Post German Pun Question
I've been trying to translate GEKUPPELT, for no apparent reason, and I was wondering about one of the lines.

"Zu wenig Masse?"

I seems that it can translate as two things, mostly the word 'masse.'

"Too little mass"
Or
"Too small assets"

Am I right and is this an intentional pun about Dinah's cleavage?

I thought it was just a mistake, as it was pretty quickly amended to 'hat zu viel masse'.

But it follows the line:

Zuviel geladen?
Too much load?
So that would be sort of redundant.

Redundant maybe, but I'm pretty sure that's what it is.
