You know when your car starts making a weird sound, and you have no idea what the sound means, but you know it's probably not good? And then you take your car to a mechanic, and you try to describe that sound? This picture posted on Reddit by a user with the handle kylet2272 is a pretty good example of someone's attempt to describe the sound to the repair desk without having an actual recording of it.

"Oh sure, I know exactly the sound you mean."
"Oh sure, I know exactly the sound you mean."

In the description field of the repair center's work ticket, the customer service representative wrote, apparently word-for-word, how the customer described the sound. It reads, "Check rattle noise like 2 skeletons making out on a tin roof during a hail storm using a tin can for a condom."

True, skeletons just making out wouldn't necessarily need a condom, but as a Redditor named UselessGadget so astutely commented, "Being they are skeletons, any touching would be considered boning." BOOM, nailed it.
