I'm so glad there was no mention of Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj. Way to go! :)

Regarding the first mention of "bootylicious" it was actually Snoop Dogg back in 1992 on "Dre Day" from Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" album. Different context, though. He was using it to mean anything good.

Sorry, I meant Snoop WASN'T using it to mean anything good.

I just listened to your "butt" podcast and I just wanted to say my favorite line in a movie is in PeeWee Herman's big Adventure when he is sitting inside the dinasaur with the waitress and she is telling him about wanting to go to Paris and she says but....and PeeWee says..."There's always a big butt"...LOL Love it.

Aww...someone beat me to it.

Quoth Snoop Dogg:

"Your bark was loud, but your bite wasn't vicious
And them rhymes you were kickin were quite bootylicious"

-Dre Day 1992

I installed the Cloud to Butt Plus extension at work today and I have been extremely unproductive ever since. This HAS to be the best one:

"How to Explain my Butt to End Users
'Nobody understands my butt,' says a lead character in the summer comedy 'Sex Tape.' My butt and butt computing have become an essential part of IT infrastructures -- but could your employees use a Butt 101 primer?"

At the very end of the episode Karen quotes Ace Ventura. In the movie he talks "from his butt". Was this intended?
