Hiney – Either of the two rounded prominences on the human torso that are posterior to the hips and formed by the gluteal muscles and underlying structures.
In other words a person’s rear end: buttocks. Americans use the word “butt,” which I’d never heard before I emigrated here. For some reason this word tickled me no end, as does hiney. Actually, butt is funnier, hiney is just kind of weird. How on earth did they come up with that one?
So here’s a joke kids tell. “Did you know boys have four knees? Their left knee, their right knee, their hiney, and their weenie!” (I’ll have to remember to use weenie for when I come to the Ws. On second thought, maybe not.)
