How funny! My husband was watching a documentary about Chesty Puller on the Military Channel over the weekend. Every time I passed through the livingroom, I heard his name and was struck by its likelihood of misinterpretation.

For me, the word "chesty" will always be associated with that Simpsons episode when Homer suggested that Marge could change her name to Busty St. Clair, Hootie McBoobity, or Chesty LaRue.

In the UK it's most commonly used to mean 'wheezy' -- as in, "that's a chesty cough you've got".
