"Crack Found in Man's Buttocks."

It's a real headline. (Via Language Log.)

This qualifies as a Bottom Story of the Day.

Given your fascination with genitalia, one might think you would know the definition of the word. Hint: it involves organs used to reproduce. Last time I checked, the buttocks were not involved in that process. Is it different for Professor A-House?

I assume the person in question was a plumber?

dr K: I know. I thought about that. I didn't want to create a new tag just for the ass. I considered my old tag "naked." I wasn't happy with this compromise.

Ann Althouse said...

Okay. I've changed the tag. I'm going with "body parts," which is a new tag, applicable to may old posts. Hard to know how to dig them all up.

Perhaps those that partake in crack should think about where it might have been the next time they are so inclined. But then again, I guess crack addicts are probably not so fastidious.

Only that she seems to be plagued by replicating pompous butthole commenters like Dr. K - dickwad pedantic pains in the ass - to whom, for some reason, she remains nice, patient, and accommodating.

The plumbers in Dominionist movement are going to push for legislation to prohibit the demeaning of plumbers- plumbers crack. They want the name changed to crack addicts crack or crack crack.

Well, duh.

I once took care of a 700 pound man. He once hid a sandwich under an abdominal fold. It was at least a day old when I found it.

A 400 pound patient of mine once hid a donut under her breast. True story. It wasn't glazed ...anymore.

You're cracking up.
