I'm afraid I have been somewhat innocently causing offense by using the term "money shot" in its general, non-pornographic sense. My coworkers either have dirty minds or lack awareness of the other context.
Seems I'm not the first to make this gaffe.
Regardless of the speculation on the term's origin being pornographic or not, I'd like to sidestep the sniggers and raised eyebrows. Is there a different, equivalent idiom or word I can replace it with?
The closest I could come up with is "there's the rub"... which isn't exactly equivalent (and isn't passing muster with the juvenile minds either :)
