    He’s not into it, but he is into her.

    Why must street slang devolve into baby talk?

    “Po-po,” sopunds like a child who hasn’t quite learned to talk yet.

    “My bad,” is another that sounds absolutely like a small blubbering child.

    Agreed. “Mea culpa” sounds much better and people won’t necessarily know you are admitting you are wrong.

    And not all that many folks know it is Latin for “My Fault”, except maybe older Roman Catholics raised in the Latin Mass.

    You care about someone enough, their interests start to become your interests.

    Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa; through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. (Strikes chest with fist each mea) And I haven’t been to mass in over twenty years!

    Actually, the English translation has been added back into the penitential rite when the whole liturgy was redone recently.

    Ah, thanks. That sounds much more elegant than does growling, “I suppose it’s all my fault!” to family.

    I have long liked “my bad” since it owns the fault, my bad not my mistake, not my accident, not “he made me do it” or “I was just following orders.”
    .
    Rephrased: " I alone have sinned and my sin is ever before me." It is usually said as an apology with acceptance of guilt.
    .
    “Po po” not so much, nor cop, copper, pig, fuzz (although that one is fun), Smokey the Bear, the heat. “The Man” amuses me, can be taken either way, liked it in SCHOOL OF ROCK when the student tells the principal “You the Man” and she thanks him.

    At least she didn’t say “Fuzz”

    @Travis Brewer

    There was a science fiction story about a robotic law enforcement officer named Brillo, because he was metal fuzz
    .
    and then the 1632 stories have an additionally imaginary ram called Brillo because his wool is so coarse that it is like steel wool. In the stories, he is used to symbolize the common German people, tough but not sophisticated.

    @itisme

    Yeah, I can’t get used to that. In NYPD Blue, “po-po” meant something totally different :-O
