"Bitten in ze butt!Animals are one of nature's beauties of the earth. Some are cute and cuddly while others can be rather shy. However, there's this kind of animal, the biting kind that can literally bite you on the butt if you're not careful. This breed of animal is what's known as a Butt Biter; they can be dogs, cats, pigs, ferrets, any other animal you can think of. The next time you come across this type of animal, beware. Often results in the butt-biter making off with a piece of trouser fabric, leaving a hole behind through which Goofy Print Underwear may be visible. A much less violent variant is someone getting their pants pulled down by a biting animal, often while attempting to escape. Usually happens to men, but women are not immune to this. Subtrope of: Amusing Injuries and Literal Ass-Kicking. Compare: Animals Hate Him, Rump Roast, Shot in the Ass and Thumbtack on the Chair. Is likely to cause a Pain-Powered Leap. Has nothing to do with Beavis And Butthead, even though one of Butthead's favorite insults was "buttmunch."
Got an awful tear!

I will get you in ze end, dog!
You'll regret you bit me, chum!
Ooooh, I am so irritated I got bitten in ze bum!"
