Pardon my patootie


cutie patootie1Recently, I used the word “patootie” on a FaceBook post, and a friend asked if I had made up the word! Gosh, I wish I could take credit for it, but since I can’t, I thought I’d share some background on the word that is used as a slang term for your backside (derriere or buttocks).

 

cutie patootie2According to the Oxford online Dictionary, patootie came into usage in America in the 1920s and is used to describe “a cute or attractive young woman”, while its secondary meaning is “a person or animal’s buttocks”.

Hmmmm, so basically when you use the word you’re referring to an attractive woman who has a cute butt?
