I hear when Haitians say mwen grangou it can be sexually suggestive. Is it true?

Whenever I think of the word "grangou", I usually think of hunger, famine, food and sometimes coconuts and cassava :)  But now that you've got this into my head, I'm gonna have to think twice whenever a beggar in the street say "mwen grangou" :)
But seriously, I think that when 95% of Haitians say they're hungry, they're expressing a desire to eat.... food.
