Subject: Butt Naked!!

Written By: lorac61469 on 06/03/06 at 6:52 pm

Probably a stupid topic that'll get buried but this is something that is driving me bonkers.


I hear people saying "butt naked" when they're talking about someone being nude.  I've alway thought it was BUCK naked. 

Another one that people use is 'butt of the joke" but I've always use "brunt".

So tell me, which do you think is correct?

Either and either.

I have heard both phrases said both ways, I use butt for both.

Another phrase along this line is "Spitting Image", to me this makes no sense.
I have always said, "Splitting Image." If you split an image you'll have two like
images. How do you Spit an image?

The phrase "spitting image" most likely derives from the dialect of the Deep South region of the United States, wherein "spit" was a corruption of "spirit" and "spittin'," a further corruption of "spirit and." Thus the son who is the "spittin' image" of his father resembles him in both spirit and image, the two words representing the whole sphere of the intangible and the tangible.

Others say, perhaps too glibly, that the name comes from British slang, an apparent misunderstanding of the established term "spit and image"; a person who closely resembles another person can be described as their "spitting image". Furthermore, in the early 1980s in Britain spitting was still perceived by the public as an inextricable component of the punk phenomenon. It would seem that the first explanation is the more reasonable one.

You are correct, the proper term is buck naked.

The term has been corrupted by people who could not pronounce "buck".  :-\\

Actually, they're both right.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buck_naked

Dating from the 1920s, the expression buck naked commonly means completely or totally naked or without a "stitch" (as opposed to partially naked). Synonyms include "bare naked", "buck-arse naked", and "butt naked" (also spelled, facetiously, "butt nekkid"). In the American South, "buck naked" or "butt naked" means not in your house, out looking for trouble on Saturday night and wearing no clothes.

There is much debate over the origin of this phrase. Many argue that "butt naked" came first and that "buck" was later adopted by some to tone down any vulgarity perceived in using the word "butt." Regardless of origin, the Associated Press style guide currently advises using "buck naked."

"Buck" derives from the male of a number of breeds of animal. It also refers to a colour, to the skin of a deer. It has military references meaning a low rank. Used in relation to money it colloquially refers to the Dollar in many countries.

get our best minds on this one. I'm thinking prank is meant to be a joke, not sure about crank, bit where I work at we simply refer to them as annoyance calls. I used to be a "Annoyance Call Specialist" worked with the police, set up phone line traces. It was cool. We busted a few people.  8)

I've always said prank.  Maybe the point of the calls is to make the person answering cranky.  Dunno?

Speaking of crank calls, ever see the show Crank Yankers?
