the useless area." So, anyone?

I had heard "taint" before but I didn't know where the name came from before Billy West explained it.

I had a feeling that was it, although I was a bit thrown by John's "UA" synonym.

Around here we refer to it as a Schmagmar.

I called myself a preeteen before I was 13. I thought tweens sounded stupid.

hey it's ok, you'll grow out of being the scum of the earth eventually.

i didn't realise it was a joke either. then again, i'm not so fast in my old years.  the perenium is a pretty useless area, if that's what the joke was about.

Getting horribly off topic, I forgive you and admit that while I don't have to take it from the man or pay rent or any of that crap, I can't drive.  Or get a job.
