Dear peabutter,

Slán,

Right on, Ailill!

No biggy but I was kind of surprised that you translated
it "Kiss my ass!". Books that I have seen published in England
translate it as "Kiss my arse" and I've heard British tourists
here in Seattle say things like "I just about fell on my arse!
In linguistics they call this kind of r an Intrusive r and the
British use it in other words too like awrfull "awfull" etc.

Oh yes, we do say arse but I saw the poster was from Nu Yoik.
