Expressões com a palavra BUTT [very informal]

If this was a movie and not a post, some kind of warning would pop up saying viewer discretion is advised. Okay, that's actually a bit of an exaggeration. I'm saying that because all the expressions we're going over today contain a very informal word, sometimes considered offensive: BUTT. Therefore, if you don't want to take the risk of sounding rude or impolite, please don't use these expressions. On the other hand, I think it's important for you to know and understand them in the case you hear them [and you probably will]. So without further ado, let's dive straight in!

You know when someone is being bullied? There are actually many things that can happen when that's happening. One of the most common practice among bullies is to make someone the main target of ridicule, wit, etc. So suppose you get into your classroom and a friend of yours is the aim of every joke. Everybody seems to be enjoying that moment, but you are very bothered by the way your friend's embarrassed. As soon as your class is over, you call your friend aside and give him a piece of advise. You say: I don't think you should be the butt of every joke. If I were you, I'd go straight to the principal and let him know about what's happening to you. But wait, what do you mean by "the butt of every joke"? When you're the butt of a joke, you're the one people are laughing at, making fun of. Maybe they say something funny or embarrassing about you, and you become the butt of the joke. That's a position nobody likes to be in, but it's very usual to see people having fun at other people's expense. When was the last time you became the butt of a joke?

Since we're already in the context of a school, imagine you've been paired up with some of your classmates to do an assignment. You're actually not very happy with a specific person you've been set up with, so you tell one of your friends: Have you seen who's working with us? He can't find his butt with both hands in broad daylight, let alone contribute to this assignment. That's actually something very rude to say. When someone can't find his butt with both hands in broad daylight, he's very stupid and incompetent. Just take the literal meaning of the expression and imagine how stupid someone would have to be to not be able to find his butt with both hands. You can replace the word butt with ass. But make sure you're using caution with these expressions. Butt is not as offensive as ass, but it is also very offensive to some people. That's all for today guys. See you next time!
