    It's a Level 0 pun. Pork fat.
    So, the first word is a derogatory name for a Ukrainian woman, the second is an endearing word for a pig. How does it bear on pork fat?

    You mean like "You accept linguistic ..." or like "You can expect anything except linguistic ..." ?

    Well, I expect competence from anyone who sports his Russian skills whenever he gets a chance.

    I could accept it if you were more careful with using derogatory names for nations. Otherwise I expect that next you would come up with something like wopasta (wop+pasta), shakshukike (shakshuka+kike), niggeribs (nigger+ribs). Or would these be considered unacceptable for a public forum like this? Or does using Cyrillic absolve you from being considered abusive?

    I've owned that my Russian is uneven, but sometimes the context is ripe.

    Those don't work well as puns.

    My understanding was that khokhol is considered a fairly playful sobriquet like "limey" or "cheesehead". I apologize for being a goat.

    They are not meant as puns but as telescopic words (like brunch= breakfast + lunch).

    For a Russian who uses it, it may be what you describe. Not so for Ukrainians. But the apology is accepted.

    £Expect" was what I meant.

    Dyslexia is the bane of my wit - I'm at least 400% funnier in real life, 800% if you're a woman.

    And 1600% if you are a tipsy woman?
