"I am Science!!", Episode #6

...with Dr. Logan W. Herbert.

In the USA, everyone has an ass, hence phrases like 'get your
ass in here'. As everyone knows, an ass is a Donkey. Where did all these Donkeys come from?

A breeding program started by Dwight Eisenhower in the early 1950's.

It was thought that donkey would make a cheap and delicious beef substitute.

This, of course, was assinine.

Donkey burgers simply taste like ass.
Public reaction was immediate.

The excess donkeys, going uneaten, eventually stacked so high, one didn't know their ass from their elbows.

Thus, they were trucked away, to be sealed off in old abandoned mineshafts, or ass-holes.

By the mid/late 50's these old forgotten ass-holes became popular coupling sites for hormonal teenagers, hence, "fucking ass-holes".

And the following generation, being largely concieved at such sites, were known as such in popular shorthand.

Many colorful ass related and adjacent metaphors share a similar pedigree, but I think you can probably sort them out yourself.

Failing such, pull it out of your ass.

I am made of science!
