Microsoft's new Zune player may generate smutty laughter in Quebec.

A report explains that in French-speaking Canada, the word 'Zune' is a euphemism for male or female genitalia.

"The French word "zoune'' and the variant "bizoune'' typically serve as a less jolting way of referring to male or female genitalia when addressing children," the report explains.

Microsoft spokesperson Nathalie Bergeron told that the word isn't in the dictionary, adding that the name "posed no risk of becoming known as an embarrassing double entendre," the report explains.

A Quebec resident reportedly disagreed, saying: "All of Quebec has been giggling for the last couple of days at the thought of Mr. Gates swearing that there was an 80 per cent chance that he'd whip out his little zoune before the holiday season."
