Joke of the Butt

Go To
"Excuse me! I'd like to ass you a few questions."
"Boy cheeks. Fanny. Derierre! Heinie! Backside! Cover up that coin slot!"
Ned Flanders, The Simpsons, "To Surveil with Love"

People have various configurations of equipment in the fronts of their crotches, but everybody has the same naughty bits in the rear ends. Yes, we're talking about bums. Everybody has a bottom, through which they fart and poop. As such, the rear end has been a subject of humour since time immemorial. People just find arses funny. Indeed, as this very page demonstrates, there are many, many terms for the derrière, most of which are pretty funny in their own right.

May overlap with Embarrassing Hospital Gown, Mooning, Shaking the Rump, and Toilet Humour. Can be seen as the backside version of Boob-Based Gag. Stuffy Old Songs About the Buttocks often enter this, even if unintentionally. Despite the name, this has nothing to do with Butt-Monkey or Iron Butt Monkey.
