AKA (also known as) the Ego.

Marcus, do you have an ASS?

Auban takes daily psychopharmaceutical medication (suppositories) for his ASS.

Auban certainly does not have an ass. He has an arse and an arsehole. Asses eat grasses.*

The suppositories are deelish when dissolved in 50% (100% proof) absinthe. Smoking them had little effect.

*(The word 'donkey' comes from Duncan, the Scottish forename which came to be used as a term for a stupid person, a hayseed, someone from the Boonies. This will be repeated in my blog for the the seventh of December.)

ASS = Acute Self-importance Syndrome. ;-)

Wofl said...

Yes, I got that ! I was simply pointing out that only in the US does Ass mean what elsewhere in the anglosphere is the original form: Arse. Ass is a bowdlerisation, like shoot! for shit! in the land of the Puritan(ical)s.

EVIList--thank you for cleverly pointing out I do have ASS. Unfortunately, mine "are" rather well-toned for a man of my age, exercising them frequently and vigorously.
