outside the immediate home surroundings


OK, now you have me wondering - what s-word are you referring to? If it's
too impolite to type out completely, a few asterisks in the right places
would probably do the trick.

No, that refers to another part of the anatomy. (Hint: there's a reason
why the term is almost always used to insult men.) I thought Baha was
referring to a synonym for one's butt, since the original word (which is
still in the subject line, also means butt.

I'm curious - how do people pronounce the word "tuchas"?


I have no clue at all being a Brit, but I would guess at "touchuz" and I
still don't know what it means.


Say it like "took-us" except with the German "ch". "Like you'd say
"Eccchhh!"
when you go for a walk and step on a fresh pile of doggy-doo. Your tuchas
is,
as Hawkeye Says in M*A*S*H, "the derriere, the back of my front, the
fleshy
part."


Thanks for the explanation. At least I now know how to pronounce it, even
though I don't suppose I'll ever need to use it ;-)

My mother and grandparents were so anxious for me to be posh that they
punished me once when I said "bum" which means the same as tuchas in UK
slang I suppose.
The correct word apparently is "bottom.."
I still can't say bum without expecting thunder and lightning descending
upon me. I avoid it..
