Nothing. No more than calling a geezer a geezer.

Of course if he was one of those figured in "Old Age is not for Sissies", he
may twist your head off, but what's life without a little danger?

I wonder if your know that bird is slang for women. I guess you would say broad.
Anyway now days its supposed to be sexist to call a bird a bird.

Linus, Charlie Brown, I found the Great Pumpkin.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like a good time to visit, as it looks like
he's looking for ... um Mrs. Pumpkin.

"Ptak" is either Polish or Russian for "bird". I don't know what "Chces
videt muj ptak?" is, I don't think there is a sound that transliterates
to 'j' from Cyrillic, but if I had to guess, it says "Do you want to see my
bird". "Ptakovina" is probably a diminutive or a woman's name.

The English translation of the title, complete with double-entendre, is, : "May
I show you my bird?" Ptak is Czech both for generic bird and for cock.
However "Ptakovina" literally means a joke, a trick.
