Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.42.2
kā tvaḿ varorv etad u hānulepanaḿ
kasyāńgane vā kathayasva sādhu naḥ
dehy āvayor ańga-vilepam uttamaḿ
śreyas tatas te na cirād bhaviṣyati
kā — who; tvam — you; vara-ūru — O beautiful-thighed one; etat — this; u ha — ah, indeed; anulepanam — ointment; kasya — for whom; ańgane — My dear woman; vā — or; kathayasva — please tell; sādhu — honestly; naḥ — Us; dehi — please give; āvayoḥ — to Us two; ańga-vilepam — body ointment; uttamam — excellent; śreyaḥ — benefit; tataḥ — thereafter; te — your; na cirāt — soon; bhaviṣyati — will be.
[Lord Kṛṣṇa said:] Who are you, O beautiful-thighed one? Ah, ointment! Who is it for, my dear lady? Please tell Us truthfully. Give Us both some of your finest ointment and you will soon gain a great boon.
The Lord jokingly addressed the lady as varoru, "O beautiful-thighed one." His joke was not malicious, since He was actually about to make her beautiful.
