1.- Butterfly has not butter not fly
2.- In spanish Guinea pig is ( literal) Indian's little rabbit, and not from india , not rabbit
I think like Riccardo that in all languages are not logical words
And I don't know if in English or italian happen but in spanish is usual that the same word has a right meaning in a country even in a state of a country and in another this word is a grossness word.
When I came to Venezuela I always said grossness, because the 3 verbs that cuban use in most times two of them in Venezuela means to f##k and the other is orgasm, and in Cuba we use them as to shoot, to finish and to take
That's the languages on the world!
