Lang pa gen zo - Tongues have no bones. Kisa sa vle di?

My great aunt used to say:
Lang ou pa gen zo.  Li pa rèd.  Ou kapab donte'l.
You tongue has no bones.  It's not stiff.  You can tame it.

Some other people take it to mean that You can communicate your needs with ease, since "your tongue has no bones"

  1. So is this saying that essentually you can control what come out of your mouth? Is it said when someone says something inappropriate?
