List It Tuesday







































It's another edition of List It Tuesday. Head over to artsyville to check out more lists.

A few weeks ago I went to see Blue Man Group and the show ended with a huge, blow-out dance party. Amid strobe lights, streamers, and the biggest beach balls I've ever seen, the audience was encouraged to "get off your ass" and participate in a communal booty shake. An anonymous voice listed every word imaginable for a certain body part while the words flashed on a giant screen. After a few dozen words the names started to get pretty ridiculous and funny, but it made me realize that there are a ridiculous number of slang words for the good old buttocks. Here is my list of some of the most common nicknames for the part of the anatomy that you sit on. These were right off the top of my head and all that I could fit on a page of my Moleskine. I probably use the term "butt" most often, but I remember my mother was rather fond of calling it a "fanny." Do you have a favorite nickname that I missed?

"fanny" is a funny word- I used to use it all the time until my friend (now living in the UK) told me it translates into something *very* different over there!

Great Idea, must give this a try.

An expression my late mother used in the 1070s was 'Botty' hehehe
