Generally speaking, a contract cannot be changed after it has been signed by both parties.
son of a gun 与 son of a bitch：
son of a gun 是对好友表示一种惊讶的口语（an interjection or an exclamation of surprise between very good friends），有点像「坏蛋」、「家伙」的味道。
但 son of a bitch（或 SOB）是美国人极为严重的骂人话（curse word），千万不可乱用，以免闹事。因为这不但意味这位 son 没有确定的父亲，同时母亲也是缺乏道德和贞操（less virtuous）。 例如：
* I have not seen you for a long time；you （are）son of a gun！（你这坏蛋啊，我好久不见你了！）
* After the two men called each other“son of a bitch”（SOB）,they started a fight.（这两位男子互骂SOB後，就动起武来。）
至於 son of a gun 的来由，据说从前女人可以住在海军船上服务。结果一位女人生下孩子时，不知父亲是谁，於是船上的人，就以「gun」做为孩子的 paternity，孩子也就被称为「son of a gun」。虽然只用在好友中，但有时也真有坏蛋的意思（evil person or a rogue）所以不是恭维语（complimentary word），除非真正好友，少用为妙。
